“WOW!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Today was my 3rd trip to Chops Deli after finding it on Tripadvisor. It has become a must stop location on any trip I take to Wilmington. The food is phenomenal and the friendly personal service is awesome. Twice I have eaten the Amsterdam sandwich. It is a pot roast with cheddar and homemade mushroom gravy on a sourdough kaiser roll. Holy Cow it is great. To top it off, they had a pumpkin cheesecake topped with pecans and bacon. The tea they serve is unlike any I have ever had. It is your southern sweet tea with a hint of spearmint. I will be returning and telling all of my friends.

“awesome Dtown..MonkeyJunc not so much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

First of all, I want to start out with I love Chops downtown. Great sandwiches; however, a few months ago I took my family to the Monkey Junction Chops and after we were almost done eating the one employee that was behind the line while our food was being made, I guess his shift was over. He proceded to sit out right by the soda machine and RUB SALVE ON HIS FRESHLY TATTED INK ON HIS LEG. I'm all for tattoes, and Im sure his A&D ointment needed to be smeared on his fresh ink. BUT, NOT right 8 feet away from me while I'm eating. Sorry. I think somewhere that might be a health code violation. Just sayin'....
I will be making some tasty Boars Head sandwhiches at home for a while.

The Children's Museum recommended Chops. My wife, daughter, and two grandchildren were not dissapointed. Fabulous sandwiches & BBQ! P.S. I recommend "The Wilmington...and we'll be back!"
