Grotto Pizza, a Delaware Institution

CynDee tells me the guy who started Grotto PIzza began with one storefront, selling late into the night to hungry summer beach partiers. Now you can’t go anywhere without seeing a branch of Grotto somewhere. We tried the one in downtown Reheboth.

We headed out in the morning, looking to do more shopping. Here’s the view from Jayne’s house to the road that takes you to town.

Sometimes, when the water is really rough, it floods there.

Hurricane Noel was making the water really rough.

See?



On the way to town, we stopped to take some photos of the funny signs we’d been seeing. Laurel pointed out Holt’s Liquors:

I also quite like the mottos in Delaware:

Wilmington’s is “A Place To Be Somebody” and CynDee always finishes that sentence with “else.”

We arrive at Grotto around 1 or so.

There was an interesting antic going on, involving a woman and a glass of water.



Our waiter was also very weird. He offered to take this photo —

Sure, Frank. Thanks. We’d love one of all of us.

Pizza arrives, and CynDee serves.



It was delishy.

On thew way home, we took more photos of interesting signs. I’m an especially big fan of these two:

Grotto Pizza is quite delishy. My first post-college job was serving up those tasty pies in the Wilmington location. I have countless nights ending with the Grotto pizza. My personal favey, other than the simple cheese, is the Grotty with mushrooms, onions and fresh tomatoes. Yum Yum. Where is Jayne's new house? Bethany? Am I not reading everything and missing this? OK bye.
