If you are a sandwich lover, you must include South College Deli on your itinerary. We have tried 5 or 6 of their offerings, and every one has been a special treat. As other reviewers have mentioned, the beef on weck is a must for any roast beef fan. My favorite is the cubana: marinated pork, ham, spicy mustard, etc. Service is reasonably fast, considering they don't make your sandwich until you order it. Great whole wheat bread. Homemade chips. This is one of the best sandwich places I've ever visited; they do everything well here. Not fancy, but the food is terrific. Highest recommendation!

This is a must when your in the mood for a fresh Roast Beef sandwich. The rolls are homemade,
the horseradish comes fresh or creamy & the roast beef is piled high for a monster good sandwich. Couple that with some homemade chip & a deli style pickle and your combo is complete. For a former northern boy, this great Deli style restaurant is shades of home.
There are normally some tasty baked good treats for those who have a sweet tooth after the meal.
The prices are fair too.

The beef on a weck with fresh horseradish and their homemade style chips are something you HAVE GOT to try. I'm upset I haven't been there lately because it's just that good. The service is usually pretty speedy and if you go there enough, you notice there are always " the regulars" sitting there enjoying the craftsmanship of their favorite menu items. Hands down it's the best deli I've tried here so far.

I great deli style shop with the best fish sandwiches. The owner and staff are always on point serving good quality food. This is the only place in Wilmington you can get a Haddock sandwich so go try one.

Everything is made to order and the chicken salad is made fresh each day. We like the chicken salad panni bread sandwich with homemade potato chips. They do offer other sides.

It's not fast food, so be patient.
