Address: 6401 Woodvale Pl, Elkridge, Md.
25 miles outside of D.C., the carryout culture is preserved in Maryland’s Howard County by Simmie, a fast-talking, happy-go-lucky Korean OG. Although it's closer to Baltimore than D.C., Simmie’s has been providing D.C.-quality carryout for the Maryland suburbs’ residents, who’d otherwise be assed out. Their specialty is cheesesteaks, but Simmie claims the wings and mumbo sauce are just as popular. Their wings are smaller (they come in portions of 5, 7, and 10 instead of the typical 3, 4, and 5) and crispier than usual, with tons of flavor.
