A reader checked in recently, wondering about the status of Del’s II, a shuttered sandwich shop at Front & Tasker. We swung by there recently, and the space appears quiet indeed.
Love the signage
The space was purchased by Michael Delbuono (hence the name Del’s, we assume) back in 1981, shortly after the completion of I-95 across the street. From the looks of the space, the shop had been operating for about that long, serving breakfast foods and sandwiches to the masses. And from the looks of the exterior, the space hasn’t really been spruced up for decades. Peeking in the windows, the place looks well worn, but seems like it could reopen at a moment’s notice.
Highway across the street
Looking up Front St.
With new construction happening all over Pennsport, this commercial space could indeed have some value if it were cleaned up a little bit. Perhaps a little breakfast/lunch spot, but a little higher end than the luncheonette that closed up shop? Or maybe a southern location for Paesano’s, the delicious sandwich shop with two other locations? Or does somebody in the neighborhood have another idea for this location?
