Eating in…Rehoboth Beach, The Charcoal Grill, Restaurant, Full Bar, Eat In, Carry Out, Catering, Barbecue, New Location, Review, Delaware Beaches



Wendy and Tracy went from having The Charcoal Deli to a full restaurant and bar called The Charcoal Grill.  They are now located at 19287 Miller Rd., Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  You will find right on Rt. 1 or Coastal Highway, next to the Food Lion.  Tel. 302-260-9615. 

Their motto is also the same:  “We Grill While You Chill.”  You can find their menu at  The old address is still on that menu.  Don’t worry about it. 

As we enter our Summer Season at the Delaware Beaches there is nothing better than good barbecue.  I love to barbecue myself using charcoal.  At The Charcoal Grill they slow cook over a charcoal grill.  The taste is the best.

Good barbecue cannot be faked.  You need to cook it with love; nurture it until it is just ready.

We decided to visit The Charcoal Grill on Saturday evening.  They are open 7 days a week. I can see it becoming a local’s hang out.  Both Wendy and Tracy are very friendly and fun.

The restaurant has gone through a complete renovation.  Lively colors let you know you are entering a restaurant that is relaxed and casual. 

On one side of the restaurant, plenty of seatings.  On the other side you will find the bar, which is small but very comfortable.  They have used their space well; besides the bar there are high tables for dining, as well.


I was so pleasantly surprised to see how good it looked.  Background music was playing and it was crowded.

There is plenty of parking and as the season gets into high gear, parking is a bit of a test of patience in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.  So, I am giving you a head up because The Charcoal Grill is worth it.

Almost everything is made in-house, except hot dogs and a few other things.  They are very well aware of gluten allergies.  Their barbecue sauces and rubs are gluten free.  If you do have a question, please talk to either one of them.

My husband, who has the gluten allergy, decided to have the baby backs with potato salad and cole slaw.  Corn bread would have accompanied them, but that was not gluten free.


I had the combination of chicken and baby backs, accompanied with cole slaw and their veggies of the day.


I tasted the veggies first.  They were cooked to perfection, and so buttery.  The ribs were amazing.  I am not kidding.  They were crispy with the sauce adding that perfect blend.  The chicken fell off the bones.  It was that good.

These ladies know how to cook.  They also offer salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, dinners to go and deli take out.  The desserts are made from scratch.

They are planning on serving breakfast on week-ends soon; but not yet.

Check them out and tell me if you liked it.

Oh, I almost forgot….they offer catering.

Have a good one!!

    I’ve been to the Charcoal Deli and now Grill, several times. The food is outstanding.

    I highly recommend it ( especially the Canons and the Pit Turkey Club ?)

    Thanks so much for your comments. It really was good. I’ll have to try your selections. I think they will certainly do well in that location. Parking and delicious food, a winning combination.

    We have lived in Rehoboth for 5 years now and not a better place exist in this tourist town for a good honest meal. The service is friendly and it feels like “our place” if you know what I mean.
