Holy moly this was good stuff

Didn't really know what to expect because it was such a small place. Ordering was a little confusing but that's because we were so tired I think. The food was amazing and fast! The hot dogs were just right and the roast beef sandwich was to die for! I wish we would have seen (or been told about... read more

First time at PT's after living in Wilmington for 5 1/2 years. Ordered an old fashioned burger for me and a PT's burger for my wife, to go. The woman at the counter was helpful and friendly, but also quick about processing the order. It was pretty crowded and there was a bit of a line to order, so I... More

Hot, fresh to order, burgers and fries. The staff accommodating and just plain eager to serve at this 17th Street location. Warm and inviting burger joint worthy of a visit. Big Burger, Chicken Sandwich, hot fries, and tea all for near $15! It's no wonder patrons line up to be served! Thank you.

This is as close as it gets to cooking out at home -- though I could never get fries this good at home. The burgers are cooked fresh to order on a grill with your choice of fixins. This is a two-fisted burger, but they have plenty of napkins on the table there. Really good burgers.

I love P.T.'s grille! You order by filling out a short ticket form and you can order drinks at the counter. In addition to soda they have draft beers. But the hotdog is the reason I go! It's a large all beef hot dog they cut in half before grilling. It's delicious! I hear the burgers are great too, but... More

I ate at another location but it's the same set up. As a first timer I had to learn to stop at the counter and order my food and beverage on a slip of paper then go find a seat. When it's ready, a runner will come onto the floor and call your name. Known for their burgers, it is... More
