|Tamales from R&R|
You can go for the frisson of eating in gas station on U.S. 1 at Rte 175. But you should really drive to Jessup because they serve incredibly flavorful food up and down their menu.
I have raved about tacos, but I noticed tamales on my last visit. Tamales are a benchmark dish for Mrs. HowChow who imprinted on rich vegetarian versions in a Los Angeles farmers market. It's always a big deal when she thinks any tamales approach that grade.

These will make a perfectly fine lunch. But I actually recommend them as takeout. Your taco is best eaten right away, either on one of the R&R stools or in the front seat of your car. But you buy the tamales straight from the refrigerator. Tell them that you don't want them reheated. Then microwave them yourself. They'll last several days in your fridge, and three tamales and the sauce made lunch for two.
I can't recommend R&R's enough. It has been more than five years since Alberto Flores turned me on to the Mexican takeout in the Shell gas station. I've eaten breakfast. I have eaten fish. I have burned my tongue on lamb soup and on cochinita pibil. I have cooled my mouth with agua frescas and horchata. Check out all my R&R posts, and go see how much fun you can have for $10.
