Best Burger in Wilmington

Looking for a great burger, southern style. Anyone know of any good restaurants other than national chains that have them? Thanks.

  1. Outside the chains, one of the best around is PT's Grille. They have two locations. Kohls is pretty good as well. They have flat, flying saucer burgers which I happen to like. Salt Works on Oleander has pretty good ones as well, but they're a bit smaller....very southern though.

      Have not tried PT's yet, but have heard that their burgers are really good. Do not care for Two Guys Grille at all. How about Katy's Great Eats? I hear they have some awesome burgers.

    2. I've heard that Cubbies has some good burgers- true or not? I seem to remember hearing that they were in the top three in Wilmington.

        1. I agree that PT's is top!

          I have also had a very good burger at Cubbie's in Monkey junction - total hole in the wall, but nice friendly little place run by a family, and so cheap! There are also a few locations.

          The burgers at Two Guys do not stack up, at all. They do win for cheesesteaks though...

            I like Cubbies when I am down there I like the hole in the wall atmosphere though.

              I go to the one on Fountain Drive, but there are a few locations, I think. (4544 Fountain Drive) I can't get onto the website right now for some reason... but they list the locations.

              The one on Military Cutoff is nice too (1437 Military Cutoff).
