    Lotsa Pasta: We eat here three times a week!

    by tpangelinan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lotsa Pasta, say hi to Johnny, tell him Terry and Mike sent you. Have a Corona with a lime and a Godiva Chocolate Martini and a LEMON MOUSSE for us!! This is by far, bar none OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT EVER!! We never put it up here because they have plenty of loyal fans already, and it is a secret spot. Pauline does an excellent job maintaining quality and a crew that serves top notch servics. 4 Star food, 4 Star service, and Cheap to boot! Lunch is an experience. Cutting edge menue, excellent choices. Not too eye catching, or fancy from out side, but inside is neat and clean and comfortable. Consistancy is always good, excellent cullinary delights. You see the same people here eating 3, 4, 5 nights a week. Don't ever say nothing is free in America, folks. Bread, Soup and Salad come with most dinners!!! There is hardly ever a wait, the fall seems to be the busiest season. We eat at the bar, but the booths are nice too. The special attention you get at the bar when Johnny quits picking on you and gives you his VIP service. So you can't go to Cheers where every body knows your name, you can go to Johnn's bar where he will not only learn your name but what you drink, who your team is and most importantly, things like "you hate olives in your salad, right?". He is one of the best bartender's in the State...period.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish's are Johnny, Gary and Ed of course!!! That having been said, (I want my free drink when I come in fellas) ;-)
    Steamed Shrimp, appetizer is the best in the whole state of Delaware, (and I know)
    Steamed Clams are tiny and tender, ummm, you will Love them!
    Mozzerella sticks are Mike's usual choice.
    The Mediteranean Salad with shrimp is....an experience. (Gary, I love you for that)
    Get the soup of the day, it's always good.
    Chicken Pamesian and a Twice Baked Potato (Mike) (BEST CHICKEN PARM IN DE!!!)
    LEMON MOUSSE...LEMON MOUSSE...LEMON MOUSSE....BEST DESSERT IN DELAWARE

    Dreamers Cafe: Taste home made, yet new and different

    by tpangelinan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Area boutique cafe. Unusual items, old favorites made new again. Hot Wings are great. They have a great Hot Sauce collection on the walls. Tables are plain, no tableclothes here. Best to take out and eat at home. Hot Wings ar as follows: Lullaby, Sweet Dreams, Nightmares, Devils Revenge, Spontaneous Combustion, Beyond Smoked Bones, Bu8rnt Ashes, and my favorite....You must be CRAZY! Great Salads like, Turkey Bourbon, Jamaican Beef Jerk and Shrimp Caesar Salad. Soup and Half a Salad are a steal at $6.00. Lots of low carb choices. Over 20 Gourmet Sandwiches for 5.95, comes with bagel chips and a pickel too! Cheap as fast food, tastes like mom made it. Fast, clean, cheap and easy. You will love this place. 10 Wings are $4.50. Cheese Fries are 2.75. Quart of soup is $6.00.

    Favorite Dish: Cream of Crab soup is so wonderful. Soups change everyday, and are usually very apealing. Try the Monkey Flip or the Road Runner Sandwich. The Dreamer, chicken salad with walnuts, grapes and sun dried tomatoes is my favorite. The Nitro Extreme, chicken breast with hot sauce, on kaiser roll with pepper jack cheese, lettuce, onion and tomatoe, blackened fries and cole slaw. Blue cheese on the side...$6.75. With sandwiches like Grim Reaper and Blazing Hell Fire, just reading the menue is fun! They have stuffed bread boules with names like Thunder Bolt, cheddar cheese, chili onions and tomatoes, Devils Rage, Cattlemens Cry, The Jerk and Utopia, my favorite, Shrimp, Crabmeat and bacon with cheddar.

    Favorite Dish: I always get the buffet, but they have a HUGE regular menue also!

  • La Margaritas: Great fajitas and Margaritas

    by LadybugQ Written Jan 17, 2009

    La Margaritas is located in El Mercado area of San Antonio. We frst started eating there in 1981-83 when we lived in SA. Whenever we would return to SA, La Margaritas would be our first stop after landing at the airport. Although we live in Kerrville, we try to get to La Margaritas whenever we head into the "big city".

    Favorite Dish: La Margaritas is where we first started eating fajitas, and introduced many friends to them.

