In the ongoing COVID-19 shut-down saga, I am now on week six of Restaurant Revisits. I am checking in with two more of my favorite restaurants from my articles over the past year. I am providing links to the original articles, and letting you know their current status. In addition, I am giving links to my recent articles with by-county spreadsheets of open (for carryout, curbside, and/or delivery) restaurants.

Bollywood Masala

120 Rosewick Road

LaPlata, MD


Bollywood Masala continues to be one of my favorites. The authentic Indian food is amazing. They also offer delicious Indian street food. The food really is a treat! If you have not tried Indian cuisine before, you need to ask for Raj. Raj will gladly give you guidance on menu items. They have maintained their regular hours at their restaurant for pickup.

Owners Raj and Punita recently started delivering food orders to local communities that are not serviced by delivery services. This is a great idea because, with social distancing, it keeps people close to home. Their next community deliveries are coming up this week:

– Wednesday 05/20 – Hunters Brooke (off 225/Hawthorne Road, Indian Head)-5:00 pm at the pool house

– Thursday 05/21 – Hunter Springs (off 344/Chicamuxen Road, Indian Head)-5:00pm at the community entrance

– Friday 05/29- Walmart in King George, VA-5:00pm in the parking lot

If you are interested in a dinner pickup at these locations, call in the order by 3:00pm on the delivery days. Three easy steps…order, pay over the phone, pickup your order (contactless).

Is your community is interested in having a delivery set up? Just call or send a message to Bollywood Masala, and they will bring dinner to you!

Bollywood Masala’s hours are Monday through Thursday 11:00am – 9:00pm, Friday 11:00am – 9:30pm, Saturday 11:30am – 9:30pm, and Sunday 11:30am – 9:00pm.

Linda’s Café

21779 Tulagi Place

Lexington Park, MD


One of my favorites for homecooked, hearty, tasty food is Linda’s Café in Lexington Park. Linda’s is open, offering curbside service, and serving their tasty breakfast and lunch. And if you are lucky; she will be there. I love chatting with Linda! The Creamed Chipped Beef and Club Sandwich are a couple of my favorites. Linda has been cooking up greatness for over 30 years.

They have daily specials and recently sold Veggie and/or Fruit Boxes full of fresh produce. Check these out on the Facebook page.

In addition to picking up orders at the restaurant, Linda also has a food truck. Linda’s on the Go prepares the most delicious, upscale, wonderful food. Check out the Facebook page daily for their location.

Linda’s Café hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm.
