Nestled off of a tiny road right near the border of Annapolis and the rest of Anne Arundel County sits a gem of a bar. Heroes Pub is a “fireman & policeman” bar, where helmets and patches from precincts and ladder companies cover the wall. Heroes is beloved by locals and it pairs friendly service with delicious bar food.
Now lets be upfront, Heroes is not going to be confused with some fancy bar that serves high-end food. What Heroes is, is a classic local watering hole where you can find solid food at a decent price. I’ve visited Heroes twice before I posted this review and both times I cleaned my plate off the food was so good.
Heroes is known for its cheese steaks so I happily ordered one. The steak comes on a plain sub roll with standard steak meat, provolone cheese, tomatoes, and mayo. The cheese steak is delicious but unspectacular, it’s not going to blow your mind with some brilliant combination of cheese and gourmet meats. But it does do the job, which is not what all restaurants can say about their cheese steaks.
Next on the docket was the chicken chesapeake sandwich which is a grilled chicken breast topped with tasty crab dip and cheddar cheese. Crab dip is the ultimate condiment and I endorse its usage on anything. The creaminess of the dip and the richness of the crab meat pairs perfectly with the lean flavor of the chicken breast. All together it’s a solid sandwich.
Heroes Pub is not a place you have to visit, but it does the trick.
Overall Rating: B, Solid Bar Food and Solid Service.
