It's been awhile since I have eaten at LIE; the main reason being the pricing. I love the deli sandwiches which are very comparable to authentic NY deli sandwiches and the potato salads are equally as great. Authentic NY deli food, but unfortunately authentic NY prices as well.

I have been here before at lunch, and decided to give breakfast a try. It did not disappoint. I had a bagel breakfast sandwich. The bagel was obviously fresh made. Top that with bacon, egg, and swiss cheese and you have a winner. It could easily become my morning hangout should I move to the area!

The sandwiches are made fresh, piled high with quality meat and some are served hot. They also have a wide range of sides and also hot meals available.

Since I have lived in Wilmington for the past two years, I have to say I have been at this restaurant at least 20 times. This is one of the best sandwich restaurants I have ever been to, and the customer service is always great!

While vacationing in Wilmington, NC, I had a craving for an authentic NY deli sandwich for lunch. We did a google search and came upon this little out of the way delight. And it was everything it claimed to be. The food was hot and delicious...and plentiful. The breads were fresh, the meats perfect. The place is nothing fancy. There... More

Just an okay place. Food was good but not spectacular and a bit pricey for what you get. Want a good deli go to Chops downtown. You'll get chips w your sandwich and a really big sandwich.

I had lunch here a week ago and was disappointed with big prices for what you get. Better values elsewhere.

Found this by accident. Was visiting a bakery next door and talked to a New Yorker who was in there. He recommended the deli. We went in to have lunch. Had a fried eggplant, roasted red pepper, red onion & provolone sandwich that was excellent. Eggplant had been prepared paper thin and pulled high! Not sure why the reviews about... More

What a lousy restaurant - Stay Away if you want to avoid a stomach upset. All cooked food is sitting in cold trays, looking like it was prepared a week ago and tasting even worse. Cooked food is spooned into a dish then heated in a micro-wave oven. All is tasteless, the "alleged" broiled chicken was hard as shoe-sole leather.... More

LIE is a great sandwich place for lunch. The portions are big & the prices are low. Homemade sandwiches from a great family.
