DelawareOH365: C Dee’s Lil’ Store Pizza & Subs, Kilbourne

C Dees Lil Store Pizza and Subs in Kilbourne Ohio
C Dee s Lil Store Pizza and Subs epitomizes that classic adage that great things come from those non-descript eateries you find along the unexpected roads.

It is an unassuming location, nestled quietly along State Route 521 in the rural Delaware County community of Kilbourne, Ohio, but the pizza pies are anything but quiet and unassuming from C Dee’s Lil’ Store Pizza and Subs.

The classic pizza shop is located inside one of Kilbourne’s only commercial establishments remaining as it shares space with the convenience store along State Route 521 across from the church and just east of the old Kilbourne school location.

our meal at C Dees Lil Store Pizza and Subs included stromboli, sub, and soft pretzel.
The soft pretzel, stromboli, and the signature pot roast sandwich was our meal this visit to the Lil Store.

The wife and I began our meal with Giant Gourmet Soft Pretzel ($3.95) which comes with a the choice of a cream-cheese filled or a jalapeno filled with mild-pepper jack cheese. It was a solid start to the meal with an exceptional blend of the head of jalapeno and the cheese to keep it from being too over-powering.

I’m a sucker for anything that says “signature” so I had to order Dee’s Signature Pot Roast Sub ($8.95) which features sliced pot roast, hot banana peppers, lettuce, tomato, and Dee’s special horseradish mayo. It was good and definitely would get it again, though not sure that it was on the level as a signature dish as I expect it to be.

We shared a Deluxe Stromboli ($11.95) which includes pepperoni, sausage, and cheese and this could have been on the level of being a signature dish for C Dee’s Lil’ Store Pizza and Sub. The dough wasn’t over powering and it allowed the flavors of the ingredients to come through — something too many pizza shops have forgotten it seems.
