Graffiti Junktion2501 Edgewater Drive
Usually, the nice thing about a popular restaurant’s second location is it gets to iron out the wrinkles from the original joint. Yet when Graffiti Junktion popped itself into the cloning machine and took over the College Park address formerly held by K Restaurant and Wine Bar, it did almost too good a job at replication.
Everything looks straight out of the old place – the colorfully accented picnic tables, tagger art on the walls, ample sports-showin’ TVs, even the upper-crusty neighborhood – but if you ever had problems at the first GJ with wait time, prompt service or a correct order, you’re just as likely to find these drawbacks waiting for you here. Fortunately, the menu still features delicious gems like the $6 chili-laden potato skins and the same mouthwatering burgers (the $10 Cheese Head is a personal favorite), so it’s almost forgivable for them to have simply given us more of the same.
