More on Chewy's BBQ.

By Tim Hill | Posted 7/29/2009

When Chewy's was on Charles Street, we liked their breakfast sandwiches enough to give them a Best of Baltimore award in 2007. So when we got news they moved near Sparrows Point, we decided to take a long lunch to investigate. Well, Chewy's still serves the big menu of breakfast and lunch items we've come to appreciate, but our lunch this day was just OK. First, the hamburger. We figured a Chewy burger ($5.95), thankfully smaller than the flagship 5-pound Fat Boy burger ($22.95), ought to contain a spark of its bigger brother's power, but despite fries and bacon on top, the meat was dry and thin. The pit turkey sandwich ($4.95), which we topped with Chewy's good, sweet barbecue sauce, was tasty, but compared to the overflowing pit beef sandwich featured on the menu, it was pretty wimpy. A 20-ounce caramel shake ($3.50) erased some of our disappointment, and the lunch experience itself was enjoyable: Chewy's is housed inside Micky's, an establishment that conveniently both cashes paychecks and sells liquor, and features a row of cool old arcade games, including a puck bowling machine.
