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.

I had the "Snellville" sandwich for lunch and it may have been the best deli sandwich I've ever eaten. Prices were a little on the high side but our server was very helpful and attentive. Busy and energetic lunchtime atmosphere. We'd definitely eat there again.

Place is kinda just thrown together inside. Not a great seating arrangement. Waitress was terrible. Couldn't remember our order. Don't order the sweet tea! It's horrible. You're in the south, please have decent sweet tea or take it off your menu. And, no I don't want your mint infused whatever either. Potato salad was bland. For 2 people to have... More

Chops is one of the only places where I order something new each time, and I consistently love it each time. Locals know this is the place to go for fresh, delicious, and creative eats. The staff is friendly and service is great. Try the mint sweet tea - so refreshing!
