Route 13 south of the Delaware Memorial bridge is a desert for hungry people. It used to be traveling in the South you could rely on Howard Johnson's, but they are dead. We found The Golden Dove Diner (warning, Golden is in very fine print, and I though the name of the place was The Dove Diner) on a trip... More

If you happen to be traveling south having just come over the Delaware Memorial Bridge, you will find not a lot of places to grab a bite, especially if you are traveling on DE route 1. Take the New Castle exit and drive down the DuPont Hwy to see a lot of places to grab a bite. We did last... More

Stopped here on a rainy Saturday night on our way to Jersey. The waitress was nice but couldn't give much direction on what to order. Our dinners came with soup or salad & cheese bread. The bread with a sweet cream cheese filling was the best part of the meal. If you stop here stick to breakfast or a BLT.

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat after being on the road for hours. I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap. The buffalo sauce was unlike any color I have seen for buffalo sauce. Then, when I decided it just did not taste good, I came across a long hair in my chicken. I came pretty close to puking.... More

Overall a typical diner with your usual fare. Turkey was ok ... Mac n cheese had absolutely no taste at all, bagged veggies also bland. The saving grace was the crab bisque soup, they say they are known for their cheese bread with every meal but for some reason I never got any. Staff however was very pleasant.

This is definitely a gem in a smallish town near the Jersey border just off 95. We had a hard time deciding what to order as the menu is enormous. Ask the waiter what is most popular as some items were not great. We loved the chicken and dumplings and the stuffed flounder specials. Both were under $10 and included... More

Came across the Golden Dove when looking for something other than fast food after getting back to my hotel from an event, having not had dinner. Menu selection is fairly extensive, with the typical diner-food selections available. Not exactly haute cuisine by any means, but it's good if you're looking for a reasonable meal late at night. Waitstaff were all... More

Two stars instead of one because (a) the waitstaff couldn't have been nicer and (b) my 80-year-old mother liked her bluefish. This is one of those places that has a 10-page, six-different-font, incredibly dense menu of everything from crab soup to chicken parmesan. It serves huge quantities at very reasonable prices. But with variety and volume high, and price being... More

The place is spacious and so is the menu. Love the breakfast menu, and the deserts are plenty. We always try and make it a point to dine here when we are in the area.
