Mykonos Grill Near Eaves Rockville: Don't Miss the Retsina Wine

You can also dive right into dinner, perhaps the grilled chicken breast in lemon sauce, the marinated lamb chops, or the fried cod served with potato garlic dip. If you're a fan of seafood, try the sauteed shrimp with pine nuts and feta. The exotic dishes all await just a short trip away from Eaves Rockville.

Looking for a fun and affordable place to grab a bite and relax with friends? Consider a trip to Hard Times Cafe. Not far from Eaves Rockville, Hard Times Cafe has been open in Rockville since 1984, and for all these years it's served great food in a casual environment.

While Hard Times Cafe serves plenty of great options, the crux of the menu is four types of chili. Choose between the Texas style, with its authentic, early 20th century recipe, the Terlingua Red, which offers a deep red color and a spicier flavor, the Cincinnati, made with finely ground beef, cinnamon and a blend of sweeter spices, and the Veggie, made with soy flakes, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, peanuts, and jalapenos in a tomato base for a clever and unique flavor. Customers like Cincinatti style most, but you can't go wrong with any option.
