“Mrs. K’s Toll House Restaurant is situated in what was the last operating tollhouse in Montgomery County. Since that time, Mrs. K’s has become one of the most well-known restaurants in Silver Spring. It’s the place for gathering after work, sharing the holidays, enjoying a wonderful meal with a fabulous wine selection and creating the best of memories with your most special events.” –MrsKs.com
Harvey and Blanche Kreuzburg purchased the tollhouse in 1929 and opened for business the following year. Throughout the house, you’ll see various antiques…some much older than the restaurant itself.
Since then, the restaurant was operated by members of the Kreuzberg family until ownership changed hands in 1996.
Mrs. K’s is a Silver Spring classic.
(Rumor has it, the inside dining rooms were used as a “speakeasy” during prohibition.)
