Editorial Review

Roland's of Chesapeake Station is more than just the main grocery in Chesapeake Beach. It also offers a changing menu of prepared dinner specials, which sometimes run out long before dinnertime. Recent selections have included roast beef with mashed potatoes and peas, ribs with macaroni and cheese and kale, corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots, and salmon cakes with french fries and green beans. There is fried chicken every day, along with rotisserie chicken, available cut into pieces and sold by the cut, such as thighs. The chicken is moist, juicy and flavorful. It tastes like chicken, which is the highest compliment in an age of reconstituted chicken nuggets. Don't miss it.
