Unassuming yummy goodness!

Went for lunch while in town - and it was delicious! Don't mind that it is a little shack in a strip club parking lot - it just adds to the ambiance. The beef and pork BBQ sandwiches are awesome - the ribs pretty good. I could stop eating the fries! Enjoy and get lots of napkins :-)

My daughter found this place and now we try to stop either to or from DC. If you enjoy fine dining or new age fushion then don't stop at Chaps but if you are not offended by having to park in the lot of a "gentlemen's club" then by all means get on line. The sandwhiches are all overstuffed and... More

This is great food at a great price. The only problem is that the number of combinations is unlimited, so you have a hard time deciding. Make it simple and just get the beef. Or the beef and a burger. Or beef and sausage. Or beef, turkey, and sausage.... And the fresh cut fries are excellent as well. Don't leave... More

A Baltimore institute, Chap's is the place to get your fix for pit beef, pit ham, and all things meat. The place has been reviewed and featured on several Food Channel programs. On this visit I ordered the Guy's Triple D sandwich; pit beef, corned beef and sausage. The wife got pit beef and pit ham. Both sanwiches were huge.... More

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.
