A judge has issued a ruling in a food fight pitting two well-known Delaware restaurants against each other.

The Charcoal Pit is an institution among many Delawareans, known for its hamburgers and milkshakes.

The equally popular Claymont Steak Shop opened a second site in 2015 next to the Charcoal Pit, which lost a bidding war for the property on Concord Pike in Wilmington.

After the steak shop opened, customers and large delivery trucks began driving over the neighboring Charcoal Pit property.

After Charcoal Pit's owners erected a fence, the steak shop owners sued, claiming there is an implied easement allowing employees, customers and vendors access to northbound Concord Pike.

The judge ruled this week that no easement exists, and that Charcoal Pit was within its rights to construct the fence.
