I've been going to the Salt Works ever since I was a young boy. Great hot dogs and chili. It's a must stop every time I come to Wilmington.

it's rare to find a gem like this and where the owner operator is actually the grill man serving up dishes like they do. phenomenal food and service. BOB is the man, no other way to put it. great breakfast and lunch. love the burgers!!! but be sure you're hungry. lol

Stumbled on this little restaurant and stopped for lunch. Small selection but exceptional taste and prices. Everything's like good ol home cookin! Missed breakfast but heard it's even better than lunch! You'll drive right by if you're not paying attention so make a point of looking it up and eating here!

In the way of hotdogs, worth the stop! If you like hotdogs and want a really good one, with that "old fashioned" feel of American food, this will please you.

I have been to this place 30+ times and it's always all good! Good quick and fresh. They get busy sometimes but are pretty fast at getting things out to tables...staff is always super nice

The Original Salt Works is one of the best places to eat in Wilmington. Everything I've ever eaten here, whether it's for breakfast or lunch is always cooked perfectly. The staff is friendly, and while the food isn't the fanciest it's always tasty

Very slow service. Waited a while to be waited on and receiving my food. I think it is a bit overpriced on some items on the menu for what you received.

My wife and I shared a double cheeseburger today with rings. Reminded me of burgers 50 years ago. Excellent!

Take advantage of the lunch specials and get the best double cheeseburger in town! Big, juicy, any toppings you want.....and plenty of fries or rings!!!! It's the original.
