I’m Feeling Crabby

The GF is a B-more girl through and through, and there is nothing that a true Marylander loves more during the summer months than eating some of the Chesapeake Bay’s finest crabs. Well with all of my travel this summer (mostly for work) I had not had the opportunity to partake in one of my favorite summer past times- eating MD crabs. Well this past weekend, the GF satisfied her crab jones by going to Bills Terrace Inn in Essex, MD. This place is a serious hole in the wall, but let me tell you, the crabs come close to a religious experience. Seriously, I’m catching feelings right now as I re-live the nirvana that is Mr. Bills!

I made a point of reviewing the top list of all of MD’s “Best” Crabs last year and made my way through the majority of the list; however Mr. Bills is consistent, the crabs are meaty and sweet, and you forget how much a dump the restaurant is as soon as that tray of crabs is bought to your table. Another one of my favs for Mr. Bills is their steamed shrimp that are paired with onion, and I’m convinced they cook the shrimp in beer.

If your summer travels bring you anywhere near b-more, make a pit-stop in Essex and check out Mr. Bills.
