“★ Very Good! Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Being in the Wilmington area on business for 6 weeks and finding a non chain restaurant to dine in has become my travel conquest. While driving to Wrightsville and stopping at Wings (across the street) I noticed a smell in the area that had me gravitating to Tower 7.

I was NOT disappointed in the least. They had a seafood spin on some of your traditional mexican dishes and I highly recommend the yellow fin burrito! The chips and Salsa are even amazing! Lots of drinks (margarita's) to choose from and I know you will not leave hungry.

Friendly staff, great menu and even better food!

“Great Mexican Food - Local and Fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

If you have not tried Tower 7 you are missing the freshest seafood, best carne asada, freshest salsa and awesome guac!! They use local fish, poultry and veggies. They also make their own chips, guac and salsa. Margaritas are also a house specialty.

We have eaten here many times when visiting the beach - and every item we have had is amazingly fresh, tasty and healthy. This is very family friendly, beach friendly and overall people friendly.

The service is also very fresh with local appeal. The best bar tenders, and the servers.....this really is one of my all time favorite places to eat and hang out when we head to the beach.

The tacos range from tuna, blackened tuna, shrimp, carne asada, chicken, pulled pork - served with onion straws or pinto beans or black beans or rice - either corn or flour tortillas. They also have enchiladas, burritos, and chimichangas. The Tower 7 specialties like the barn dance - which melds pulled pork, bacon, chicken, cheese and onion strings - very good....

GIve it a try - you will come back for more!!

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

I was wanting fish tacos and found this place on Tripadvisor. They were very good, but I have had even better at my favorite place in Southport. NC. The service was good, but this place could use some TLC. The sanitation grade was only 91.5. They should do better than that.

“Banging Baja Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you like fish tacos, you will LOVE the Baja Fish Tacos here. They are perfect and delicious! Big pieces of beer battered cod on a bed of cheese and tomatoes and covered with red cabbage and a side of ranch to dip. I prefer the corn tortilla to the flour but that is your choice. These are hands down the BEST fish tacos I have ever had.

“My new fave place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Tower 7 has terrific food. I got the special my last visit which was a fried flounder soft taco. It was delicious! The shrimp tacos I have had in the past are even better. Flavors are bold and fresh and the umbrella drink, can't remember the name of it, was delicious. The salsa is also remarkable. Our server wasn't particularly friendly, though it was a very busy Saturday night. I cannot recommend the food higher. You MUST know a few things before you go. This place gets crowded at lunch and dinner peak times, especially in the summer. It is a loud, high energy place so not a good choice for intimate dinners or for small kids under 2. Also, there is very little parking. If you go off hours, say early dinner before 5 you may snag a great spot behind the building. There is a lot across the street and beside the property but a guy in a lawnchair will charge you. There is limited street parking, again go off hours! Consider walking rather than driving. It is very close to Station One and it is not too far from the Holiday Inn, besides you will need to walk off all that great food and drink!
