Which Wilmington restaurants offer delivery other than pizza and Chinese food?

Paul Stephen


2014 UPDATE: This question comes up over and over again. Paul Stephens, the StarNews food writer, says: “All Star Subs is gone, and Pita Delite is down to the one location on S. College Road. Some area foodies like Surfside Express as a general restaurant delivery service: http://www.surfsidexpress.com.

“MegaMaki delivers sushi in the downtown area. Chili’s has added delivery service as well, but according to their website there’s a $125 minimum.”

PREVIOUS UPDATE: Since we answered this question in November 2010, there have been quite a few changes. Paul Stephen address the changes in the first part, and we kept the old answer by Robby Nelms as it was in the second part.

Let us know in the Comments below if we missed anybody.


OK, lets begin with some eliminations:

Port City Takeout is gone

Fifth Street Seafood is gone

And then one change:

17th St. Deli is now called On A Roll. Different owners, different menu, but the address and phone number are the same.

Now for the additions:

Tandoori Bites


(910) 794-4545

Pita Delight (2 locations)


317 S College Rd, (910) 392-0028; 5916 Carolina Beach Rd., (910) 799-6692.

All Star Subs


(910) 313-6111.

Bowman’s Seafood


(910) 458-6292

911 North Lake Park Blvd., Carolina Beach [Map this].

Might as Well Bar & Grill


(910) 228-5365

250 Racine Drive

Terrazzo Trattoria (limited range, call and ask)


(910) 509-9400



Making dinner can be something of a chore. Sure, the kitchen can sometimes be soothing, but after a long day of working or holiday food preparation, the idea of a relaxing evening away from the stove and the accompanying work that involves, is all too inviting. Unfortunately, delivery food is usually the same old hum drum Chinese or plain old pizza. While nothing’s really wrong with either of these choices, there is something nice about having some selection when it comes to delivery dining. Just as with any delivery service, there are costs and delivery ranges that are unique to each establishment (and, always remember to tip your delivery driver). Here in the Port City, there are a number of excellent choices when it comes to food delivery services — and a couple that cater to many tastes, delivering food from numerous restaurants.

Here’s a list of a few, and let us know if you have some we’ve left out.

Jimmy John’s

(910) 763-5788

120 Market St., Wilmington [Map this]

(910) 796-3200

2804 College Road, Wilmington [Map this]

17th Street Deli

(910) 343.1722

125 Grace St., Wilmington [Map this]

Surfside Takeout Express (check website for current restaurant listings)

(910) 547-8883



Why is there such a lack of good ethnic food in Wilmington, aside from sushi restaurants and fast-food Chinese?

Which fast-food and sit-down restaurants in the Wilmington area offer kids nights?
