The picture below is the junior crabcake platter, which is served at lunch for $15.95. It is a very large crab cake!

I have lived in the Baltimore/Washington area for about twenty-five years and quite honestly, I could not understand what all the fuss was about when it came to crab cakes. I liked them all right and I was polite about them, but I confess to a little secret -- a feeling that this was perfectly OK food, but nothing extraordinary.
That was until I went to Koco's Grill. They have absolutely the best crab cakes I have ever had. These 11-ounce crab cakes have little filler, just the right amount of seasoning, and are made with very good crab meat. In my opinion, no other crab cake in Baltimore comes close to what Koco's offers. They also come with excellent french fries. The crab cake platter in the evening costs $17.95.
This nice little neighborhood bar does not look like much. But why should it? Isn't making the ultimate crab cake enough? (I have been to Koco's at least ten times, and the quality is as consistent as the friendly service.)
Koco's is closed on Sunday and Monday, and reservations are recommended on Thursday, the night for the crab cake platter special. I recommend some places, but I believe that Koco's is simply mandatory. Go there! You will not regret discovering this marvellous place.
