Does Perry Hall Need a Gino's?

The restaurant's new Towson location is scheduled to open on Aug. 18.

Hey Towson, stop hogging the Gino's.

According to an on Towson Patch published Tuesday, Perry Hall residents are feeling a little jealous of the new Gino's restaurant on East Joppa Road, scheduled to open Aug. 18.

The beloved fast food-joint started in Dundalk in 1957 and is named for Baltimore Colts legend Gino Marchetti. Its last Maryland location closed in Pasadena in 1991.

County Councilman David Marks, whose jurisdiction includes Towson and Perry Hall, said there's local demand for a Perry Hall Gino's.

As stated in the article:

County Councilman David Marks attended the small party on Tuesday and told Patch that the legendary Gino's Giant "tastes like a Big Mac, but creamier."

"It was great and the food was wonderful and I think it's going to be a big asset to the area," Marks said, adding that his Perry Hall constituents had been asking when a new restaurant might open there.

Would you like to see Gino's come to Perry Hall?

We probably do not need another fast food place BUT Ginos was Perry Hall's first fast food when even McDonalds was not here. We had the fourth Ginos ever built I believe , located where Starbucks is today.

And only 15 cents as I recall. That did not last but that low amount I do remember.

UPDATE: Perry Hall Gino's to Replace Honeygo Wendy's (http://patch.com/A-p3P7): "The planned Perry Hall Gino's Burgers and Chicken will replace the former Wendy's on Honeygo Center Drive, according to co-franchisee Sophie Kennedy."

Yes, I remember the Gino's in Perry Hall across from the now defunct Town and Country Pontiac. After Gino's it was a Roy Rogers, Popeye's chicken and currently, Starbucks. Gino's is a restaurant Maryland can call its own. I am also biased, since my youngest son is named Gino.
