Quaint, family run sandwich shop. Everything, I mean everything is home made by the owner. Order & go, or order & sit. Extremely friendly staff, and priced reasonably. This is NOT your "Subway" sandwich shop. If you visit, be sure to try the "Beef on Weck", my favorite. However, you will not be disappointed, with anything you choose from their... More

I love this sandwich shop near UNCW having been there several times! You can't go wrong with any of their sandwiches on fresh in house made bread or the homemade chips with a side of ranch ! My wife and I enjoy sharing a sandwich which they split, put on separate plates with a nice share of chips on each.... More

It does not look like much from the outside, but behold your tastebuds will beg to differ. They have homemade potato chips coleslaw, and potato salad. I had the soprano on a wreck fill. Fresh baked roll coated with dried onions. Everything was simply scrumptious. The bake cookies yum and everything I tasted was awesome. Highly recommend this deli for... More

We had a Reuben and the signature sliced beef sandwiches. Both were excellent, we will definitely be repeat customers. Atmosphere is not great, but food is the draw at this deli. Chips were nice but don't agree with reviews that say they are terrific. Overall we recommend this deli!

I have to say I normally am not excited to eat at a sandwich shop as a vegetarian... However I loved this little place! The veggie sandwich was large enough for two, with sundries tomato bread that tasted fresh out of the oven and veggies piled high what isn't to love? Bonus is the fresh homemade chips seasoned perfectly. Just... More

Every time we come to Wilmington, the South College Deli is our 1st stop.Waiting for our beach rental in Wrightsville Beach to become available,we headed here for lunch and as usual the Beef on Weck was outstanding.

South College Deli is a tasty option for lunch or dinner. They have more basic and complex sandwich options. The chicken marsala sandwich was delicious, especially on the salty wreck roll. The turkey club was good as well, and I enjoyed the sundried tomato bread. The homemade chips served with buffalo or regular ranch are also delicious. If you're in... More

Beef on wreck is the only thing I have had here. I consider it a treat every time I have to go into Wilmington. Friendly attentive staff, self serve drinks, and one of the best sandwiches around.

I love roast beef and the Beef On Weck did not disappoint. It is extremely tasty and very filling! The homemade potato chips are amazing with a salt and pepper seasoning and Ranch dressing to dip. The place fills up for lunch and the food takes about 10 - 15 minutes, but SO WORTH the wait!
