No. 48 -- Joe Squared( Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun / May 9, 2006 )
Joe Squared is known for its big, square, delicious pizzas. But the reason it's on this list is because it offers live music daily, for free. And on Tuesdays, it offers a relentless break-dance party. A better slogan might be: come for the pizza, stay for the free band. This Station North mainstay is just down the street from Windup Space and Club Charles, and might be the tastiest place to grab your first bite of the night. -- Erik Maza
