“Yum”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Had the Marseilles and Constantinople. Both delicious. What was even better was the cheesecake made in house. Quadruple choc cheesecake and choc chip, candied bacon choc cheesecake were phenomenal. Love this place.

“Lookin for a big [--] tasty sandwich? Go to Chops deli!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

If you have a healthy appetite for a crazy good sandwich then this is THE place to eat. They also have a good variety of soups, sides and desserts and my family goes often. My only complaint is that it's always freezing in there. So bring your sweater and get your grub on.

“Great sandwiches & friendly staff”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We used a restaurant.com deal and decided to try this deli. So glad we did and will definitely return. I liked the Monaco with lemon pepper sliced chicken. My husband preferred the Jackson (he tasted and didn't like my sandwich as much). Delicious tomato and basil soup on a chilly day, with fresh chunks of tomato and onion.

“Intriguing combinations”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Chop's Deli is a wonderful break from the unimaginative sandwich menus of the world. With a host of great combinations that blend varieties of meats, cheeses and original sauces everyone should find a sandwich that intrigues and pleases. This is one of the two best sandwich restaurants in Wilmington. Additions to the menu of original and creative sandwiches include a variety of salads, homemade soups and traditional sandwich choices. My advice is to go with one of the many signature sandwiches. The value is outstanding.

Chop's is a counter service style restaurant with tables inside and out. Along with the great offerings is a staff that enjoys serving great food. One of the staffers made a point to visit everyone and ask how their experience is going. It is always a good sign that a very busy and successful business takes the time to get feedback from new and regular patrons.

Don't miss visiting Chop's Deli!

“Best sandwich ever!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This place is amazing - best sandwiches I have ever had. We called in here for a late lunch and decided to share a sandwich between the two of us, it was absolutely delicious and loaded with meat and filling. The service was great too. The next day we were leaving Wilmington to head back to Charlotte and as we had enjoyed our sandwich so much we decided to get two to go. We were very impressed that the guy at the till rememberd us from the day before and even rememberd my husbands name. We had a bit of a chat about music and other stuff whilst waiting for our order. Again, we were not disappointed with our sandwiches which we ate later when we stopped for a break.

Great service, great food and great value for money. If you are in Wilmington then definately give Chops Deli a try!
