Ann's Dari-Creme



Upon looking at our sidebar of links, I saw on Holly Eats' hot dog list that there was a place nearby here in Glen Burnie, Ann's Dairy-Creme! I had to go.
Ann's is a little shop with a counter on the side of Richie Highway open late. Their specialty - a footlong hot dog, fried, served on a hoagie roll with chili, mustard and onion. I spoke with the gals working there, and their dogs don't rip in the fryer- they just darken and wrinkle when cooked. I had some tasty fries there as well as a banana milk shake.

I've been to Ann's many, many times. I always get the "Double Dog", that's two footlongs on a single roll, and a "Chocolate-Cherry-Mix" shake, which is a unique blend of, well, chocolate and cherry. Try it for yourself. Ever since the closing of Elkridge, Maryland's "Dog House", Ann's is the place!

I'm visiting from LA where Pink's and Skooby's are the dogs of renown. The shuttle driver at the BWI Hyatt told me I had to try Ann's and when I walked in the door, I knew I had found something very special. The hoagie bun is light and fresh, the dog exquisite and the chili remniscient of what another LA icon, Tommy's, uses on their burgers. The flavors of Ann's dog blend together so well, I found myself laughing aloud at my good fortune to find this gem. Five Stars/World Class Dog. Girls working the counter were great.

I grew up eating at Ann's ALL the time!! The food is just AWESOME!! I always get a footlong double dog with chili & cheese. Best way to eat it. I now live out of town and only get to have one once a year when I go back to the area on business or to visit. I can honesty say that this is one hotdog that I still miss and have NEVER found one like it!!! Must try!!

Let me first say that I grew up on this place, as well as did my family. The gals that work there have always been great with memories like elephants. With that said, I must say that I recently stopped in to pick up dinner for the family, and was very surprised at what I found when I returned home with the dinner that I was sooo looking forward to. The foot longs were more bread than anything, I mean, I remember when two hands, and about 20 napkins were required to indulge in this masterpiece. I was very disappointed to see that they had been very...very...very shy with the toppings. I also ordered a cheeseburger sub, I can remember the patties being hefty...not this go round, I think McDonalds plain hamburger patty would sadly put it to shame. Perhaps the economy has reached it's paws to the once haven on Earth. However Ann's has been able to survive many hard times (i.e Marley Mall), and I think it's healthy portions have played a major part in it's exsitance to this day, but I think that management may want to consider saving future customers rather than maybe saving a few dollars on the toppings. I'm sorry to offend anyone, but I would rather see that the truth is told and maybe have the potential problem fixed rather than to watch a landmark fade away for the sake of a few dollars. I think people would rather pay a little more to help out in rough times than to become discouraged and not return. Thanks for reading and I hope that perhaps the right people will see this.

Very Disappointing...my husband and I wanted to try something different for dinner one night. He ran out to Ann's and returned home with two greasy bags. First off, if you are looking for a real cheesesteak...forget it!! They use Steak ummms!!!! That's emergency food in my house. Kinda like Ramen noodles. Secondly, the hotdogs are mostly bread and are not even real beef. Lastly, their food is relatively tasteless despite all of the toppings and chili they pile on top. The only decent tasting thing is the milkshakes. I dont understand the big fuss. I know the place is historical, but it should have been plowed down when the mall was built. I dont understand the big fuss. The food is disgusting.

Make sure your waiter washes her hands if she handles both food and cash. On May 22, 2011 the lady at the register counted out dollars for lots of customers and, without putting on even one plastic glove, turned around and three six to eight steaks and burgers on the grill from a meat drawer. Huh? Do we really need to tell her that at 9pm at night that that is just not sanitary?
