 11 Hottest Restaurants in Wilmington, North Carolina

From Carolina shrimp at Dram Yard to big breakfasts at Vicious Biscuit, here’s where to eat in Wilmington

This is the second North Carolina location for the small Southeastern breakfast chain. As one might guess from the name, biscuits are the star of the show here. There’s the Ranchero, a cheddar and jalapeno biscuit with black bean spread, panko-crusted avocado, pico de gallo, spicy remoulade, and a sunny side up egg. The Gravy Train comes with two buttermilk biscuits smothered in maple sausage gravy. There’s also a shrimp and grits burger, with the classic Southern breakfast dish poured over some biscuits. A small offering of breakfast plates, salads, and small plates complement the biscuit list.
