It's all about FRIENDS and FOOD!

On July 22, 2010 at 4:00 pm, a place of legend opened its doors, to the wonderful city of Wilmington. On this day Nelly’s restaurant shared with the world its nostalgia menu. From its handmade 100% Angus burgers, that bring you back to sunny summer BBQs to their Italian beefs that bust with flavor at every bite; Nelly’s will never fail to stratify your taste buds. Daily hand cut fries and lightly battered onion rings make great companions for their specialty Sandwich and wraps. Though our Burgers, Hot dogs and Sandwiches are all amazing, our start player would be our pulled pork. Alone it is a glorious dish, but we have variety of sauces to smoother the pork in.


Not only is our food a culinary adventure, but our eat in area is a work of art that daily changes. Our Walls and ceiling are signed by visitors from around the globe traveling Route 66. Flags hang from Nelly's beams from our visitors’ countries, some as far away as Australia!

Nelly's is a great place to eat, visit, and hang out with the locals.  A real down home feeling in the heart of the county on OLD ROUTE 66!
