For our 1st trip to Wilmington, we asked people in Raleigh for recommendations of places to eat. More than 3 people all told us to go to PT's Grille and boy, were they right! It's so old-fashioned you go to the counter to place your order before sitting down. You can sit in the A/C during the summer or enjoy... More

Their burgers have become a go to if you're pretty hungry. They are filling and generally cooked very well. I got the chicken once and it was pretty dry but to be fair chicken is much tougher to cook than beef. So I 100 percent recommend burger here and you won't regret it.

PTS has hand cut french fries that are truly addicting. Add fresh made to order burgers and beer specials and you have a winner. Their chicken sandwich is also fantastic. Vegetarian in your group? No worries! They have salads, black bean burgers and veggie burgers. We eat here several times a month. Never a bad meal.

Stopped here on a quick trip to Wilmington on advice from a local. He suggested the chicken sandwich which is what I went with. Lots of toppings choices and everything comes with hot, fresh fries. Super fast service and everything was tasty! What's not to like?!?!

Every time we have gone to PT's it has been a great meal. love taking the grandchildren there. Great burgers and fries, better than what I could make at home. Always casual, with super friendly staff. '

Called in take out thinking that a grilled cheese was one of those things that no restaurant could mess up. I was WRONG. PT's took a hamburger bun, slapped couple pieces of cheese on it and heated up on grille. I've never seen such an awful attempt at making a grilled cheese sandwich. It had absolutely no flavor, was cold... More

Stopped for a late lunch and enjoyed the food. I had the BLT which was served Ina tosted hoggie bun. It was very good. It looked like they were trying to decide if they were a cafe or a bar. Hanging a few beer signs really does not create any kind of an atmosphere.

Not the healthiest food choice as the bag is generally dripping with grease, but if you're ok taking on the calories this is a nice clean simple burger. The chicken was a little dry I'd definitely go for the burger again though.