    Domaine Hudson wine bar & eatery: Epicurean alert!

    by onthegoindel Updated Aug 17, 2007

    Domaine Hudson wine bar & eatery immediately makes you feel comfortable when you walk thru the door, leaving behind the bustle of the street out front. It's clearly one of downtown Wilmington's choicest dining spots, if not Delaware's. Cuisine is Nouveau American. It has one of the largest selections of wines by the glass, offering them in 1.5, 3 or 5-oz pours, which is great if you're unsure about a particular wine or just want to sample a bunch of them without getting completely trashed in the process. It also lends itself to pairing a variety of wines with different courses throughout dinner. Extensive wines by the bottle list, too. Don't miss the artisanal cheeses -- cheese tray is great as either a starter or as dessert. Lots of yummy cheeses to choose from.

    Favorite Dish: The rare Ahi tuna and the wild salmon (both available as small plates) are delicious, and so is the free-range duck breast.

    This is a very cute, trendy old fashioned ice cream shop type store. A quiet place to have a secret meeting.

    Favorite Dish: Temptations, Serving lunches, ice cream, candy and full line of Godiva Chocolate. Get a chicken salad sandwich here! If you like ice cream, stop by here and eat with real in town folks.

    Del Rose Cafe: For drinks only! I hear the Bands are good.

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 5, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Del Rose Cafe, 1707 Delaware Ave.
    656-3015
    Trolley Square’s award winning music venue and fine dining.
    Been here a long time, personally I think you have to be pretty drunk to like the food here. Drinks were good though! Some folks love it. Sauce was sour, I never like that. Anti pasta was huge, get it to share. Like cole slaw, it's all chopped up, not my bag at all, Aunt Pat didn't even eat half of it. Crab Spagetti was fishy. Ravioli was OK, Olive Garden is better. Sorry Del Rose, I hear you have great bands, but I would skip it for a meal.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hip strip, happy hour heaven. Nice booths, Friday night is very noisy, can't hear your date noisy. We did like the food, service was pretty good. Mike had Nachos and they were OK. I might go back, but not for a serious meal. Just a snack and a beverage.

    Favorite Dish: (302) 652-7737

    Iron Hill jBrewery: Great American Style Food, Iron Hill Brewery

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With slogans like..."Our beer snobs can beat up your wine snobs" you know right away this is a real brewery. Good food, get a booth. Prepare to wait, as is a Wilmington Happy Hour Hot Spot. I find the food interesting, fresh and reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood Bisque...very good, $6.50 a bowl and very filling. Here's something different, a soup sampler-Chicken Gumbo, Roasted Carrot and Seafood Bisque.
    Shrimp Tempura, lo mein noodle salad, toasted sesame ginger sauce, and wasabi mayo for $10.95.
    Old fashioned oatmeal cake with vanilla ice cream $5.95
    Iron Hill Root Beer Float $3.95
    Creme Brule $5.95

    Walters Steak House: Food is pretty good, expensive, and slow service

    by tpangelinan Updated Mar 4, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food is pricy. We have eaten here six or seven times. Ever since our favorite waiter Rob left, it's just not the same. The filet with the white lumb crab meat on top is good, but at $36.00, it should be good. Make a reservation if you go, and have an appletini, apple pucker and grey goose, but have it at the bar. Set aside lots and lots of time to have dinner, as it is super slow, and can take three or four hours to get your complete dinner here from appetizers to dessert. The Constantinou family is famous for beef here in Wilmington, so the food is excellent. Not for the faint of wallet.
    M-Th 5-10pm F-Sa 5-11pm Su 4-10pm
    Reservations are Recommended.

    Favorite Dish: ANNAPOLIS HOT CRAB DIP
    fresh crab meat and cream sauce served with water crackers
    SEAFOOD APPETIZER BAR : Sunday, Monday, & Thursday only
    Caviar, Steamed Shrimp, Clams Casino, Mussels Marinara
    Compliments of Walter's with your dinner.
    All entrees include fresh baked bread and butter, tossed salad,
    and choice of potato, stuffed potato, steak fries or rice.

    Bangkok House: Best Thai Food in North Delaware

    by tpangelinan Updated Mar 4, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So great! This is a very authentic Thai Restaurant. The people who own it close on a whim and go toThailand when ever they feel the urge. Even people from Thailand eat here because it reminds them of home.

    Favorite Dish: Peanut Sauce and Chicken Panang are works of culinary art. Yum-Sum like it hot! I believe this is a family owned operation, two women doing everything so go with time and patience on you side. The chicken curry is very nice too. Get three or four things and share. The folks who run this place have an Thai Lunch buffet at the Riverfront Market during the week also. Three dishes for $5.95. Very reasonable at lunch, dinner is a little pricy, but worth the expense.
