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

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 prices went up a couple of month... 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

They only offer carryout, but the food was good. We got ribs (mild), cole slaw, baked beans and pulled pork and fries. My husband and I could not finish a rack of ribs ourselves they were so meaty. The sides were all tasty too. They do take credit cards now.

Do yourself a favor if you’re planning on going to an O’s game make this a stop along the way. The meat is served by the sandwich or by the pound and you can buy rolls separate. As far as I am concerned you will not find better pit BBQ anywhere else! You can get what you want the way... More

I wish I lived closer to The Canopy, I would be there at least one a week to pick up dinner. It's carryout only so don't plan on sitting down. Their pit turkey is divine! I order mine with onions and BBQ sauce, try their yummy boardwalk style fries as well.

It was tragic when this place burned down. When it reopened, dining in is no longer an option, but the food is still excellent. A route 40 landmark. Recommend the pit turkey and the fresh cut fries. Only quibble is they accept cash only and I only carry plastic (they have an ATM, but avoid the fee by bringing cash).
