Pete’s in Rehoboth Marketplace is famous for creative pizzas and cheesesteaks

January 7, 2020

Pete’s expertise with cheesesteaks is the stuff of legend, but in addition to a wide selection of hot and cold subs and wraps such as the traditional reuben with sauerkraut, a smoked Italian sausage sub, and pulled pork/pit beef sandwiches prepared the traditional way, Pete’s is also justifiably proud of their specialty pizzas. They offer a great selection of freshly baked pizzas for dining in, carryout or fast delivery. Depart from the ordinary and try some of the newest creations, including the pulled pork pizza (the meat is smoked on the premises!), the Buffalo chicken pie and the chicken, bacon and ranch specialty pie.

There’s a lot of Delaware history behind Pete’s Steak Shop, and the restaurant’s early beginnings embody the American dream. Greek immigrants Pete and Marika Vasilikos opened Pete’s luncheonette in downtown Wilmington in 1974, and the Pete’s in Rehoboth Marketplace center has kept the family legacy alive since 2012. Of course, the menu has evolved with the times, adding juicy burgers, gyros, homemade soups, Italian subs, pastas and even vegetarian dishes to the menu lineup. The Cuban is legendary, with the bright taste of thinly-sliced ham and pickles.

Lunchtime at Pete’s can be a particularly wallet-friendly experience. The sandwiches are the perfect go-to bite: Dig into the turkey & American cheese sandwich, or even the crunchy BLT. Pete’s chicken salad with provolone is one of Rehoboth’s best sellers! Do you love the user-friendly convenience of a wrap? Then Pete’s Steak Shop is your spot for easy-to-handle wraps, including the chicken cheesesteak, the old-style Italian and the chicken/bacon ranch wrap. Pete’s menu offers seven more wraps to please every palate.

Pete’s Steak Shop is known for quick delivery and online ordering for both delivery and pickup. Viewed from Coastal Highway, Pete’s Steak Shop could be a steakhouse or a butcher shop! But in fact, it’s home to some of the best cheesesteaks, sandwiches and burgers in the Rehoboth Beach area. Not to mention the hot, baked-to-order specialty pizzas!

Pete’s Home of the Ultimate Cheesesteak is located in the Rehoboth Marketplace at 19287 Miller Road and Coastal Highway. Order online at or call 302-226-3000.
