JPII Colombian Breeze Restaurant

348 Main St
Gaithersburg, 20878
Reviews:
Fabulous authentic food like in Bogota but outside at the tables it seemed more like being back in Cartagena! We were warmly greeted and quickly served even at the slow time in most places of 3:30. Ahhh! Aguila cerveza y empenadas crujientes! Cazuela de Frijoles! We went down the menu like a garden of delights and decided to take some super Tomales home as well. We were so full eating slowly that dessert will be reserved for our next visit. Hopefully with more special friends to share the experience The in store candy packs were real nice and bring back childhood memories but oh the coffee at the end was exceptional! Everyone was on their toes and attentive and the place though small inside was immaculate even the restroom ( there is a secret in there I will not divulge here). So with great food, friendly service and really reasonable prices this place is a gem in Gaithersburg Kentlands district well worth a 30 minute drive from Virginia any day. Walkable area with loads of free public parking in back.
Everybody else is leaving five star reviews, which I'd love to do as well, but I have no other Colombian restaurants or experience with Colombian cuisine to compare Colombian Breeze against. However, I'll say that as I rolled my happy, stuffed belly out the front door, I swore I'd be back for more. The restaurants itself is quaint, clean, and welcoming. They have a ginormous flat screen television hanging from one corner, which was on a soccer game while we were there. Lively music was playing in the background...not too loud and a great mood setter. We started with the mouth-watering empanadas. We got four good sized, crunchy (and not even the slightest bit greasy) on the outside pockets filled with perfectly hot and comforting potatoes and shredded beef on the inside. With some ice cold Aguila beer to wash it all down, we could have stopped there and been perfectly happy. However, we kept on going and ordered a chorizo salad and their "small" picada combination platter. I would never have thought to combine salad with chorizo sausage, but it was delicious. The "small" picada platter (and I keep emphasizing small because it was enormous) was delicious as well...more of an assortment of meats, potatoes, and slices of arepa (cornmeal and cheese bread). We seriously over-ordered and brought a lot home with us. Everything was very nicely prepared...everything fried was not greasy or heavy in the least, and everything else tasted super fresh. Our servers were very nice, explained the different ingredients and foods, and made sure we were happy with everything. We are SO glad we stopped in for lunch, and will most definitely go back to try some more of their menu.
This was the first time I had Colombian food, and I loved it! We sat outside which was very nice. Def a place I will come back to!

Guatemalteca Bakery

Reviews:
Great staff, they work hard and they have a great selection. I love their French bread. Tip: Go early in the morning! Bread is soft and fresh! Very delicious.
Love, love the bread here. My family is obsessed with their fresh bread. I always try to go before work to get their extra fresh bread as it comes out of the oven. Have to confess that at first I didn't know what to do as you walk in and see people with baskets and tongs. You must grab both items and fill up your basket with whatever bread you might desire. It's heaven for those that like variety and like to try new things. They have some extra yummy sweet and salty baked goods. At the counter they also have more expensive yummy things and some drinks.
the conchas are unbelievable here. i definitely recommend this place. very authentic.

Jazmin Cuisine

Reviews:
I had to drop two stars because it seems there have been some changes to the way the restaurant operates and I want them to notice this. If you look at the "Sides" section on the menu board at the restaurant, at the bottom you will see "Chips & Guac". Now, because that is listed together, you would assume that counts as one side right? Nope. Then you would think, "Okay, chips AND guac, so that's two sides right?" Nope. It doesn't count as a side towards a meal that comes with 2 sides. So then what are you left with? Rice, beans, fries and I think something else. Rice and beans don't count as one side, even though most places do! Trust me, I love this place for the food they make. However, it's a nuisance when the restaurant makes these rules, but doesn't even specify that on the menu! If they want it to be like that, make it CLEAR to your customers so that we don't end up looking like fools when we order because the person behind the counter can't completely understand what I am asking him/her. I still can't believe I can't order chips and guac as part of the 6pc wings with two sides (used to be 7pc). I mean, I get it. Chips & guac is pricier to make than the other foods. Fine. At least make it so that you have to pay a little extra or something! I don't want to order something I don't want, like the rice and beans. I would rather have chips and guac as my side. So instead of just "Wings w/ 2 sides $7.95", add another line saying Substitute side for extra $1.99. Simple. All in all, the food is great and the burritos are awesome. The small things like this are what holds this place back from being truly amazing. Rating will stay until this is fixed.
Updated review: I still like the food a lot, but it is such a hassle to eat there and place your order in person. It's a little mismanaged and ordering multiple entrées is unnecessarily complicated, I don't think they have a system for writing it down. I would give this place a higher rating if it was better managed.
Came here after reading several reviews and I left with a smile on my face and my tummy full. Good was made to order and stuff was super friendly. I will defiantly recommend this place to any person who like good Mexican food.

