Best Soul Food Restaurant

Log Cabin Restaurant

8126 Washington Blvd., Jessup, (410) 799-9874

Posted 9/15/1999

Don't even think of visiting Log Cabin on a weekend, a national holiday, or much past 5 P.M., because Elizabeth Garrett, Log Cabin's octogenarian proprietor and occasional chef, believes that even people who run restaurants should have time with their families. Now, if you can deal with Miss Elizabeth's schedule, take a drive down to Jessup. Once there you can feast on a Southern smorgasbord of chitlins, hog maws, and pig's feet with all the trimmings. You'll never eat a lighter, moister fried catfish. Serious portions of barbecued ribs, Salisbury steak, lake trout, or breaded veal cutlet will fill your belly without breaking your piggy bank--even the T-bone steak dinner will only set you back $7.50. And, oh, the side dishes: macaroni and cheese you'll dream about, flavorful greens, sweets so candied your teeth will ache, a slab of corn bread fresh from the oven. If you have any room left after your meal, order the lemon meringue pie, or fresh apple or peach cobbler. Log Cabin offers soul food as it should be enjoyed--easy and slow, as if you have all the time in the world.
