I am amazed to see that so many people read my blog from Maryland. I have received letters from some asking me about Havre de Grace and where is the best place to get lunch. Well if anyone knows me, knows I love to eat. So I introduce you to “Dishin’ Up Havre de Grace”. This is a series showing you my little town. Where is the best place to go? The best place to grab a bite? Stick around and I will show you. If this goes well I will include Cecil County and some surrounding states.
Today I am going to talk about pit beef. If you have never had pit beef, well, you are missing out on a treat. It is just what it sounds like. Succulent beef slow roasted over a pit. I visited Fast Eddie’s Pit Beef a lot when it was originally in Aberdeen and then it burned down. I was really sad because I loved going over there and getting a platter, then heading to Rita’s for some custard.
So, when they opened up again and this time in Havre de Grace, I was a happy camper. I had already been twice and this time was my lunch before heading to Sweet Devotions. I ordered a pit beef sandwich, rare, curly fries, and potato salad. Normally I eat my pit beef medium well but at Fast Eddie’s it is usually done when you ask like it for that, so I ask for rare. There is enough meat on one sandwich for two, but of course I don’t share. So here is my sandwich:
And dressed up like I like it. Onions and BBQ sauce:
Looks yummy, uh? I will admit I was a little aggravated this time. The juices had soaked part of the bread and it caused half my sandwich bread to be a useless blob. So I had to hack it up to get a good firm serving. I was aggravated but not defeated, after all that is why knives and forks were invented. Here is my whole platter:
I was a little disappointed they changed their potato salad. I loved their old way and actually raved about it on Yelp. All in all, it is a fantastic lunch for under 15.00. It is really good and great for when you need to be quick.
Fast Eddie’s also provides Platters and Catering On Site.
