Don’t let the busy location along College Road, or the simple black and white sign, fool you - Wilmington Taco Factory & American Grill is the UNCW student-approved location for fast, yummy fare on a budget.

The casual eat-in and take-out restaurant is easy enough to navigate. Diners will head to the counter, fill out the slip-of-paper menu, and then wait for their Mexican or American influenced meal to arrive. Options include tacos, quesadillas, and sandwiches like pimento cheese, burgers, hot dogs, and even meatloaf and roast pork, and patrons can essentially “build their own” meal with a wealth of options and add-ons. Popular creations at the Taco factory include fish tacos, shrimp tacos, or chicken or cheese quesadillas, which can be personalized with a nice helping of Pico, sour cream, salsa, Jalapenos, or even olives or cucumbers. Patrons with a burger or sandwich craving can also add on the toppings, like slaw, chili, cheese, and pickles, and / or can opt for a side of slaw, fries or yummy fried okra. All in all, it’s a fun way to order, and it ensures everyone gets exactly what they want.

Best of all, with budget-friendly flavors and world-class cuisine, Wilmington Taco Factory & American Grill can cater to virtually every crowd – from college students to foodies.

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.
