Our family enjoyed lunch at P.T.'s Olde Fashioned Grill. The french fries are wonderful and there is burger flavor for everyone. I was delighted they had Pepsi products so I could get Mountain Dew! The restaurant was packed with locals and college students. Just the place when you don't want to dress up or have seafood.

As we were entering, we were told by some other guests that this was the "best burger" in Wilmington. While that might be true, they certainly are not the best for much else. My finance had a salad that was no better or worse than anywhere else, my fiance's daughter had the burger and it also was no better or... More

One of our family favorites when we are in town. The 8 oz burger and seasoned fries will have you leaving with a smile on your face! Worth the wait if there is a line as it moves fast and there are many takeouts.

The burgers are just mouthwatering amazing. Super juicy and delicious. It honestly looked like it was majority run by college students, but they know how to make burgers!! They were are super friendly and gave legit suggestions. They have a number of different types of burgers, but the best seemed to come from the plain and simple classic cheeseburger.

Go here often, really, every time have been pleased with service and food. Just a little unhappy with the median they recently put in on Market street, which causes you to only be able to exit North and have to travel a distance to uturn if traveling south on Hwy 17.

I had a craving for a good burger and a friend recommended PTs. It did not disappoint. The food was good and we sat on the patio and ate, made it even better. Wait staff was attentive and greeted us with a smile. If you are tired of the run-of-the-mill burger chains, head out to PTs for a local favorite.

Their burgers are char grilled and the fries are hand cut and fresh. The outside patio is great on nice days. Very quick service!

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) the really... 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.
