Calling all food fanatics – this one’s for you! One of the most common things to consider when booking a family vacation is what you’re going to eat and where. Although we do have the Campfire Canteen on-site – where campers can choose from a variety of tasty treats such as burgers, nachos, chicken tenders, ice cream, and more – we understand the need to get out and explore beautiful Maryland! Keep reading for 5 local restaurants to check out during your next trip to Jellystone Park™.

Tony’s Pizza

Since 1985, Tony and his team have been delivering (no pun intended) the best pizza in western Maryland. Known for his Naples, Italy roots, Tony Scotto di Carlo creates authentic and delicious pies that locals and visitors alike rave about. How do you like your pie? Meat lovers, all veggie, or combo?

Desert Rose Café

Looking for a great lunch spot with tasty homemade sandwiches, soups, salads, and sweat treats? Look no further! Desert Rose Café is a locally run operation which has grown in popularity over the last 10 years and is a must-visit. We recommend the Dave’s Delight sandwich with cheddar cheese, spinach, tomato, cucumber, avocado, and balsamic vinaigrette, served on grilled ciabatta.

Krumpe’s Do-Nut

Spanning several generations, Krumpe’s Do-Nuts is a family-run business delivering the best do-nuts and service around. Made from the freshest ingredients, you’ll be savoring every bite of these doughy delights.

Primanti Brothers

From humble sandwich cart during the Great Depression to a bustling business with multiple locations throughout Pittsburgh and now Maryland, Primanti Brothers is surely not to be missed. When there, try their Almost Famous sandwich stacked with beef, turkey, or pork, cheese, tart coleslaw, and crispy fries, served on Italian bread. YUM!

Mission BBQ

Not only does this spot have great BBQ made from quality ingredients, it is also passionate about running a business with meaning and purpose. Their goal is to honor and celebrate our nation’s heroes through fundraising and giving back. They work with national organizations including USO, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and Wreaths Across America. Ask how you can get involved during your next visit to Mission BBQ!
