On Main Street in Annapolis, just up from the harbor, is Chick & Ruth's Delly. It never disappoints even when you have to wait because it is fairly cramped inside but with the fun atmosphere and non-stop entertainment, you hardly notice. Uncle Teddy comes around to visit and serve, check on your meals, and of course, do the most mind-blowing magic tricks. The food is amazing, large portions, fabulous deli pickles to munch on, and the shakes are out of this world huge!! You have to see them to believe them! We were lucky enough to be there during an "encore" of the Pledge of Allegiance and it really does make you happy to participate with your fellow diners and American citizens. We need more moments in our lives like saying the Pledge together.
This place never disappoints and I cannot imagine eating anywhere else in downtown Annapolis.
