Helen’s offers all manner of breakfast sandwich on bread or rolls, made with eggs, bacon, scrapple, and fried ham; as well as lunch-time sandwiches of steak, cheese steak, burgers, hot beef and hot ham. Other than sausage, the one must-eat (and must see!) meal is Helen’s pork chop sandwich. When the menu says jumbo pork chop, you better believe it. This slab of meat is approximately three times larger than the puny pieces of white bread that are stuck on either side of it.
Hopkins Farm Creamery is the place to go in southern Delaware for the freshest and creamiest ice cream around. We have been particularly impressed by the black raspberry and the chocolate banana walnut.
Amish cooking in central Delaware! Highlights of the menu include scrapple, creamed chipped beef and the hot apple dumpling with milk.
You'd never believe that sandwiched between a Dollar General and a Mexican grocery store there would be a restaurant with such good-tasting Creole food and fresh seafood, but that's what makes Po' Boys Creole & Fresh Catch a Roadfood stop.
Turkey sandwiches are a "thing" in Delaware and the best subs can be found at Capriotti's. For starters, not only is the turkey freshly roasted, but it TASTES roasted. And further, the meat isn't sliced, it's "pulled", like pulled pork, resulting in a roll filled with shreds and chunks of turkey meat. Their trademark Bobbie sub holds stuffing and cranberry sauce in addition to turkey.
Woodside Farms calls their ice cream "Farm Fresh." The ice cream they make and sell is produced from milk provided by the Jersey cows right here on their farm. This ice cream is extraordinarily thick and dense. Although the Mitchell family has been making ice cream only since 1998, the farm goes back to the late 18th century.
The Charcoal Pit is an old-fashioned burger joint that serves a classic mid-century sandwich: a modest patty with a charcoal taste served on a big, spongy bun either plain or in the deluxe configuration, which adds lettuce, tomato and pickle.
The Dog House isn't only about hot dogs. Cheese steak sandwiches are piled high with juicy shaved beef, sweet onions, and goopy cheese. Even the turkey sandwich is made from a real, fresh-roasted turkey. No doubt about it: These are sandwiches worthy of the Culinary Big League of the Delaware Valley, a league in which sandwich making is a fine art.
