My hubby and I found this place years ago during one of our son's regular visits to Hopkins, and we now make it a regular stop anytime we are in Bmore! No matter what time of day or whether we are hungry or not, we stop and get something to take back home- not just for us but friends and... More

This place was a little tricky to find and then "Oh, yes, just in the parking lot of that giant gentlemen's club. Grandma, keep your eyes closed until we get inside!" but very worth it. Beef was tender and delicious. Fries and slaw were also great. I can see why this place is so beloved. I want to go back... More

As always, my experience here recently was great! There was a line, like there always is at lunch time, but it moved quickly. We got our food shortly after we ordered, and everything was great. I got the Chap's Special with Macaroni Salad. I love their sandwiches, and I haven't had a side I didn't like. If you are coming... More

Visiting this area and went here because we saw it on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. This is a dive with excellent BBQ, huge menu, many different types of meats. We had sandwiches, a beef and a pulled pork. YUM! We will be returning for more.

I have been going to this place since I was a kid. I never thought I would have seen it on Triple D. Now, people need to understand the word "Dive" here... It's not the prettiest place, not in the best area... but they sure have some darn good pit beef... and AMAZING Gravy Fries! I could just go for... More

Delicious charcoal pit beef! Small place, but food is great! 3 of us had the beef sandwich, one had the turkey. We all enjoyed our sandwiches. The fries with gravy were great too. We live in PA so coming here is a treat for us. If there is a line of people out the door, don't be surprised and don't... More

When my boyfriend told me today that he was bringing supper home tonight from Baltimore, I hoped it was sandwiches from Chaps. When he came in carrying our food, there was no denying what be had for me by the smile on his face...Along with some delicious fries (rightly doused with vinegar), he unveiled my Raven Sub.

Not just pit beef but all kinds of meats done with a huge charcoal grill. Most people refer to this establishment commonly as, Chap's Pit Beef. Oh this visit I had the Chap's Special (Pit Beef, Ham and Corned Beef) with Provolone. Freaking awesome! The counter staff and grill staff are super friendly, and not intimidating for this first time... More
