My wife has her theory about restaurants. If the place is packed then the food is good. On Sunday October 13,2013 we were on Route 13 heading back to NJ when my wife spotted a hundred cars at a diner. We immediately veered off the road into Ches Del territory. We could only find space at the counter for immediate service. I ordered the corned beef hash as it was advertised as ”home made”. My wife ordered some type of omelet. I hate to say this but this is a place that should be closed, bulldozed and re opened or import some Greeks from New Jersey who will show you Delaware folks how to run a diner.
I love salt. I even salt my water. The corned beef hash was so salty that I thought Portuguese fisherman has prepared it for the journey home. Cardinal sin for this potato lover is tasteless not cooked home fries. A moron can cook good home fries. The stuff was cold, uncooked and dreadful. My wife took one bite and sent the food back eating only my toast. I ate the stuff, paid my bill and went to the bathroom before I left. I have always believed clean sparkling bathrooms mean clean sparkling kitchens. The bathroom reminded me of a rest stop I used in Woonsocket Rhode Island. Never again Ches Del. Robert Irvine get down there ASAP!!Nice people who are trying to do a good job but are failing miserably.
