A&W Pit Beef At Duvall's Marketplace in Jessup
All summer, Duvall's Marketplace in Jessup sold produce on Rte 175 in Jessup, and the A&W Pit Beef trailer has offered sandwiches to eat at some outdoor tables.
Don't think the cold will chase A&W away. They plan on serving up pit beef Monday to Saturday -- for lunch until about 4 pm. It's a handmade sandwich. The owner cuts up the meat and cooks it himself. He reheats servings for each sandwich.
It's not Pioneer's slices right off the roast, but that Woodlawn institution is one of the best sandwiches around. A&W's is a meaty, solid sandwich, almost a BBQ-style with shredded meat. Ask for light sauce because the beef stands on its own -- and stands up to the horseradish that I require on a pit beef sandwich.
At this time of year, Duvall's is shifting from vegetables to Christmas trees. So it's a fine outing to buy your tree and get a sandwich. It's also a great place for lunch if you're doing errands, going to Arundel Mills Mall or driving home from the airport.
Call ahead around Christmas week. The owner was talking about taking some time off around the holiday.
