The World's Best Snickerdoodles in the DMV area hands down point Blank. I've tried the the ones at Forestville mall and is no competition at all
Wifey had me stop up Iverson to get 1/2 lb of snicker doodles. Man, I ate 3 before & even made it back to the car. Good luck on any making it home. #bloodsugargonnabe2000 #dontgivemenolipwoman #hillcrestheights #24thavecrew
Literally the B E S T snicker doodles you will EVER eat!! All of their cookies are delicious, but the snicker doodle seems to be the crowd favorite, and rightfully so. The location isn't the best, but well worth it.

Topolino An Italian Bistro

6320 Old Branch Ave
Temple Hills, 20748
Reviews:
Excellent pizza. One of the best I've had. Thanks so much. Will be back.
My hubby and I love Topolino. We go maybe every other month or so for the weekday lunch buffet (only $10!) and the old-world style decor. I like that there is salad and vegetarian choices and hubby likes the meatballs, pizza, chicken and cake! I have also ordered off the menu and was pleased with my dishes. We recommend. Sit by the fireplace in the winter - it feels divine! Note: I deducted one star only because some times the mussels (among other things) have been out too long and are a little rubbery. If you get them when they first put them out - delicious!
I was skeptical of the all you can eat buffet. When I think Italian food, I don't think of buffets. I was also skeptical of the location. I read Temple Hills and was asked my husband if he was nuts. Got there about 4:40 and found out dinner didn't start til 5. Had to wait a bit, but our waiter made sure we got first crack at it (that was completely awesome of him and entitled him to a larger tip). I was skeptical of the amount of options available, until I saw the area. There was a really good variety around a bunch of proteins. Almost everything was delicious. The only real disappointing thing was the ziti that looked kind of like mac and cheese. Meatballs tasted a bit funny, but I still ate far too many of them. I have only been here once, but I will be back again. Next time I plan on trying something other than the buffet. Saw several plates of what other people ordered and I really want to try the chicken parm or alfredo now.

100 Plus Latino Restaurant

5824 Allentown Way
Temple Hills, 20748
Reviews:
Ok so we walk in at 7:30 on a thursday night. Lights were very dim and the waitress was drinking and dancing.the music was so loud we could barely hear her.Also we didnt like the idea of an intoxcicated waitress after a hard day at work. The prices per plate were fairly expensive for a whole in the wall restaurant and it smelled like a nail salon which I thought was next door. Im not sure how the food tasted because we left early since our waitress disapeared. I dont recomend this place.
I cant believe I have lived near this gem for 5 years and have never tried it! I am SOOO glad I did! I always see my fellow Latin brothers & sisters going into this place while I'm pumping gas. I knew it had to be a reason so many people flock here! THE FOOD IS TO DIE FOR! Mother of gawd I haven't had fajitas this good in FOREVER! For 13$ you get shrimp, chicken, and beef fajitas. They come out sizzling along with, peppers, onions, rice, guacamole, and beans! I usually don't eat much of the beans but I DESTROYED theirs lol! I think I'm going to try literally everything on the menu lol! They also have a full bar, pool table, and a juke box filled with great Latin music. Cool vibe and great food! The decor isn't the greatest but who cares when your food is this good lol! I will definitely be returning in the near future!
This spot is a well kept secret. All of their food is amazing and there is never a long line. My favorite is the pulled chicken and shrimp/salmon. This place is great for kids and adults. They have a full bar and tv's to watch the game

IHOP

Reviews:
After the Wizards game, we headed home, forgetting that restaurants would be closing early in our neck of the woods - because it was Sunday! We ended up at IHOP. Open 24 hours. Fast service. Friendly wait staff. Satisfying food. It was close to 10pm when we arrived. When we pulled in the lot, we thought that the place was closed. We entered and found that there was one other couple dining in. We were greeted and seated immediately. My new go-to place in my 'hood for a late night meal.
Very nice wait person. Very nice manager. Very communicative when they ran out of salad ingredients and substituted other items. This is a nice ihop. It is a little cold/drafty though, my only complaint. Food was good. If you want pancakes brought out last, remember to tell them or they will bring with meal.
This Ihop is small with limited parking. However, the service (we had a server named Thomas) was amazing! He was attentive and extremely diligent about obtaining all items requested in a timely fashion. The food was also delicious! I only rate it three stars because of the size and parking. Great low-key place!

New to the area and was starving after moving all day; they are the closest Chinese restaurant that seem to deliver. I order wings with fried rice and my husband ordered a steak and cheese. Overall the food was Great! And they even have us fortune cookies YUMMY!
Based on a previous review I saw here on yelp, I decided to not order chicken (anything, see photo uploaded by another user). I however was impressed by some of the reviews. Open until 10 pm. Impressive. I stopped by after 830 pm for dinner. Lonely at this hour. There's a 15% "Dine In Fee", your notified though two signs posted in the rather nice dining area. Beautiful Chinese paintings on the walls and comfortable booths. The shrimp lo mein (soft noodles) wasn't on the impressive combination option (comes with rice, soup, and an egg roll). But I knew that's what I wanted so I orders shrimp lo mien. It's good! Not too oily like another places. The food was even better with the chili pepper oil! (I like it spicier when it comes to Chinese). I'll be back...
I've been coming here for 6 months now. Food is good, nice & hot with large portions. I have found that 1st you need to treat people how you want to be treated.

