Steve's 40 East Family Restaurant, located at 11411 Pulaski Highway, has been serving families in the Baltimore area for more than 26 years. The family-friendly restaurant is well known for their all-day breakfast. No matter if you're stopping in before work at 7 a.m. or heading over around closing time at 3 p.m. for an afternoon delight, you will be able to order light fluffy eggs, sizzling sausage and don't forget everyone's diner favorite - Belgian waffles. With its cozy booths and Tiffany lamps shining down to set the mood, it is no surprise the public keeps coming back for more. Owner Steve Tetteris and son and co-owner Tony Tetteris know exactly what customer service is all about. When I first stepped foot in the door, I was greeted with sounds of Frank Sinatra and posters of movie legends such as Marilyn Monroe and Paul Newman. Tony has been here for 26 years now and has always loved the 50s era, noted Meghan Tetteris, who has been the manager and one of the waitresses at Steve's for the last 15 years. Many of the posters you will see in here are from his own personal collection. Steve's even has its very own Coca-Cola room! Yes, that's right, you can take a journey back to the 50s era while enjoying a hot meal with the family. According to Tetteris, the Coca-Cola room is great for special occasions such as birthdays. When my co-worker and I headed over to the restaurant to sample some of their food specials, I expected to be greeted with samples off their breakfast menu, but little did I know my taste buds were in for a very mouthwatering surprise. Our waitress brought out a healthy-sized seafood platter, filled with breaded shrimp, plump crab cakes, steak fish and a shrimp salad melt that was on top of a lightly toasted English muffin and topped with yellow American cheese. Everyone thinks that breakfast food is our specialty, but its actually our crab cakes that are made with jumbo lump crab meat that attracts our large crowds, said Tetteris. Along with the seafood platter, we were served a side of potato salad, filled with chunks of tender potatoes, creamy macaroni salad and cole slaw - all three of which are made homemade everyday. If crab cakes and pasta salad isn't enough to get you excited, then maybe you need to come in and try one of Steve's three lunch specials that are under $7! This family restaurant is open seven days a week, meaning everyday you can stop in and grab a meal that will leave both your stomach and your wallet full. I had the privilege of trying Meghan's buffalo chicken wrap. Every bite was filled with pieces of juicy white chicken seasoned with their creamy and rich buffalo sauce all bundled inside of a delicious Old Bay wrap. All I can say is that you definitely get more than what you pay for here at Steve's Once I was done with my main course, I decided it was time for dessert! The dessert special of the day was warm apple pie. The crust was very moist and filled with large apple slices seasoned with just the right amount of cinnamon. No matter if you are heading over to satisfy your sweet tooth or leaving the office for a relaxing lunch break, you can enjoy playing KENO or just sitting down with the kids while they color and eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. We offer a children's menu where they can order anything from the classic PB&J to a juicy pork chop, said Tetteris. We also keep plenty of coloring books and crayons on hand so the kids have something fun to do. We even allow them to hang up their creations along our walls. Steve's is not only about family fun and great food but at this restaurant they are all about convenience with their very own ATM machine, which is very beneficial if you happen to run out of cash or just forgot to bring your money with you. This one-of-a-kind restaurant also supports our Baltimore Ravens football team by faithfully wearing their purple every Friday. Tetteris also noted they have high hopes of extending their hours for Friday and Saturday in the fall. This weekend, make sure you gather the family up and head on over to Steve's 40 East Family Restaurant for a fun time or give them a call at 410-335-2772 and see what specials are going on for that day!
