Remember the old Flaming Pit?
The classic MoCo restaurant was located on 355 in Gaithersburg between Watkins Mill and Game Preserve Roads. It was owned by Aris Mardirossian (the founder of another classic MoCo chain, 6-12).
After a few years as Stonehouse Grill it is now known as La Villa Restaurant, a Tex-Mex Bar & Grill. The restaurant is open for business!
