Great salads as well as homemade soups. Everything is homemade. The salads were beautifully filled with bright colored veggies and great greens. I really wanted to return to this restaurant while in Wilmington. I guess it will have to wait until the next trip.

Awesome, dressed up sandwiches made with high quality ingredients. Definitely a must-try if you're in search of a meal of the sandwich variety. It seemed alot of their condiments were house made, which made the food that much more delicious.

A great variety of sandwiches. Also an attached deli where you can buy meats and cheeses. I ordered the Jackson, which was delicious. Everything was very fresh tasting and the mayo that they used had a delicious flavor. Perfect spot for lunch!

Really great pastrami/rye - in this small basic deli tucked away in a small strip mall in the Lowe's/Walmart location.

Not a New York style deli, but still with a varied menu and good service. We were a party of four. Each ordered a different sandwich and each was highly pleased. You won't go wrong.

My friend and I stopped for lunch here as we were sightseeing and walking through downtown Wilmington. My obsession lately has been grilled pimento cheese sandwiches. So far Chop's grilled pimento cheese panini has been the best! True Southern pimento cheese, with fresh tomato and...More

Chops is a great deli to buy meat or sit down and have a sandwich. I had the Reuben and it was delicious. They have two locations in Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach. If you're looking for a great sandwich, they have them.

The Chops Deli in Wrightsville Beach has an expanded menu and there are gluten free items available there. My daughter is gluten free and had eaten there numerous times. Salads, omlets, and meat dishes are options.
