The Local Bar & Grill has expanded its offerings and is now open for lunch every weekday starting at 11 a.m. with us coming in to see what’s new to the menu while enjoying a local venue in a quiet area outside of the hustle and bustle of the city to unwind.

In addition to the classic dishes the restaurant is known for, guests can try meals like the “Quickie”, the “Late Riser”, and the “Local Club”: a triple-decker of fresh deli meats and melted cheese served with potato chips and a dill pickle wedge.

The Quickie consists of five jumbo wings and house-made Mediterranean-inspired crispy onion rings. Aside from the Philly Cheese Steak, this dish is another popular dish at The Local. A number of sauces can be chosen from as well as mixed to your liking. My fancy is mixing hot and garlic together and my mouth is watering as I write this detail.

The Late Riser consists of three scrambled eggs, Applewood smoked bacon and a heaping-helping of house-made hash browns. The eggs are light and airy while the hash browns are dense. A small dash of salt and pepper makes this dish popular for any time of day.

From the existing menu, this dish is a favorite of the staff. The Fried Egg Burger is a 100% Angus beef 1/2 lb. patty with fried egg, bacon, caramelized onions, and American cheese served with fries. This burger is served according to your temperature preference for the patty and the egg is served in many ways. Once popped, the yoke dripped onto the plate. Adding a little salt to the yoke before dipping the fries into it is truly delightful.

Founded in 2010, The Local Bar and Grill was created as the ideal place for residents of College Park to meet their neighbors and relax and unwind. Located on College Park’s popular Edgewater Drive, The Local serves as a distinctly “un-corporate” fixture, offering fresh takes on food and drink favorites at reasonable prices.
