“Best place for lunch in Wilmington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Boars Head meats always make a great sandwich and these guys really know how to put together fresh ingredients that compliment the meats. Go at lunch with a friend & you can split a sandwich and each get a side for $12.

“Good Food & Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

An excellent and varied lunch menu. Large selection of sandwich, soup or salad. Everything has a fresh home made quality. Most items are meat based, but they offer some veggie items as well. Chops gets very busy during lunch hour. It's very popular with locals. Service is friendly and efficient. Portions are generous, and a good value.

“Worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

My co-workers and I go to Chops about once a week. Great atmosphere and the food is good. Yes, it's expensive for "just a sandwich". If you're looking for a $5 sandwich, this is not the place you're looking for. If you're looking for a sandwich made with quality meats and locally baked bread, then this is your place.

On average, a sandwich, chips, and drink will run you ~$10, but the sandwiches aren't 4 slices of meat and toasted. Most sandwiches are at least 2" thick and toasted. And if you don't like the bread that comes with the sandwich you want, let them know and they'll change the bread.

Personally, I don't like any of the condiments on the sandwiches, so I get them dry, and I have, on occasion, had custom-made sandwiches. Yes, they will custom-make any sandwich.

If you want to beat the rush, get there before 11:30.

“So Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Stopped into Chops Deli today after reading reviews. This is a wonderful place to get a delicious sandwich. The chicken salad is to die for. My 4 year old ordered the turkey with cheese kids sandwich and it was a good portion. I especially liked the fact that they make their own lemonade and orange juice which is refreshing. Tomatoes and lettuce on the sandwich was fresh. You could easily split a sandwich and be satisfied.
