Flaming Amy's Firing on All Cylinders

During a recent father-and-son weekend road trip to Wilmington, I visited Flaming Amy’s Burrito Barn, an eclectic fast-casual Tex-Mex outpost that’s a favorite with the locals. And for good reason. The bodacious burritos served up here are as tasty as I’ve ever encountered. What’s more, the centrally located salsa bar is more imaginative than anything J.J. Abrams could ever create. 

Among the 17 tempting specialty burritos available, standouts include the Baywatch (grilled tuna, shrimp, blackened tilapia and a jalapeño tartar sauce); the Big Jerk (Jamaican jerk chicken or tofu, rice, beans, cheese, roasted red peppers, sour cream and pineapple jalapeño salad); and the Thai Me Up with grilled “fillin’” like chicken, rice, beans, cheese, roasted red peppers, red onions, carrots and a to-die-for Thai peanut sauce.  

Burritos are bargain-priced at $6.50 and come with tortilla chips on the side. Distinctive bottomless salsa offerings like ginger peach, wasabi avocado and pineapple jalapeño enhance the overall dining experience. 

Be advised: Flaming Amy’s is not for the faint of heart. An irreverent, borderline seedy vibe fills the joint, which claims it has been “employing the freaks of Wilmington since the year 2000.”

Indeed, tattoo-laden staffers exhibit a laid-back collective sensibility that borders on swagger. Walls are festooned with surfboards, rock n’ roll sketches and signs declaring statements like "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy." Nevertheless, the food here is first-rate and service is fast and efficient, so I’ll definitely return again next time I’m in town.
