From craft beer to iconic sandwiches, find out where to get the best grub on the big game day!
Sample local flavor at craft beer-centric locations on the Delaware Beer, Wine & Spirits Trail including, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (and its restaurant), 16-Mile Brewing Company, Iron Hill Brewery (Wilmington and Newark locations), Fordham and Dominion Brewing Company and Stewart’s Brewing Company.
All those beers are naturally best accompanied by food that packs the culinary punch of an All-Pro linebacker, whether it’s wings or pizza or barbecue. Here are a few places to get your grub on:
-- Nicola Pizza in Rehoboth Beach is known throughout the state for its legendary Nic-o-Boli, an addictively cheesy “inside-out” pizza stuffed with ground beef and a variety of other goodies.
-- As one of the stops on the popular Delaware Culinary Trail, the Big Fish Grill in Rehoboth is a crowd favorite year-round, but this time of year they also wrap up everything from game day to-go boxes.
-- Fans can’t go wrong at Abbott's Grill in Milford, the creative, people-pleasing menu is supplemented nicely with a super buffet.
-- Arguably one of the masters of cheese-steak artistry in the state, Claymont Steak Shop (in Claymont and Newark) is also a dependable go-to spot for other game day essentials, such as wings, pizza and subs.
In the mood for a sub? Delaware stands as the unrivalled master of the sub-sandwich art form, most notably those made at Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, the Delaware-born chain that now has locations around the country.
-- Speaking of pizza, no grub fest list would be complete without mentioning the iconic Delaware pizza spot – Grotto Pizza (locations statewide). These swirled-cheese, thin-crust creations practically define Delaware for people who’ve spent time at the beaches.
-- When people think of the historic Deer Park Tavern in Newark, two things typically spring to mind – the Edgar Alan Poe raven statue, and this iconic restaurant’s “Los Nachos Grandes,” piled high with all you could ever need.
