Our Favorite Restaurants
Here's a list of our local non-franchised preferences...
The Southwest Burger is my FAVORITE! And always make your plate a combo; the fries with their signature brau sauce is so, so good!
Bräuburgers Craft Burgers & Beer of Rivermont
2496 Rivermont Ave
The Southwest Burger is my FAVORITE! And always make your plate a combo; the fries with their signature brau sauce is so, so good!
This business use to be a simple pull-behind trailer that they moved from location to location, but they have recently placed some roots down finally. I really enjoy their original donut that made them famous, the apple cider donut. They now offer toppings, but no need really for these! Just the donut itself is enough!
Mama Crockett's Cider Donuts
500 Fifth St

If you like BBQ, then this is the place to eat! My personal favorite is the Southwest Cobb Salad topped with any of the smoked meats they offer plus their signature jalapeño ranch dressing.

Ok, so this one is franchised, sorry! But it's too good not to mention! If you want a little something different, their menu has a Greek Mediterranean flair. My fav...the Greek Chicken Pita with roasted vegetables or grilled potato salad on the side. And don't forget their chocolate chip cookie for desert; its loaded!

This isn't just any cinnamon bun place; it truly is gourmet! I've only tried two of the items on the menu so far, but both were exceptional! One was called the Chocolate Razzmatazz and the other was the Strawberry Amaretto. Delish!

Not sure if it is still on the menu, but if not I do believe one can still special order it. It's the Blackened Chicken Alfredo pizza. It's made with Alfredo sauce, chicken, diced tomatoes, and spinach. Definitely worth the trip!

Believe me, I know where to find the best desserts. The ice cream here is all made from scratch and is definitely worth the trip to Boonsborro. If you like chocolate, give the Rivermont flavor a try; you won't be disappointed!

Opened back in 1991 and has been a fav of many of the locals for so many years. I have always ordered their fajitas and finished the night with their fried ice cream topped with honey. Oh so good!
