Restaurant Weeks Heading into Its Last Few Days

- HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Hagerstown Restaurant Week wraps up this Saturday, August 16.

Many participating restaurants said this year is better than last. Restaurant Weeks is a nationwide event with 15 different restaurants are taking part in Washington County this year.

E Jay Zuspan III, owner of 28 South, said he's noticed more people than before. 

"I think it's doing great, we've seen maybe ten times more amount from last year, so this year's been really great," Zuspan said.

Restaurant Weeks started with the intention of spotlighting the city as a premier dining destination.

Angie Timberlake, a customer, said it's great to walk downtown and feel a sense of community during the delicious event.

"I think it's a good idea, especially having the outside seating area. People can walk around downtown, it gets their attention, the food is excellent and it's just a good variety," Timberlake said.

Ashley Saunders, hostess at Barefoot Bernie's, said it gets people out of the house and into something tasty.

"It's a good thing for Hagerstown, I think it gets people out and about and doing things that they normally wouldn't do," Saunders said. "I tell people to come out and try foods they haven't tried before at a cheaper price."

This years participating restaurant specials are between $20 to $30.
