This Charming General Store In Delaware Is Hiding An Incredible Secret
Delaware’s a state full of small towns, where an old fashioned way of life is still present. Everybody in town knows everybody else, you catch up with your neighbors when you drive past them in your truck, and the corner store is still the place to go to grab your morning coffee and catch up on the town gossip. There’s one charming general store that you’ll pass in the tiny town of St. Georges, where you might expect to grab a sandwich off the griddle, maybe a bag of chips, and be on your way… and you would be dead wrong.
St. George's Country Store is everything a general store normally isn't!
Though it looks quaint and quiet on the outside, if you don't know what you're walking into, you're in for a treat. Head on over to 1 Delaware Street in Saint Georges, Delaware 19733 for the time of your life.
You'll start to get a feeling you're in for something different as you approach the door.
Neon beer signs? Hand painted, musical benches? What's this all about?
And when you walk in, you'll be blown away!

Oh... and if being one of the best places to catch live music in Delaware wasn't enough for this overachieving store, they also serve up unbelievable cajun food.
You won't find a more creative and mouthwatering cajun dish than their chorin ahi tuna with jambalaya! At a General Store? Yup!
And that's just the tip of the iceberg - the food here is so delicious that you won't believe you hadn't stopped in before.
Try some of their signature dishes: jambalaya with a homemade creole sauce, legendary shrimp or crawfish etouffee, and of course (in Delaware tradition) delicious crab cakes. St. Georges Country Store is a popular place for locals to celebrate birthdays, too, because it's always such a great time.
