Zagat, the Google restaurant rating site, named Capriotti’s Bobby as the best meal in Delaware in a 50-state rating.

 The Bobbie is basically Thanksgiving on a sub roll with fresh turkey, dressing and cranberries. The Bobbie is making its way across the nation as Capriotti’s opens up new franchises in states as far way as California. This follows the Bobbie being named as America’s best sandwich in a report by AOL back in 2009.

 In Delaware, other sub shops also offer fresh turkey and the fixins.’

 Capriotti’s is now based in Las Vegas, after a franchisee bought the company. One of the founders of Capriottti’s moved to the gaming mecca and helped establish the sub shop’s largest cluster of stores. The company got its start at a store on Union Street in Wilmington’s Little Italy neighborhood. Capriotti’s recently opened a shop near Christiana Hospital in the Ogletown area after seeing much of its expansion taking place to the west.

 Best and worst grocery chains

 Delaware is home to supermarket chains that according to one publication rank as the worst in the nation. It also has some of the best stores. Topping the worst list, according to the Fiscal Times is Pathmark.

 No. 11 was Acme stores, which is being spun off from owner SuperValu. Acme customers were unhappy with pricing. Food Lion was No. 8, with mediocre scores across the board. A&P was No. 4; Walmart Supercenters came in at second place, getting low scores on service. Pathmark got poor scores in nearly all areas.

Pathmark was spun off from Wakefern cooperative that supplied family owned Shoprite markets. Of late, Shoprite has been on the rise. In a twist of fate, a former Pathmark location south of Newark is now being expanded into a Shoprite in a multi-million dollar project.
