Whether you like traditional gumbo or want a unique twist, several local restaurants have you covered. You can order from home and request pickup or delivery. The eateries offering gumbo near our Millersville apartments include:

Miss Shirley’s Cafe 

At Miss Shirley’s Cafe, the chefs use fresh local ingredients to prepare Southern favorites. Unsurprisingly, the restaurant gains attention in national magazines and on shows such as Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. For breakfast, try the gumbo omelet. It includes blackened chicken, shrimp, and andouille sausage topped with Miss Shirley’s gumbo sauce. Order online for pickup or delivery between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 


Soul serves Southern classics “inspired by the flavors and people of the Carolinas, the Delta, and New Orleans.” The artfully plated meals burst with unforgettable flavors. Each dish features the finest, freshest ingredients and pairs well with the Prohibition mixes. Enjoy the Bees Knees with the gumbo, and order online for pickup. Delivery through Grubhub and Uber Eats is also available for non-alcoholic purchases. 

Davis’ Pub 

What began as a confections and general store in the 1920s is now Davis’ Pub. Here you’ll find hearty meals and Maryland sports memorabilia hanging from the exposed rafters. The extensive menu features something for everyone. The chefs create from scratch and are known for their daily specials. Try the chicken and sausage gumbo. It’s served with a toasted baguette and pairs with the beer-battered onion rings. Plus, ask about the beer to-go when you place your order for pickup.
