Description: A Collision of Tastes is No Accident Here! Since 1974, chef Ruben Evangelista and hostess wife, Kathy, have treated guests to delicious, high-quality food in a casual, colorful, cheerful atmosphere. Lista's is NOT a Mexican restaurant... We are a Modern American restaurant. Our diverse menu features many American and Southwest specialties for dining in or carry-out, but we serve what you've told us you enjoy the most. See our menu on our website, or visit our facebook page for weekly specials. We also cater 7 days and nights a week!

“We love Listas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

We've dined at Listas many times and are never disappointed. We love Kathy's crabcakes, and the specials are always worth a try. The service is very friendly and helpful. It's true, no high chairs, but, that said, our children have been warmly welcomed.

“Absolutely the best dining in MD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

We love the warm, feeling at Listas, like visiting a friend's home. We are always greeted with a hug from the owner, manager, etc. They are all friendly and fun to talk to. The food is always superb -- the specials every day are awesome. We especially love "Kathy's Salad," with steak, and Garlic Salmon dinner. We also love their cream of crab soup. We would recommend Lista's and advise that it's not strictly Mexican food -- but a Southwest menu that we love.
