My hometown of Newark, DE is not a great spot for food (notwithstanding Capriotti's subs for which I get cravings from time to time), but every once in a while a place surprises me. Like the Santa Fe Mexican Grill on Main Street. I think the place mostly caters to heavy margarita drinking by college students, but the food is actually not bad.
At a stop in for lunch around Christmas time, I got a nice bowl of posole with chicken, with an arepa on the side (very small compared to what I'm used to in NYC, but nice and buttery). And Redneckhunter got a good plate of tacos, rice and beans.
