Hornet's Nest Grille Holds Fundraiser for Local Police Officer

We are extremely humbled and thankful for the support that the Montgomery County police force and our surrounding communities showed Tuesday, February 6th for Jon Green and his family. With the help and support of the community The Hornet's Nest was able to raise funds to be donated to the Green family. On top of that, we also collected additional donations and words of encouragement that were passed along to Jon's wife. Just another reason that we are so blessed to be a part of this wonderful Damascus community.

HNG Celebrates National Burger Day

"In celebration of National Burger Day, I'm pleased to report that my years long search for a truly great hamburger in Maryland is finally complete! And the best part is that it's only ten minutes from my house. I finally made it over to the Hornet's Nest Grille in Damascus, and had the best burger I've tried in years. Seriously, people, if you're anywhere near the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area come out to Damascus, even if you have to drive a ways. 

This burger is worth the trip." - JH
