It's hard to get too excited about a deli, isn't it? I mean you're talking about bread and lunchmeat, right? Yeah, ok. But Chops is a really good deli serving really good food. I'm not a deli-snob, but I can taste Grade B turkey slices...More

First time here. Although it took some time to waited on (we sat outside), once our waitress Tabitha arrived, all went well. She was professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu/daily offerings Food is fresh and very good. Sandwiches and Slaw are very good choices.

The Chops Deli in Wrightsville Beach has an expanded menu and there are gluten free items available there. My daughter is gluten free and had eaten there numerous times. Salads, omlets, and meat dishes are options.