Don Jorge’s Mexican Restaurant

108 E Diamond Ave
Gaithersburg, 20877
Reviews:
I had dinner last night with friends and family here. The chips and salsa was great, light chips and warm tasty salsa - nice touch. My meal was good - not great, too salty. For the price I expected a little more care in preparation. The presentation was good and the service was excellent. Others in the group commented the meal was good but not quite worth the cost of the plates. I hope the chef takes note and makes the simple adjustments to make the dishes worth the price. The atmosphere is pleasant and clean.
Friendly staff. Awesome tortilla chips with even awesomer salsa when you get seated. And the best pollo asada I've had in 15 years.
We stumbled upon this place in historic Gaithersburg and were very pleased with the outcome. We went on a Saturday afternoon, before the evening rush. There was a steady flow of business: 5 other tables served during our meal. Started off with strawberry margarita with a nice kick. We shared the Yuca Con Chicharrón which was outstanding. The sauce was delish: the pork fell off the bone, and the yucca cooked perfectly. That alone as an entree would have been awesome. I had the chicken enchiladas which were tasty and filling. My wife had the Carne Asada. It had a real flavorful marinade and they actually cooked it to her specifications (medium). The rice that accompanied the steak was usually good (not just plain rice). The chips were good, not as salty as they can be at other restaurants, but the salsa was not so chunky. We were disappointed when they didn't refill the bowl. The staff was very friendly, the manager (possibly owner) came by to check on us. Overall a great Mexican experience. We will definitely be back and would recommend to others looking for a good Mexican meal.

Taco Bar

10003 Fields Rd

Reviews:
Below average food at low prices. Good portions, but little taste and almost no heat.
Very good food and very good prices. The burriot is only $4 and is excellent.
Ok so I have lived in Gaithersburg almost a year and I can't believe I waited so long to try Taco Bar! My main reason for not going was the fact that it was attached to a gas station AND sold beer/wine to go inside their restaurant. However, after babysitting all night and getting no sleep and barely anything to eat I wanted something quick, cheap, and delicious. I finally succumbed to the Taco Bar and it was DELICIOUS! I had the nachos- they deep fry the tortilla chips (I am not sure if this is because they are fresh or just their style) then they pour on the spiced beef, re-fried beans and melted cheese. I personally like my nachos to have some pickled jalapenos and black olives hence the 4 stars. Thought I would probably give them 4.5 b/c the fiancé loved his choriqueso platter. It was 4 tacos of spiced Mexican sausage and seasonings. He then put pico de gallo and another sauce from the side bar. These things were so packed full of food he had to eat half of the meat out of them before he could pick them up like a taco! They have some Mexican flavored sodas in bottles and coke products in cans and bottles. The place was very clean and I LOVE that everything is cooked to order and quick to deliver. Another reason I docked a star is because I would have liked a dessert other than flan. I will be back!

Brusters Real Ice Cream

18519 N Frederick Ave
Gaithersburg, 20879
Reviews:
Delicious ice cream....best of all banana split my fave!!!
I was up in King Farm (North Rockville) to pick up this girl for a date about a month ago. She wanted ice cream, and I recommended Bruster's. I had it once in southern MD, and it was really good. Also, when I lived in Birmingham, Alabama for a year in 2010 some people from the church I sometimes went to talked about the one at the bottom of the hill from the church and how good it was, but I had never tried it. On this warm June Saturday night, we got there, and the parking lot and place was packed. People were crowding the parking lot, which made it even more challenging to get a parking space. For a Saturday night in Gaithersburg, this was probably the biggest (& maybe best) hangout (Ok...j/k...maybe the Rio has a few more people & has some cooler spots). When we finally got to the counter to order, they were friendly. We enjoyed what I would argue is the best ice cream in the DC area (Unfortunately, there are no locations in Virginia, where I live). We were lucky enough to get one of just about two benches to sit and eat. I should've gotten napkins since it was melting rapidly on this hot night (Thank you climate change...haha...j/k...it's summer in DC), but luckily I have emergency napkins in the car. Unfortunately, the date itself wasn't too good, but these things happen.
Great price for the amount of ice cream you get! I've driven by Brusters in the past, but finally decided to stop by on a hot summer day (thanks in part to coupons that they always mail to my house). The coupon was a BOGO regular waffle cone, so the boyfriend and I ordered one each. A regular waffle cone fits three scoops. And these scoops are GIANT!! You can also order different flavor scoops, so I ordered the Graham Canyon (one of their summer specials) and a vanilla raspberry swirl with chocolate chips. SO GOOD. But also, so much ice cream!! I think I'd opt for a smaller size next time. I like how they have different flavors often; this gives me a good reason to check it out regularly, haha! Also, what I thought was pretty funny, was that they had a poster on the side of the building that was advertising one scoop cones to seniors only. What if *I* just want a single scoop? Does that make me a senior citizen? Does that imply that the older you get, the less ice cream you'll want? If so, then I hope I never grow old!

