Nestled in Charles County, Waldorf sits just 20 miles south-southeast of the nation’s capital. It’s 68,000 residents enjoy that certain style of east coast living — benefiting from urban amenities, while surrounded by farms and history. Waldorf is within reach of the Shlagel strawberry farm and two Middleton farms, and it basks in hot, humid summers and mild winters. But this neighborhood also curates a comparable culinary scene to the capital without the loudness and large crowds. Overall, it provides the feel of a small town with the advantages of a small city.

Waldorf may be a little off the map from the nation's capital and moderately diverse, but all kinds of cuisine is available. Peruse the local places off of the 301 Freeway for anything that suits your mood. Craving perfectly seasoned chicken? Waku Chicken serves that and more with a Peruvian kick. Order a quarter of a bird with tasty sides and complementary sauces while the owner chats you up about anything and everything. Make sure to try the gyros and other Peruvian specialities — they're just as good as the chicken.
Don't let Simply Good's modest decor and menu full of variety (from grilled cheese to kimchi, and much more) throw you. The owner attentively helps you decide between American, Korean or a mix of both. Locals rave over this establishment's simple fried chicken but come here for the bulgogi and spring rolls.
Pick up Middle Eastern kabobs at Silver Skewers, try an Italian/Greek flavor-fused pie at Napoli Pizzeria, or opt for classic Southern barbecue at Lefty's Barbecue Unlimited. Waldorf does casual dining well, especially when you drop in to the Silver Diner for unexpected treats, such as alcoholic milkshakes, bison burgers and stuffed banana French toast. A health-conscious vibe brings many vegetarian choices to the menu, as well as nitrate-free bacon and grass-fed beef.

Come for strong drinks, classic Irish pub food and surprisingly tasty cake balls for dessert. Bartenders love to get to know patrons and mix up a special cocktail per each individual's request. Frequent Babes Boys Tavern just a few times, and expect everyone to know your name and the wings you want to order. This is the place to go when you want to throw back a few beers and procure random conversation. Locals come to Kobe Bar and Grill for great rolls, but the secret draw lies in the cocktail special. Just $5 gets you any of the classics that sound like a match for your sashimi — any day of the week. Kobe makes a great place to start the night. Relaxed and simple joints like these characterize Waldorf, so if you're looking to dance or see live music, head to nearby West Plains or north towards the capital.
