On the positive side: they roast their own meats and slice to order. There are many sandwich choices on the menu, mostly variations on the same theme - beef, pork or chicken plus the usual "hoagie" choices. Anywhere else they'd be a good place but considering it is Delaware which is woefully stuck in mediocrity, they are way above average.... More

I have had cheese steaks up and down the east coast, the ones from Ioannoni's are definitely the best I have ever eaten. This a sandwich shop with a couple of tables and booths for enjoying your sandwich. Most sandwiches are ordered for take out. The italian sub my wife had was excellent as well. But the cheese steaks will... More

Best cheese steak I've ever had! Beats Pat's and Geno's in Philly hands down! Will stop again! I got a medium and couldn't finish it, it was stuffed with meat!

its always bothersome to see the owner weighing each piece of meat before he puts it on a sandwitch. after making a few you would think he could remember. scarce amounts of meat in all the sandwitches , porkette tastes like a spicy mess almost un eatable without smothering it with greens and sharpe cheese. the subs are 75% bread,...

Both their pork and roast beef are outstanding. I love the roast beef with real horseradish not the sauce! They also have the hot peppers that I apply sparingly. Rolls and Kaiser buns are fresh and soft. I always have left-overs. Seating is sparse (about six tables and three stools along a counter on the wall.

Simply put the best overall sub shop in DE. There are probably other places with a better type of sandwich, but none of the can top the overall consistency across the board...

Great beef and pork sandwiches. cold Subs are outstanding as well. Only downside is it is often crowded and can be hectic. Portions are huge.

From the exterior you would never believe that such great food is found on the inside. The exterior is nothing special. In fact, it is quite plan looking. But the food is absolutely fantastic. The best cheese steak that I have had in years. The peanut butter & chocolate cake is incredible. I highly recommend this place. It is a... More

Went here during a business trip, for the first time. It was a cold day, the place is very small (maybe 8 tables) but the staff was awesome. While waiting for my order, I heard more then once the comment"this place smells wonderful, awesome, fantastic" and on and on the comments came. The roasted pork or beef are both tender,... More

This evening, my son came in trying to get me to eat yet another bacon cheeseburger and I just wasn't going to do it. I wanted to try something different and a quick search for best roast beef in Delaware brought Ioannoni's up. I then remembered that a friend had also recommended them to me when we were discussing restaurants... More
