We went to a funeral in Lutherville, and the family (who were all from out of town) had everyone back to a place called the New York Inn (which is not a place to stay, but just a place to have meetings apparently). When they gave directions to this place it was stressed that it was right NEXT TO the Charcoal Deli. So I guess it is locally famous.
Favorite Dish: The Baltimore City Paper has this review:
" What is it about the direct correlation between the deliciousness of pit beef and the seediness of its purveyor's surroundings? ... the north side has its own promisingly placed pit beef palace: the Charcoal Deli, adjacent to a pool hall, a used-car lot, and a Bedding Barn. The meat is good, juicy, and flavorful, and not at all overcooked. They'll make it rare if you ask: $4.20 for a regular sandwich and--caveat emptor--$7.50 for the colossal, which is more like three regulars. Quite a bargain.
"To go with, exemplary fresh-cut "beach fries" are de rigeur ($1.65 junior, $2.35 regular, $3.65 jumbo) and the ideal pit beef beverage--lemonade, squeezed on the spot--is on hand ($1.25 small, $2.25 large). Charcoal Deli advertises itself as "The Best Bottom Around." True enough, especially in greater Towson/Timonium/Cockeysville.
"For those of you missing the pit beef point (there are always a few stubborn iconoclasts), pit ham ($4.35 regular) and peppery pit-smoked turkey ($4.60 regular) are available. Our favorite alternative, however, is the O.C. burger ($4.75), eight ounces of freshly ground, flame-broiled-to-order beef with fried onions and provolone. Summer on the hoof."Related to:

We went from a funeral to a place to eat lunch afterwards with the family and this restaurant was used as a landmark to tell us when to turn. In spite of that, all of us that didin't actually know where the place was were on the wrong side of the street when we saw this place and had to go up and make a left turn and turn around.
Favorite Dish: Has ribs, broasted chicken, crabcakes and does takeout, too.
According to one review: "The decor at the comfy Stable isn't upscale -- wagon wheel chandeliers, ancient, scarred wooden booths -- but, if you're fussy about that kind of thing, the food will make you forget it. The waitresses are friendly and they make you feel right at home here"Related to:
