So Many Choices!

I had checked out menu and reviews prior to our trip to Wilmington. After seeing the variety of sandwiches and great reviews, we had to check Chops Deli out! I ordered the Plymouth, and it was very good. I will definitely go back when in Wilmington again.

When we arrived in Wilmington from N.J. , we asked a local on the street where to go,for a good sandwich, he said without hesitation Chops Deli. We could not believe the menu, and so creative with the sandwich names and the ingredients. Well, we could not believe how delicious a sandwich could be!!! You won't be disappointed give Chops...

I stopped at a Java City for tea one night and asked what are some things I would want to see/do in Wilmington as a visitor. I was told Chops Deli was a must. So I went for lunch the following day. Interesting menu of sandwiches with all types of ingredients and combinations. I do not get to have pulled... More

I had stopped by their new Wrightsville location on opening day and was disappointed but overlooked it because they were new. Stopped by today and my favorite Chicago was just as great as ever. Love that place and their sandwiches are very unique. I do however agree with some other folks regarding the bread...why the change? As they say, if... More

We were in town visiting friends who suggested coming here. I am glad we did. I got the (Plymouth) I believe it what it was called. It was turkey/cranberry warm goodness. They also had NC beer. Everyone loved the food they got. Large portions. Friendly service, I think from what must have been the owner from the articles I read... More

I have read a lot of reviews about this place so decided to try the one in Monkey Junction. Had the Club Wrap with bread instead of the tortilla and a cup of soup with a drink. Its was over $17.00, which I still cannot figure out why (the drink cups are smaller than medium drink cups anywhere else you... More

I'm just saying that people should not change the quality of the food because many people will be upset. The bread has changed and I am kind of upset because the food has completely changed.

I love this place! And now with 3 locations, you can get your fix at any point. They offer fresh made sandwiches and salads using boar's head deli meats and locally made bread. The portions are large and served with chips and a pickle spear. If you'd like, you can swap out the chips for a side of one of... More
