Humagalas review: Bel Air restaurant Humagalas serves pizza and burgers with Maryland flair

When we walked into Humagalas in Bel Air, we were expecting a suburban, chain-like restaurant experience with average food and service. Boy, were we wrong.

The family-owned eatery, in the former DuClaw Brewing Co. space, proves that a burger-and-pizza place can deliver freshly prepared, locally sourced products that are better than average.

It’s not such a surprise when you find out that the owners, brothers Bob and Bill Frankis of the Frankis Restaurant Group, are experienced restaurateurs. They operate five Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grille locations in Maryland and Delaware — two of which are in Harford County.

They even have an explanation for the restaurant’s crazy name. “Humagalas” was a family moniker used by their father for his sons when they were either good or mischievous, as in his “little Humagalas.”

The siblings thought the term of endearment fit the new restaurant, which opened in March with the slogan “Real Food — Real Friends.”
