Ask a Wilmington local where to go for a casual lunch in Downtown Wilmington, and chances are they will list Chop’s Deli as one of their favorite options. Known for exceptional deli sandwiches, salads and soups, Chops Deli has gained a devout local following for fresh ingredients and made-to-order sandwiches that are dished out daily.
The menu is relatively small, but is oh-so-mouthwatering with a wide variety of cold and grilled sandwiches that are sure to appease meat eaters and hungry patrons. Favorites on the sandwich menu include the Bordeaux, a combination of rare roast beef, French brie, red onion, and homemade mushroom gray on French baguette, and the southern-inspired Malmo with homemade pimento cheese, black forest ham, maple glazed chicken, and homemade Cajun remoulade. Newcomers will want to try out the signature sandwiches, which is where the more unique sandwich creations can be found, while repeat guests might want to stick to the old favorites, like the club wrap, the fresh deli salads, and the always-rotating selection of soups.
All of the sandwiches are wonderfully overflowing, and patrons who fall in love with the fresh meats and cheese can even order them by the pound to enjoy at home. Always fresh and always satisfying, Chop’s Deli is Wilmington’s ultimate spot for sandwich heaven.
