REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (CBS) -- CBS3 SummerFest heads to Rehoboth Beach on Friday and to kick off the festivities, we headed to a restaurant that's become a cultural icon in the area. If you're looking for a slice of Delaware, it's got to be at Grotto Pizza.

The local pizza legend that's known for its unmistakable swirl, upside-down application and unconventional choice of cheese. For beachgoers, it goes down nice and easy. While you can find locations all over the first state -- and some in Maryland and Pennsylvania -- Rehoboth Beach was where it all began in 1960.

Dominick Pulieri, along with his brother-in-law Joe and sister Mary Jean brought their style of pizza to the beach.
