Man this place can make a great sandwich! They are huge, full of primo meats and cheeses and you can really tell. It's not the cheapest place to eat, but your money here buys you quality food, and you really can tell the difference when you eat here vs somewhere else where everything is fried to add "flavor". Not here... More

If you like creative sandwiches, then this is a must try place for you. Lots of selections to choose from...you won't be disappointed with any selection. The sandwiches are quite large, so sharing with a companion is an option and suggested.

We ate there yesterday and the staff was great. The waitress was attentative and accommodating, which was nice considering we had our three young (8,4,&2) children with us. I had the Tripoli and it was excellent. Will be coming back again.

We had good deli sandwiches made with Boars Head coldcuts on fresh bread. Waitress was very attentive. We had our dog with us and she even brought her a bowl of water (table outside)

My wife and I went shopping after Christmas in Wilmington NC. We were on our way home and decided to stop downtown for a late lunch. I had remembered friends saying that I had to try this deli, downtown. We parked in the free hour garage and walked to the restaurant. It was about half crowded and we sat at... More

Finally got to Chops after living here for 6 years. Last Sat. was a very cold day and with my out of town guest we needed a warm haven. Chops fit the bill perfectly. My friend wanted to have her first ever pulled pork sandwich, which we shared on a baguette. We started with soup, me the New England Clam... More
