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)

Chops is a hip place to eat. They have daily specials that are excellent and inventive. The sandwich size is huge and always fresh.

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

When planning a visit to Wilmington, my first order of business is to identify when I can fit a visit into Chops, preferably when I arrive. It was originally recommended to me by a friend who lived in Wilmington for a long time and it is the one place I return to every visit. Sandwiches are amazing, none will disappoint,... More

We were tired and hungry, having just finished one race, and preparing for another the next day. Our sandwiches were outstanding, and the fruit salad was fresh. I had the Jackson (Peppermill smoked turkey and fixings on a baguette), and my husband had the Marseille (Maple-glazed chicken and fixings on a baguette). They were perfect! Even though we were there... More

I used to live in Wilmington and I HAD to dine here before leaving. I miss the sandwiches and staff. My favorite meal?... The Marseille with the daily special Mac & Cheese. I frequented the monkey junction location but sitting outside at the downtown Chops is always a treat.

My boyfriend and I always get the chicken salad sandwich (no tomatoes because we can be picky) and it's absolutely wonderful. I've had other items before that are equally delicious but we always go back for the chicken salad.
