So it's the age-old story: Two boys (this time from Buffalo; purported Wing Capital of the World) get hungry for hometown nosh. So they bring hometown nosh to (this time it's) Kent, OH. It was over 30 years ago that Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery dropped the first Buffalo Wild Wing into the first
Kay's menu proudly touts, "Homemade Food Like Mom Used to Make." Though many places might say that, at Kay's on N. First St. in Rehoboth Beach, it's the truth. Rita Kilgore, her son Patrick and daughter Katie pay homage to Rita's mother there at the tiny carryout.
Breakfast sandwiches dominate the morning menu that features the iconic
As RehobothFoodie.com has grown in popularity over the years (thank you, by the way), people regularly email me about their experiences regarding pretty much anything having to do with food -- including restaurants about which I have not yet written. So by the time I complete my required three visits, I have a fairly well-rounded idea of what people are thinking, local trends; what's in and what's out. (And you can take "well-rounded" any way you want to....)
Out of 237 restaurant-specific folders in my email box, the one named "RBPetesStShp" contains about 60 emails. And from this conglomeration of
Pizza Palace is under new management as of early spring 2013. A new review will be posted soon. Feel free to use the existing article as a guideline.
Millsboro's Pizza Palace was the traditional stop on our weekly trek up Rt. 113 on our way back to Thunderdome (aka, Washington, D.C. area) -- before we had the good sense to just stay here forever. So it was with a bit of nostalgia that we made our visits to the new Pizza Palace in Midway Galleria in Rehoboth. Even more nostalgic was the fact that we had been fans of Marty McDonnell's Ledo's Pizza franchise that sadly fizzled in that space.
So now somebody else is in there, and selling pizza, yet. Though we had a great appreciation for Ledo's somewhat unusual pie (having grown up with it near the University of Maryland in College Park), Pizza Palace seems to have
In 1958, brothers Frank and Dan Carney borrowed $600 from their mom to open a pizza parlor on the campus of their school, Wichita State University. The tiny slant-roofed building had room for only 9 letters (including spaces) on the existing sign, so the hut-like joint became ...Pizza Hut.
By 1973, the operation had
It's no secret that Jake's Wayback Burgers is easily filling the void left by the recent shuttering of the 5 Guys store in Lewes. But Rehoboth Beach is not Jake's first rodeo by any means. The chain's increasing presence on the East Coast, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey is a pretty good indication that they must be doing something right. I know what you're thinking: "Spare us the rambling hyperbole. How does it compare to 5 Guys?"
Well, first things first, dear reader. Good
Just when you think there are just enough subs / heros / grinders / hoagies in town, somebody throws a new twist into the mix. This time that twist comes from the Philadelphia-based sandwich ... oops, Hoagie ... shop ensconced in the last little strip center on the right at the end of Rehoboth Avenue, just before you merge onto Coastal Highway.
The owner has another of these little joints in
For years, that sunny corner at First and Wilmington was called the Kannery, where the mom and the boys dished up OK subs, burgers and sandwiches. That is, of course, until George and Soula Vrentzos and their daughter Irene opened the Corner Grille in that very same spot. George was a chef in fine dining restaurants for most of his life, and even within the limitations of a beachy sandwich shop, his
Say what you like, but the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk really needed something in the "no-man's land" at the easternmost end of Wilmington Avenue, flanked only by Gus & Gus' Place and Thrasher's. Well, it's been revitalized by the appearance of the
Nick and Joan Caggiano's colorful eatery has been a Rehoboth Beach staple since that big blue wet thing was installed at the end of Rehoboth Avenue (or at least since '71...). This is beachy, family dining all the way. The original location is complete with the scarred wooden booths, hour-long waits in the summer, wood floors and the cool electric
I've been coming to Rehoboth Beach for a long time (I even worked in Ocean city in the late '60s), and I can't remember when there wasn't a Grotto Pizza. Indeed, it was founded on Rehoboth Avenue in 1960 during a time when most people had no idea what the heck a
When you think of the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk, you can't help but think of Gus & Gus' Place. It's as much a part of life around here as salt water taffy, the bandstand, parking tickets and summer evening happy hour on Baltimore Ave. Located right on the boardwalk at the foot of
