17th St. Deli & Grill is opening today at 2321 S. 17th St., the former home of Priddyboy’s Sandwich Grill.
 
Founded in Wilmington in 1994 by David W. Priddy, the last of the local Priddyboy’s locations closed earlier this year.
 
These days, 17th St. Deli & Grill owner Sam Hizam is putting a new twist on things with a breakfast and lunch menu that he said provides a little bit of everything.
 
“Sandwiches are popular in this area, but we think breakfast will do well, too,” Hizam said.
 
Breakfast offerings include egg and omelette platters for under $6, buttermilk pancakes and French toast, and a number of egg sandwiches and wraps.
 
A deli case will hold a rotating selection of fresh salads, available in various sizes for quick grab-n-go service. With a background in Mediterranean cuisine, Hizam said the menu includes some Mediterranean influences and specialties such as gyros, falafel sandwiches, chicken shawarma and chicken kabobs, with side items such as homemade hummus, baba gannouj and tabbouleh.
 
Deli sandwiches are prepared with Boar’s Head meats, and hot sandwiches include Philly cheesesteaks, chicken Parmesan and Italian grilled chicken. There are several burgers on the menu, including a veggie burger and a fish burger, all served with fries for $5 or less. Daily burger specials include a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a soda for $6.49 and a cheeseburger deluxe with fries and a soda for $4.99. 
 
Hizam has updated the 35-seat, counter-service restaurant with new flooring and fresh paint, and he's installed natural gas to power his new kitchen equipment.
 
17th St. Deli & Grill will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Carry-out and catering are available.
