The place has great food at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly and after you have been there a few times will start to call you by name. It is owned and operated by a father and his two sons. They are good people. I eat there for lunch at least 3 times a week. For the best... More

We eat here at least once a week for lunch. We like that our food is made to order and hot and fresh when we get it. We almost always get the same things, because they are hard to beat! So we definitely recommend the chili dog, the Reuben and the turkey Reuben. The bread for the Reubens is grilled... More

We've been a fan of the Ellijay Deli since they opened in the downtown area. Followed them to their new location now on Craig Street, and eat there fairly often. Our favorite is the Mountaintown sandwich, which just rocks our socks. Service is always friendly, and they're always eager to please.

I had a fantastic Ruben sandwich at Ellijay Deli today. It was perfectly grilled on the outside and totally delicious. I also tried some interesting chips- Rosemary and lemon flavored. Service was quick and friendly. Overall a great lunch!!

Service was ok. A bit under staffed. Not much of a crowd even duringba weekday lunch hour. Food was ok. Fortunately for this restaurant there are no other delis in town.

The Ellijay Deli has been remodeled and is now called the Back Porch Bistro. It is a great place for lunch if you are in the mood for a delicious soup, sandwich, salad type of meal. They also offer "gluten free" meals. My niece treated me to lunch this past weekend and it was $16 for the both of us.... More

Hi Shirley, Just wanted to correct the misunderstanding Ellijay Deli is not the Back Porch Bistro. Ellijay Deli has moved from their original location in Downtown Ellijay. We are now located in East Ellijay on Craig Street. Back Porch Bistro did move into our old location on the square on Ellijay. You are correct their food is delicious and they... More

I am in love with their "east town" sandwich (chicken salad)! Extremely Friendly staff, helpful and great experience every time! They focus on the quality of their service, so although the atmosphere isn't anything "wowing", that wow factor is found in the good food…every time!
