Cheap Eats in Silver Spring

You're walking down the street as the pangs of hunger begin to settle in, but there are only a few meager bills in your pocket. Everyone's been there. Sometimes hunger strikes at the most inopportune time.

Samantha's Restaurant: more than just 'fine' cuisine

At first glance, it looks like nothing out of the ordinary Ė it's a small place that sits innocuously off University Boulevard between two shady-looking parking lots. Yet, Samantha's serves some of the most delicious Latin American food in the DC area.

Hiding in plain sight

We all love Chipotle's burrito bowls, Santucci's artisan sandwiches and Subway's fresh footlongs, but there are some places across the street that stay hidden in the shadows of those Four Corners staples. We pass by Four Corners every day before school, after school, and during school (just kidding, because we have closed lunch, of course!), yet somehow we ignore the independent eateries just a short walk away.

Sides shine at Jackie's Restaurant

Beyond two velvet black curtains lies an eclectic-urban hangout with fluorescent lights and fading brick walls. After a grueling start to the week, a Southern comfort menu marries beautifully to a chic city eat-out.

Hollywood East Cafe

Hollywood East Cafe is located in the "Restaurant Row" section of the Wheaton Mall located on Veirs Mill road in Wheaton about a 10 minute drive from Montgomery Blair High School. The restaurant itself seems kind of hidden under a canopy of the mall so it can be kind of tough to find from the outside. The Hollywood East Cafe was not a very big restaurant, it was smaller than it looked but still seemed to fit about 50-60 people on a busy day.

Not your average Tex-Mex restaurant

With their sultry colors, dim lighting and vibrant Spanish and Mexican art, the restaurant provides you with a piquant dining escape. Their cultural paintings and traditional Spanish and Mexican food come together to craft an experience that is not to be forgotten.

Cozy Pacciís Pizzeria is Superbly Delicious

Pacci's Neopolitan Pizzeria in Silver Spring is tucked away in an inconspicuous corner in Downtown Silver Spring, right by the World building. Inside, Pacciís seems pretty small, with a bar, an open pizza oven, a few tables and dim lighting that adds a cozy feel. Their outdoor seating is very spacious. Although itís right on a busy road, itís quiet and tranquil, in part because of the soothing water fountain nearby. Green vines creep up the walls and bad pop music plays in the background. Itís the perfect place if you want to try new things or if you are going for something traditional.
