Previous reviewers are right: it's a mom-and-pop in an urban area (seems a little sketch kinda), food is good, service is fast, locals love the place, bill is surprisingly low, CASH ONLY. The place was hopping the weekend I was there. Servers would zip by...More

We were staying close by and the front desk suggested Libby's. Honestly, we didn't go anywhere else all week except Sunday as they were closed. The staff were pleasant, FAST and correct. You absolutely cannot beat the price either. They obviously have a long history...More

The title say's it all. Bring some quarters to feed the meter. The food is great. I always get the grits, turkey sausage and sunny side up eggs. Friendly staff, bottomless coffee, reasonable prices. Great place to stop if you have a long day day...More

This is a small, hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant. Not in the best part of town - no need to avoid, just be aware of your surroundings. The food is delicious; home-style cooking. Waitresses are friendly and helpful. Prices are cheap (example: coffee is only 85...More

We ate here on the recommendation of TripAdvisor. Even though it is a popular local downtown spot we were seated right away. Tasty homestyle breakfast and excellent prices. Fantastic service too by our waitresses. We definitely would dine here again when we are in Wilmington!

We stopped over on our trip from Philadelphia to D.C.. The restaurant is a down-to-earth a local neighborhood spot. It looks like everybody knows everybody (apart from us :-)). The food is tasty, portions are huge., the staff overall friendly. But the place itself is...More
