New Castle, Del.- The DogHouse Sandwich Shoppe
This has been one of our favorite (well one of my favorite) places to stop on our travels North. The DogHouse is a local institution since the 1950’s and is still just about the same as it was back then.
The menu is simple. Dogs, burgers, cheese steaks, fresh turkey sandwiches, or pizza. If you stop during lunch, which starts about 10 am and runs till 4 pm (when dinner starts) you will most likely have to wait for a seat which is counter seating only. BUT the wait is worth it.
On this stop mine was a chili cheese dog, fries and a root beer. In the past we have tried a variety of dog combinations and the cheese steaks. I have never seen anyone order a turkey sandwich.
So if you find yourself traveling north on US Rt.13 in New Castle Del. after your sales tax free shopping spree, stop for a couple dogs at the Dog House.
