Love to stop by and have lunch at Tom & Rays, a throwback to the 1950's, good quality comfort food, freshly prepared.

This place had the best fried chicken, each serving was made to order so you had to wait 15 -20 minutes for it when you requested it. Large portions and 1-2 homemade desert options daily. Sadly, they went out of business.

Tom and Rays went out of business, but The Hornets Nest is a good alternative. There is a good variety of sandwiches and burgers and salads. It is one of the few places in Damascus where you can get a beer.

We've lived here for over 40 years and this is a favorite of 'old timers'. It would remind you of an old time local cafe/restaurant complete with a counter and booths. The prices have gone up in recent years but, in my mind, it has...More
