The Philly Deli celebrated their 39th anniversary in August 2018. Their first store was located in Hanover Center—the oldest shopping center in Wilmington. Ever since, two more Philly Delis have been added: one at Porters Neck and one at Monkey Junction.

The Philly Deli started out by importing all of their steak meat and hoagie rolls straight from Philadelphia. It’s a practice they maintain to this day. Come visit! 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday – Thursday. 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday – Saturday.
