Box Hill Pizzeria looks like a typical pizzeria, but upon walking in you see it's packed with customers. Sure, there's a takeout counter on one side and a separate dining room on the other side. Like many pizzerias, if you want a drink refill, you take you cup up to the machine and refill it. What's not typical about this pizzeria is that I don't think anyone goes there for the pizza. Their specialty is crab cakes. In eastern Maryland, a crab cake place isn't especially uncommon, but I've yet to find one that has crab cakes as good as Box Hill. They give you a good sized portion served either baked or fried with almost no filler and huge pieces of lump crabmeat. They also have uncooked crab cakes available for takeout along with instructions to cook them at home and will even ship frozen ones.
To put into perspective how good their crab cakes are, I live 90 minutes away and I've done the 3 hour round trip to get them. I'm sure their other menu items that are more typical for a pizza place are good too, but I've never tried them. I heard about the crab cakes, tried them and haven't looked at the rest of the menu since!