Reviews:
I usually walk in but decided to call for delivery this time. I don't know if they had a young girl answering the phone but she was so rude. I was actually disappointed and appealed considering how nice they are normally. Overall, I like their food and before tonight their customer service. The girl couldn't hear me so I found myself screaming in the phone and after each item she kept screaming "is that it?" I'm not unfamiliar with the busyness of any carry out on a Saturday night but found this one extremely disturbing.

Bojangles

3727 Branch Ave
Temple Hills, 20748
Reviews:
I went to school and NC and I am familiar with Bojangles and its standards which I love. Their chicken should be fresh, crispy, seasoned and amazing. The service should be quick and courteous and most of all the fries should be hot crispy and seasoned. The key word being SHOULD. Despite this place being in the "hood" they should not be exempt from standards, which they feel they are. I am pregnant, so I was craving Bojangles. I drove from about 15 mins past 3 other chicken spots to get here and was thoroughly disappointed. First, the person on at the drivethrough window acts as if you are interrupting her conversation by needing to place your order. When you pull up the first thing she says is "Hold On". It takes about 5 mins for her to come back to the speaker and does not give a care about what you could be talking about. I got a tailgate special and asked for wings and legs only, when they told me they did not have anymore wings. REALLY? OK, get to the window, the girl is yelling at the staff and I hear several other staff members yelling back at her as if a fight were to ensue, FOREAL! She takes my payment and hands me the box all while continuing this scream fest. I has to ask loudly for hot sauce when she returned to the window. Her response? "We ain't got none" ok I said BBQ sauce? We ain't got that either. Okay Im thinking, she's playing. She's standing there stone cold face, when I realized she was serious. How do you have a chicken joint with no hot sauce? You sell chicken tenders with no BBQ sauce? All in all, the fries were cold, soggy and saturated in seasoning, so much so they were uneatable. The chicken tasted reheated and the sides were also cold and gross. The whole meal went in the trash, except for a piece of chicken I managed to salvage for the dog. $25 down the drain. IF there a Mr. Bojangle, this establishment should make him roll over in his grave. Unless you like a ghetto hot mess of the spectacle, nasty food and waiting forever, do yourself a favor. STAY HOME!
Solid solid choice. Southern spicy chicken, delicious! Sometimes have great specials too. The tailgate chicken special is solid, can easily feed 3-4 adults. The mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy are amazing. Get extra gravy, goes great with the chicken and biscuits. The other side others are great as well. The sweet tea is awesome!! Fresh chicken takes 13 minutes to make, worth the wait! Recommended!!
Bojangles is a fast food chain known for it's fried chicken and biscuits. The chicken is crispy but not popeyes crispy and seasoned well. The biscuit is better than popeyes, its bigger fluffier and lightly buttered. The service here was okay however the surrounding area is not the greatest. For lunch I had the two piece dark with a side of dirty rice, biscuit, and sweet tea( too sweet IMO however most sweet tea is too sweet for me).

Been going to Mamma Lucia since I can remember. This location is probably the best left since the one in PG Plaza closed down like 30 years ago. I don't get too much, a few slices here and there and occasionally some baked ziti. Never had an issue with food or customer service.

A real surprise located right on Allentown Road. When you are headed home, it is the perfect stop for some well priced and good tasting seafood. Whiting sandwich is like $5. But, my fav is the shrimp, whiting, scallops, and western fries.

51 Club

3207 Naylor Rd
Temple Hills, 20748
Reviews:
Well, since I live in the vicinity, I guess it's my turn. 51 is the slum of slums. I'm sorry. It's just one of the shadiest liquor stores within a 3 mi. radius of Naylor rd./Branch ave. If I didn't live so close to or pass by it everyday. I would say avoid it at all costs. But, it is a popular destination for all types of interesting and questionable characters. There's always bums hanging around it. They are always pretty busy. People can get their drink, lotto and lasciviousness on. They have a fine selection of tastes and spirits. It's the area, and their clientele that scares you off. I have never had any problem patronizing it. You go in, get your goods and get out. Follow those 3 steps and you're welcome.
I used to live in the apartments right above 51. This was the late 80-92. 51 always had bums outside, I was a kid, I was never allowed to go there at night though. I missed the old neighborhood, we had some great times in the woods behind the apartments. The 1 thing I can remember they had some good hot foods on Fridays and Saturday nights. My mom would let us get a platter on the Saturday nights sometimes. I don't recall ever being afraid to go down there, I was about 10yrs old. I do know it was the spot to go to after the Liquor Stores closed in DC
One night I was coming back from Wednesday night at church. Hope of the station and taken a cab. I stop by here to break a $20. I walk in every body turn around. Man I got my money and a fruit drink and got out of there. I mean the wrong place. I wood never go there again. Don't go here. It's not worth it.
