We were at the Wilmington Riverfront on July 4th and decided to try Del Pez. It's been there for a while, taking the place of Kooma oh so long ago. The space in the interior looks similar, but DP has outside seating as well. Kids...meals were nice. Lots of food for the kids, so they were happy. My wife always gets the fish tacos. Same here. I tried a taco sampler. The shrimp one was probably the best, but it might have been because I tackled it first. By the time I got to the last two tacos, the bottom of the soft corn tortilla shell was falling apart. Whatever they can do to keep the shells from doing that will improve the diner's experience.More

I've been coming to this place for a while now. I love the food and the drinks are always on point. I never had an issue until tonight. I had a (very long) hair in my drink. Before I could even say something it was...replaced with a new drink (not what I originally and was added to my bill. Not only was there a hair in my drink but I still had to pay for it! The manager was extremely rude about the situation and never let me explain what truly happened. The server was also very inattentive and only came over to check on us about once or twice. I most likely will never be going here again. If you are looking for a place with "alright service" this is the place for you.More

two of the four meals were average one was good and mine was pretty bad. The four taco sampler I got one was good, the shrimp. The pork the beef and the duck were all overcooked and chewy. The toppings were awful. However, great staff...and bar area. easy convenient parking.More

First visit. Sat outside. Nice patio - well shaded. With breeze it was a little on the chilly side. Since first visit, we were given a free sampler appetizer. It was yummy. There were 4 in our party. Everybody was very happy with their meals....Portion sizes were good, on the larger size. Guacamole was very good - fresh and fried habaneros were tasty and spicy! Enchiladas were good - white sauce vs traditional red, little on sweet side. Burger was cooked perfectly. Chips tasty. Salsa has good spice to it. Server was very good. Looking forward to returning.More

We visited with friends who live in the area. Personally, I was eager to try as my husband generally dislikes Mexican restaurants as there are generally limited choices to his liking. When Del Pez was suggested, I took a quick look at menu and I...was quite pleased to see that at least my spouse could have a burger if nothing else was to his liking. I am so pleased that we visited as we all four enjoyed the entire meal. We started by sharing the wings. Everyone enjoyed – especially my husband. They were char grilled and quite tasty! For the main dish my husband ordered the Chimichurri Salmon and he loved it! Myself and one of our friends went with a Short Rib special that was ‘out of this world”! Cancun Shrimp was the other dish. We all enjoyed the food! Drinks were not quite as noteworthy. A Sangria was a huge disappointment! The Mezcal Mule was ok. However, the smashed strawberries at bottom of cup (not listed on ingredients list) were gross so I switch to an El Chavo Margarita. The margarita was fine. However, seemed to skimp on the tequila as several (on top of Mezcal Mule) had no effect. The member of our party who stuck with a craft beer seemed most pleased with his drink. Churros for desert were quite tasty. The patio seating was very pleasant as was the service. I would return. However, I must caution that it seemed overcrowded on a Saturday evening. We had eaten a very early dinner and it was perfect. However, after our meal we all walked along the river to enjoy the pleasant weather (may have been the last such warm evening for a while) and after our walk, I stopped back to use the rest room prior to commencing a long drive back to Philly suburbs and I was surprised at how crowded the vestibule was with people waiting to be seated and definitely not following social distancing guidelines. Until there is a vaccine, I will try to visit during non-popular times.More

Del Pez fuses the warmth and friendliness of a traditional pub with a diverse and delicious cuisine, especially truffle chips, nachos and pinna colada. We were treated by our son in law's 2 cousins.

Much better than expected. There wasn’t as much Mexican food on the menu as I thought should be for it being a Mexican restaurant, but the chicken enchiladas were great and the black beans were some of the best I’ve had as a side dish....Great local beer selection as well.More

We had brunch at Del Pez for the first time and were quite impressed. They have a wonderful omlette that is served with home fries and fruit...simply delicious! We also had the breakfast burrito and that too was very good. Add to that a very...pleasant waiter and it all added up to a wonderful dining experience.More

Finally found it! It is not directly on the riverfront as one might think. You have to take a side oath to get to it, near Harlan Flats. It had a trendy, hip atmosphere to it. The patrons seemed to be mostly young, twenty-somethings. I...was given a “welcome” appetizer, since it was my first time! The beer cheese dip and cornbread mixture were good, served with tortilla chips. I ordered the chicken fajitas. The chicken was tender and there was a generous portion of grilled onions and peppers. The fajitas were good. They were served with red rice and black beans which were just ok. The server was very good. I would try here again, maybe for a quick drink or happy hour and a light bite.More

Great food and drinks. We have been there multiple times, all a great experience. Recommend the quac, corn cake, and tacos. Have some tasty margaritas!

Not really. There is street parking, but it is hard to find nearby.
