Chaps Pit Beef
This Baltimore institution whips up the area’s best pit beef sandwiches, made of thinly sliced rare roast beef that’s been cooked quickly at a high temperature. According to the owner, the key to good pit beef is serving up a lot of it, so that the slices never have time to dry. Sandwiches come with just meat, on a soft and squishy bun, and you should dress them up with an array of sauces (go with the classic tiger sauce, a horseradish/mayo combo), sliced onions, and pickles. This is a great spot for lunch, but be prepared to wait in line.
