If you like good down home style cooking, this is a great place to eat. The atmosphere is cozy, comfortable and unique with reminders of the horse racing industry of years past some of which took place in Bowie. The service was very good too.

Need a spot to talk business and close that deal? Rip's is the place! Excellent selection of lunch entrees that fill but don't stuff. And one of the few places around still offering that business lunch classic - the Monte Cristo sandwich!!

Basically a steakhouse with "country" atmosphere. I had the fried fish - a huge helping and my companion had a Chesapeake Burger - a burger topped with crab meat. Classic cheesecake for desert. Service was attentive and very friendly. Not Cheap Eats, but reasonable.