Jersey Mike’s Subs

Reviews:
Show these delis how to do it! I have eaten at Jersey Mikes since I was in high school back in Memphis and we would go weekly. I always got the club, my mom would get tuna and my dad would order the roast beef sandwich. Subway was soon forgotten. Well that location is gone, I live in MD and Jersey Mikes found its way back to me..... ...to a location just 5 minutes away from my job... Thank you God!! This is one chain that never disappoints. All of their sandwiches are stuffed and made to perfection and if you don't like it... you probably messed it up with your weird topping selections, lol... I kid, I kid (not really) I am in love with their cheese steaks... yes, all of them. Chicken, steak, chipotle, no chipotle... The thing that makes this place even greater than the great food and prices.... the staff is soooooo super friendly! The staff seem happy to be there and are very attentive. And they're mostly teenagers! (surprised) Maryland is really showing me up on my bad customer service claims. Good job!
I came here for the first time with some co-workers. We've been searching for a new deli place since our old favorite ran out of business. I didn't know what to get, so one of the employees suggested The Original Italian cold cut sub. They slice the meat fresh in front of you, so you know it's good. Then they ask you for what you want to put in it (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc). Be warned, when you say lettuce, they pile a mountain onto your sandwich. You can tell they try to have fun, though tossing Italian spices in the air, trying to be fancy. Along with the cold cut, I got some Mrs. Vicky's chips. I can't handle spicy, but my coworkers LOVE the jalapeno chips. So if you're a fan, Jersey Mike's has got 'em. So I got a regular, and I could not finish it for my life! It was pretty large, but I am a pretty small person. So I ate half, and saved the other half for lunch the next day. It was still just as good as the day before.
Hands down the best sub shop in 20878! I'm not sure why it took me so long to try this place, but it was my loss. The bread, meat, and toppings are simply better quality than the other chain sandwich shops. Subway, although cheaper, from a flavor perspective doesn't compete. Staff is friendly and the place is clean...a great lunch spot!

Starbucks

898 Muddy Branch Rd

I frequent Starbucks... A LOT! This location is in the same shopping center as the Veterinary Hospital I manage so I tend to go here multiple times a week... This is BY FAR my favorite location I've gone to. The staff is super friendly and they always remember what I order. This location feels like a local coffee shop vs a chain because there seems to be regulars who the staff always remembers and talks to! They also have a book you can write notes to the baristas (They're all fantastic!) It just feels more personal than most starbucks stores I have been in. They now have the order from the app feature and I tried it for the first time today.. what would you know, I was met at the door with my order when they saw me coming! I cannot say enough good things about this place and the baristas!!!
I really like this Starbucks. It has outdoor seating, the indoor looks very old fashioned and cozy, the place is warm and inviting and the baristas know what they are doing. I like sitting on their big sofas sometimes, but then I also like getting their side tables near a wall charging point so I can some work done. I have spent a lot of hours working here, while munching on my fav tomato cheese square (which they never run out of) and sipping on my fav hot or cold beverage. They will take my uber complicated orders in their stride and make sure I like what I get. What I also like it they have a little compliments book near the bar area so you can put in suggestions and comments. All the latest entries were full of holiday joy, it was awesome! :) I do feel that a lot of parents with kids seem to visit this place. Kids are cute, but then depending on my mood (and if I am trying to get work done), that can be borderline annoying, haha :) So overall, great Starbucks to hang out, get a drink and chill or get some serious work done!
Nothing like some good ol' coffee in the morning! This Starbucks location is clean, the service is quick and the baristas are awesome! My fave location in MD!!!
