The Washington Post has a piece introducing the cluster of bargain restaurants on a section of Baltimore Avenue in Beltsville as follows:
For nearly three years, the $20 Diner has been roaming the metro area in search of bargain vittles. But since August, I’ve been keeping an eye out for destinations where diners can sample a variety of flavors in one centralized area. I’ve considered strip centers, small towns and destinations familiar to even casual food scouts. But none of them surprised me — and delighted me — as much as the restaurants along Baltimore Avenue in Beltsville, which has been a way station for travelers seeking sustenance since the late 1700s.
The cluster is about 11 miles, or 17 minutes from Collington. Just up the Beltway, and get off at US 1 North towards Baltimore.
Here is the full article, listing about ten restaurants, from Korean to Peruvian and Swahali to Greek, and from Tex-Mex to Pub. The article includes map links, and links to the restaurants’ website.
