    Voted 2nd Best Cheap Restaurant and 2nd Best Brunch by City Paper Readers for Best of Baltimore 2011

    Baltimore · September 26, 2011
  • Gerald S.

    Get the brussels sprouts. I promise you; they're the best you've ever had!

    The sweet potato fries were the highlight. Avoid all of the Mexican brunch options especially if you're used to authentic Mexican food...

    The BBQ burger is great. Get the peanut noodles.

    Jimmy S · March 14, 2010

    The brussel sprouts are unworldy grand.

    Great food. Service sucks balls unless you're a pretensious hipster (much like the staff.) be forewarned that they frown upon substitutions with their food. Fries, basic as they may be, are the shit!

    Check out Golden West Cafe in Hamden. Vegan fare and delicious

    Epic peanut noodles. Better yet, the mental oriental with the fried tofu. Love it forever.

    DIVINE apple, brie, and pesto sandwich. My advice is to invest in the peanut noodles

    Eva · March 11, 2010
  • Avelino M.

    try the cupcakes.

    Beware of all the hipsters!

    Order the tater tots and fried pickles to start, and then finish up your heart-healthy meal with the Frito Pie. This is some GOOD eating!

    Gerald Stacy · December 18, 2009
  • BaltimoreGal

    If you're a meat eater, get the bison short ribs. If not (and you like spicy) try the buffalo-style tofu. Always get the garlic fries and fried pickles. Read more

    They have the best music selection if you're a fan of metal.

    Lynn Morton · October 23, 2011
  • Robert T.

    Get the tots. You will not be disappointed. Also, the Pittsburgh steak salad is fantastic, even though it's named after a most unfortunate city.

    Baltimore's Best Bars 2012: You will find "excellent bands playing on a consistent basis at this Hampden bar-meets-music venue," as well as a "surprisingly well-stocked bar."

    The buffalo tofu serving is huge!

    steak and brussels sprouts. genius.

    A+ for the Aztec burrito!

    Tots are amazing!

    Baltimore's best breakfast on a weekend morning. If you dig blue corn (I'm a blue corn addict), try the Hopi cakes. Just do it! You'll thank me. Read more

    Melanie Hood-Wilson · July 26, 2011
  • Avelino M.

    It's New Mexican, not Mexican, and it's very authentic, (esp. the huevos rancheros and the Frito Pie), even if the green chile isn't hot enough. Hopi Cakes are spot on too.

    Avelino Maestas · July 23, 2011
  • Foodspotting

    Try the Apple, Brie and Pesto Sandwich

    A poor diet resulting in obesity is a major factor in the epidemic of non-communicable diseases, which disproportionately affects the poor.

  • Stacy A.

    The food is great, but be prepared to wait a long time for your food. I recommend calling ahead and getting the food to go, it's much faster and you don't have to worry about it coming out cold.

    Tell Thomas to wear his "fire pants".

    Breakfast quesadilla is always on point. Great burgers, too.

    Baltimore's Best Bars 2013: This Hampden bar bursts with character and personality unique to itself. Those in the mood for a beer and a massive burrito should visit immediately.

    Try the zucchini brie pancake topped with honey. It just became my Golden West Cafe favorite!

    This is an office hunger magazine model location!

    The Mental Oriental with peanut sauce and fried tofu is the type of salad you dream about. That is, if you happen to dream about salads.

    Karim Said · December 24, 2011
  • Donny V.

    Amazing seasonal beer selection, awesome wait staff, and the best brussel sprouts, breakfast quesadilla, and cupcakes around. Check out the weekend specials, too!

    The Elvis pancakes are fantastic. Just get one unless you're really hungry or sharing.

    Brussel sprouts appetizer and tres leches cake are both awesome. Huevos rancheros were quite disappointing - all spice, no flavor.

    Jessica Perry · December 1, 2010

    A funky, unique venue for food and entertainment! Golden West cares about the environment, too. Not only do they run on 100% clean power -- patrons that switch get a $35 gift card! Read more

    Spectacular breakfast burrito w green chile sauce, aztec burrito christmas style, or breakfast polenta with carne adovada. Classic New Mexican. Good beer on tap. Can get quite crowded - try the bar.
