Arrived 5 minutes before closing on the first night of our trip the staff accommodated us and made us feel welcome! Sandwiches were great and the prices were very reasonable! We'll be back!

“Bland Philly cheesesteak (Market street location in Porter Neck)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I use to love this place when visiting Wilmington, but the last three times havent been good :( meat was a dry, very bland and not enough cheese to be called a cheesesteak. Overpriced, I prefer the cheesesteak at HWY 55 aka Andy's...not sure if Wilmington has those though.

“a must-go!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We've been to Wilmington 3 times, and driving from Charlotte, we always make sure we stop first at J.Michaels. Delicious cheesesteaks with a ton of melty cheese, great onion rings. Casual atmosphere and quick service. We wouldn't go to Wilmington without stopping there!

“No!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This not your mother's Philly cheesesteaks. Can't believe people really think this quality food. The Porters neck location is always dirty. The wait staff looks like it just got out of prison, or a tattoo factory.
