Chops Deli

I don't know about other people, but for us, there comes a time towards the end of vacation when we are sick of dining out, tired of big meals, ready to be at home eating a salad, or just not eating for a day or two. If we eat "fancy" it seems big. If we eat "casual" it's big because the portions are big. Back in May when we were in Wilmington, NC and near the end of vacation, we were food-ed out! Fortunately, we found a deli with soups and sandwiches and that's where we ate our last few meals.
The deli: Chops Deli. There are a couple locations in Wilmington. We ate 2 lunches and 1 dinner from Chops Deli. The first time was for lunch after walking along the River Walk. I liked the interesting meat and cheese and topping combinations plus the sandwich was a perfect size for me. SP liked the soups and being able to get healthy-ish sandwiches (multi-grain bread, nice spring lettuce mix, etc). Plus, he could get a nice salad. The other plus: it wasn't pricey and we were just as satisfied as after a "fancy" meal.

SP liked the Manhattan Clam Chowder (above photo) and the Plymouth Sandwich (Smoked Turkey Breast, Havarti, Thinly Sliced Granny Smith Apples, and Homemade Cranberry Relish on Multigrain):
He also liked the Monaco (Lemon Pepper Chicken, Mozzarella, Spring Mix, Tomato, and Homemade Tomato Pesto Mayo on 3 Cheese Semolina):
My favorite was the Malmo (Homemade Pimento Cheese, Black Forest Ham, Maple Glazed Chicken, Tomato, Red Onion and Homemade Cajun Remoulade on Multigrain). I got the remoulade on the side. This is one of my favorite sandwiches, ever. To my surprise, I really liked the remoulade and I didn't find it too spicy.
I also tried, and like the La Plata (Black Forest Ham, Smoked Bacon, Baby Swiss, and Honey Mustard on Country White). No photo, though, just like no photo of the salad he ordered. By that last meal, not only was I food-ed out, but I was tired of taking photos of food, especially when for our last meal we got take out and ate in the hotel.

Definitely a good choice for lunch or dinner if you're in Wilmington, NC.
