Quest for Tater Tots

In search of tater tots to satisfy a craving, I followed the suggestion of Heather Saffield and wound up at Buffalo Wings and Beer on Tuesday night.

For the past few weeks I've been craving tater tots.

I tried unsuccessfully to bribe the cook at the bar where I work part-time to make me some from scratch. Then I tried to convince Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch Editor Jonathan Moynihan to break a lunch date with his wife so we could go to the new-ish Sonic down his way, also unsuccessfully. (Sorry Stephanie.)

With my plans thwated, I thought: what better way to satisfy a craving and get to know a new place in Glen Burnie? So I decided to stay in town and turned to my good friends on Facebook.

"Where can I get good tater tots in Glen Burnie? I want some but don't want to go all the way to Sonic in Edgewater ..." I wrote. Immediately, came to my rescue.

"Buffalo Wings and Beer apparently." she wrote. Followed by, "Funny a friend just posted about them having tater tots and that's how I knew. Just yesterday." And when Sharon Gilbert seconded Heather's suggestion, I knew I had to check them out—it was destiny.

After spending the afternoon at working with Severna Park Patch Editor Leslie Hunt, I decided it was time to treat myself to some tots.

And, boy, they sure didn't disappoint. I ordered a side of tater tots and, just my luck, the day's special was 50-cent wings so I got 10 of those.

I really liked the atmosphere of the place and you could tell many of the people who were there were regulars—not unlike most places in Glen Burnie.

And for those who drink, ask Annie to make you an Orange Cream Soda. I sat down and said, "Can you make me something with Pinnacle Whipped?" She added some orange soda and it tasted just like an orange creamsicle.

Thanks Heather and Sharon!

So tell me, where should I go next? Tell me in the comments.

fyi, there's a closer Sonic to Glen Burnie and that's the one on Liberty Road in Randallstown. I work in Owings Mills and have been to that one and its in a weird location (in a grocery store parking lot) but still Sonic!

Thanks Nicole. I've been to that one before, too, I think. It's next to a PNC bank right? That doesn't feel closer, though. I feel like both are far! haha.
