“Great sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

We are locals, so we have been to Arena's many times. Great sandwiches, but the fish tacos are FABULOUS! Good soups and nice beer selection, too. Definitely recommended!

“Good location, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Nice outdoor dining as well as indoors. Good variety of menu items leaning toward sandwiches. We had fried shrimp which was very tasty and a chicken cheese steak sandwich which was good but lacked zip. Service was very good and very fast and the restaurant was filled when others nearby were not. Seemed to be a place the locals go.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Arena's is a small deli just off of the main street in Rehoboth. It has a laid-back, casual atmosphere. The food is fantastic and the beer list is quite extensive. My boyfriend is still fantasizing about the chicken wrap that he ordered from the build-your-own section of the menu.

“A good place for a sandwich or chili and a beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

There are two Arena Delis - one in downtown Rehoboth and one just outside the town limits on route 1. Both are sparsely decorated and serve a large variety of sandwiches and other simple foods. However, the food is pretty good and relatively cheap by Rehoboth standards. I've been to each Arena very many times, and my favorite is the meatball sub. I've also enjoyed the Italian sub very much. Sandwiches come with chips and a pickle. There are also very many beers to choose from. The service is friendly, but can be slow during the summer tourist crush.
