Hyattsville becomes a mecca for fast-food alternatives
While city and county officials debate the fate of proposals for two new drive-through fast-food outlets, a recent study indicates that Hyattsville has become a destination for dine-in eateries. According to a recent poll of more than 30,000 Consumer Reports magazine readers, Hyattsville dining scores high in the category of “fast-casual” restaurants.
Fast-casual restaurants are a step up from fast food,” explained the survey report. “They usually serve higher-quality fare, charge higher menu prices, and focus more on a dine-in rather than drive-through experience.” Survey respondents rated each restaurant on the taste of its food.
Three of the highest-scoring fast-casual chains have restaurants within the Hyattsville city limits:
- Chipotle Mexican Grill, 5501 Baltimore Ave. #101
- Firehouse Subs
- Five Guys Burgers and Fries, 6451 America Blvd.
- Jason’s Deli
- Jersey Mike’s Subs
- Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, 5777 Baltimore Ave. #100
- McAlister’s Deli
- Panera Bread
