Great BBQ, the pit turkey sandwich is a favorite in our house

We're within 2 miles of this place, so it's a regular stop for us. I LOVE their BBQ sauce. The fries are always excellent, and my son loves their mac-n-cheese. The pit turkey sandwich is SO yummy. The turkey is always perfect. I've never had mediocre food there, much less bad food. The... read more

Can't trust this place. Not sure why Howard County lets this place stay open. I didn't frequent too often, and last visit was the last time. Watched the kid do everything but wash his hands while I waited for my order to be taken. Decided to go somewhere else and haven't returned.

I go here about once a week! Their wood-fired Roast Beef sandwiches and french fries are the best, I would go there JUST for the french fries!! Better than Thrashers in Ocean City, MD

We love Canopy! I've tried just about everything there, and it's all good. The pulled pork and pit ham/beef sandwiches are terrific. The barbecued chicken with spicy sauce is great. And the ribs are awesome. Sides are great too -- especially the fries!

As other reviewers have noted, this is a carryout only facility. But even if you plan to eat in the car, it offers some delicious food. Pit Beef (a Baltimore tradition), Pit Ham, Pit Pork and Pit Turkey headline the menu. The french fries are worth the 30 minute drive from our house! There are other sides available as well... More

I live a half-mile from Canopy, so I've been able to give them lots of business over the years. I don't want to sound like I'm disputing the rave reviews I see here, but my most recent experiences (the last few dozen) haven't been quite as stellar. The pit turkey is always excellent, and the bbq sandwiches are always very... More

I live in Alexandria, VA and my wife and I have driven to Ellicott City for the pit beef, chicken and crab soup three times in the last 2 months. I first had a taste when my dad, uncle and cousin, who all lived in/around the area at some point recommended Canopy as the place to go in MD for... More

This is the place that my son and I visit when the women are busy or out of town. Best turkey sandwich - for variety try half smoked turkey, half pit ham. The fries are really good - I grew up loving Thrashers Fries in OC, these are even better. Oh yeah - best coleslaw - hands down.

We've been fans of The Canopy since it was a cement slab and tent on Rt 40. The menu is simple but tasty. The food is reasonably priced. Each sandwich is made to order. Pit beef can be ordered by temperature--I like mine rare but my husband prefers well done--not a problem. They sell boardwalk style fries which are a... More
