A family passion since 1974, Pete’s Steak Shop in Rehoboth dishes up a lot more than just sandwiches!

October 9, 2018

Viewed from Coastal Highway, Pete’s Steak Shop could be a steak house – or maybe a butcher shop. Or could it be a pizzeria? Look a little closer and you’ll discover that it’s in fact home to some of the best cheesesteaks, pizzas and sandwiches in the Rehoboth Beach area!

Pete’s embodies the quintessential American dream. Greek immigrants Pete and Marika Vasilikos opened Pete’s luncheonette in downtown Wilmington in 1974. Their sons learned the trade as they waited on happy customers and fine-tuned the family’s cheesesteak recipe. The new incarnation of Pete’s Steak Shop in Rehoboth Marketplace center keeps the family legacy alive; expanding the menu to include BBQ, delicious salads, a variety of great-tasting pizzas, some Greek favorites, homemade desserts and of course their signature cheesesteaks that are the best south of Philly. And Pete’s is known for some of the fastest delivery in the area!

The cheesesteaks can be ordered from a choice of seven styles – all built from freshly chipped rib eye beef or tender, roasted chicken. And each sandwich can be decorated – at no extra charge – with your choice of fried or raw onions, lettuce, tomato, mayo, pickles, sweet peppers or their original hot banana peppers, which the pepper cognoscenti affectionately refer to as “long hots.”

In the words of, the pizza at Pete’s is the “sleeper.” In other words, you wouldn’t expect such good pizza from a place that didn’t have it in their name. But there it is: Thick or thin crust pies offered with over 17 topping possibilities! Pizza variations such as Pizzabolis and Calzones add excitement to the lineup.

A huge selection of burgers, sandwiches, gyros, homemade soups, Italian subs, wraps, pastas and even vegetarian dishes round out the menu. Pete’s Steak Shop is known for quick delivery with online ordering for both delivery and pickup. Pete’s “Home of the Ultimate Cheesesteak” is located in the Rehoboth Marketplace at 19287 Miller Road and Coastal Highway. Order online at or call 302-226-3000.
