“Great Food, Bad Service”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We arrived around 830pm on a Sunday night and it was a 30min wait for a party of 2.
Took about 5 minutes before drink order taken. Ordered a margarita and a beer and water which took 10 minutes to receive and never received water.
Came back after 5-10 minutes to take our food order. Food came out quicker then the drinks did.
Had a chicken chimichanga and fish tacos. Both were amazing. After the waitress dropped our food we pretty much didn't see her again until she brought our bill. Both drinks had been out for awhile.
Told by a local that during summer they raise their prices on food and the service is bad because they know tourists are still going to eat there.

“Great mexican food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Dined here with family on our annual vacation and were not disappointed! The chips/salsa are very good and the menu offers great variety (including vegetarian options). The carne asada quesadilla, Tower 7 burrito and veggie fajitas were outstanding. The restaurant is small and popular among locals and visitors, plan to arrive early or late if you have a party larger than 2! They also do great take-out!

“Great Mexican Food!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Texans sometimes can be mexcian food snobs, so I am sometimes hesitant to eat mexican food in other states; however, Tower 7 is great. Ate their with colleagues while in Wilmington on business and had a great meal. The restaurant was very crowded on a Monday night. We got there about 5:30 and it was already packed. Their salsa is wonderful and the fish tacos were great. Everyone in the group got something different and everyone was very happy with it.

“Fantastic Meal! You will LOVE it!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We ate at this restaurant last night and it was outstanding! We had the nachos and fajita wrap and they were both fabulous! Although it is a small restaurant everything was delicious! You must try this restaurant if you are at Wrightsville Beach!

“Good but maybe not worth a long wait”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

On a Thursday night, got there about 7:30p and there was over an hour wait. Managed to get seats at the very small take out bar to get served quicker. Food was pretty good - had the grilled chicken enchiladas which were very good. Another diner had the fish tacos - said they weren't that good - not very much fish, lots of batter and way too much slaw in the tacos. Would eat there again if it wasn't crowded, but wouldn't wait 30-60 minutes to eat there.
