We found Randy's Ribs when we moved to the area 15 years ago. It's still a take-out BBQ joint, but now they do have some picnic tables and they take credit cards now.
Excellent ribs and BBQ. They also have pulled pork, shredded pork, sliced beef and sometimes shredded chicken. The shredded chicken sandwich has been the only thing I wasn't wild about - it was a bit dry.
Randy's has a variety of sides in three different sizes. Some of my favorites are the baked beans, green beans and collard greens.
It's just a small place on the right side of the road on Route 5 North, between Hughesville and Waldorf, MD. Doesn't have too large a sign, so look for it. It's great BBQ!

The clean, spare look of the inside does not handicap this establishment at all! In fact, it is a great backdrop for the delicious, straightforward fresh dishes they concoct while you relax and enjoy some salsa music and you can already feel like you are on vacation somewhere, attending a local fiesta! Yes, the chimichangas are good if you like that sort of thing, but check out their array of beverages and it will take you away from your weekday work grind!

Pretty good Tex-Mex type food. We were there with a big group of adults and kids and the servers were very friendly with everyone. The food is standard fare taco, burrito, etc. type stuff, but again, pretty good.

This place looks like it's been here for years, and definitely takes you back in time. The menu is almost strictly "old time" Chesapeake seafood: crabcakes, fried oysters, broiled scallops, crab soup, etc. It's all very tasty. The restaurant feels a bit worn, but has nice river views. Service was efficient. My only hesitation in recommending the place is that it feels a bit expensive -- largely because Chesapeake seafood IS expensive. But they do participate in restaurant.com, so grab a discount certificate and have a traditional local meal at a reasonable price.

Locally owned and operated coffee shop offering espresso drinks, fresh brewed local coffee, smoothies, frappes, teas, lemonade and delicious hand scooped milk shakes. Breakfast sandwiches served all day and a great sandwich menu for lunch. All made to order.
Nice menu,simply consisted of sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. Fresh cooked egg for the sandwhich. About 4.50 for breakfast sandwhich, lunch about 6.50, all kinds of coffee, tv, couch and 4-5 tables. Two georgeous young ladies working. Choice of different breads, soup on menu. Will definitely go again.

You would never think a country store would have great food, but this one does! Their fried chicken is the best! also, very good, large sandwiches. They are the best for miles around! Almost 100% carryout. Fried chicken in bulk for parties and such!

Once again, we visited the Foxy Fish for my BD dinner, The scallop appetizer was outstanding, my shrimp scampi was perfect. The biggest surprise was the staff flicking the lights on and off and appearing at my table in silly sea creature hats, singing a version of Happy Birthday, It was terrific I did get a Sunday with a candle in lieu of cake!

I had dined here once before and accidentally underrated this restaurant. I attempted to correct my error with TripAdvisor, but they would not correct my error. The food, service and quality of the meal are all excellent. I highly recommend this location and restaurant to all.

The food here was great. The sandwiches are fresh and loaded with great toppings. The sandwiches are so large that I could not eat all of mine. I highly recommend blimpie. The food is great and the price is reasonable.

On our trip that took us through Charlotte Hall we stopped at Ledo Pizza, which has a good reputation as a chain from our Maryland friends.
The stop was at 2 and past the rush, so plenty of staff were going about their business causally. My wife and I split a small square pizza and we ordered kids meals for our two sons.
Kids meals $4.99 on menu or 9$9.98 total. We paid $16.34. How you might ask? the server charged us for drinks that she said were included (lemonade for the fountain, so nothing exotic) her excuse was we ordered the drinks before the meal and a different cup was used. That was $2.38 of the cost. On the menu, it said the kids get a dessert. We asked for one after the meal and she blankly looked at us. We asked about ice cream, which she brought the kids. When the bill had extra $4.98 on it, we pressed her on the charge. She told us the dessert was usually a couple of cookies or something, but they were out of them.
We could tell this was going nowhere and just paid and left. My wife, a former server, left what must be the lowest tip she could manage.
This is most likely a poor staff problem, but I always trace that back to management.
If you stop in here and Carly is your server, politely ask for a different server or think about another dining option in the area.
