Walt's Flavor Crisp Chicken Express

Walt’s is one of the rare fried chicken spots where the juicy meat is the highlight and not the crispy breading—although the exterior is plenty crackly. Get a two-piece dark meat meal with tangy-tender collards, red beans and rice, and a sweet potato pie that will make you wish it were Thanksgiving. This is an essential stop for an excellent casual meal, whether you’re road-tripping or spending the weekend in town. They’ve been open since 2002 and now have two locations, one on Lincoln Street, and another just off 95 near the Pennsylvania border.

Bardea Food & Drink in Downtown Wilmington is as perfect for date night as it is for an order of wings at the bar.
