Ms. Pat’s Wings is a locally owned soul food joint that has a basic exterior and interior, but plenty of delicious home cooking to go around. Located on the outskirts of downtown Wilmington, in a quieter area that’s rarely explored by visitors, this almost secretive spot is a decent option for delicious southern cuisine with no frills, but plenty of flavor.

The interior of Ms. Pat’s Wings is simple and clean, albeit basic, with an array of folding tables and chairs that are spread out throughout the small dining area. Where Ms. Pat’s Wings shines, however, is the food, which is cooked with love in batches, and served with a smile by the friendly staff. Every day has a new limited, but tempting selection of options, which includes the traditional wings of course, snack-sized fish bites, and a few sandwiches. Patrons will want to pay attention to the rotating specials board, which includes southern main dishes like chicken BBQ, as well as a host of comfort food side dishes, like fried okra, mac and cheese, slaw, green beans, and rice and gravy. Always delicious, despite (or perhaps because of) its simple atmosphere, Ms. Pat’s Wings is a unique destination for budget-friendly soul food at its most authentic.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
