Good place, nothing special. It's quick, inexpensive sandwiches, friendly staff. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

We stopped here on a whim and it turned out well. The sandwiches were creative and quite large. You bussed your own food when they called that it was ready. A good experience

We stopped into Dunn's Deli spontaneously for lunch today and I'm so glad we did. I dined in with my mother and my son. We all had different sandwiches, which were great. The Perry Housemelt is very creative and tastey with roast beef, pastrami, and cheese. The hot ham and swiss was fabulous too. The sandwiches are all served with... More

Stopped in for a burger and soda. Nothing memorable about the burger, but we'd go back again and give it another try.

Location has been there a while so we decided to give it a try. We called ahead for the soups of the day and were pleased to hear they had chicken and French onion. We ordered both soups with a turkey sandwich and a chicken fajita salad with 2 hot teas with lemon. Well, the soups were inedible - the... More

Normally, when my husband and I go out of town I aim to eat "like a local". I like to find the hidden gems and this place here is gold! You walk in and there's not much around to be impressed by (not first date material) but the prices are more than fair for the amount our food you get... More

We stopped here to grab a quick sandwich and left completely full. Sandwiches were much bigger than I had expected and well worth the price. There were bottles of beer for only $2 at the time and we took advantage of that as well. If we are ever in the area again, we will be stopping back by Dunn's Deli.

Dunn's Deli is run by the folks that own the Perry House. Mike the proprietor is pretty skilled in the kitchen. While it may not look like much at first glance, order any breakfast or a Perry House Melt and you won't be sorry. Honestly some of the best food we had up in the region.

We stopped by Dunns for lunch, and were not disappointed at all. The food was great, fresh, top quality meats, cheeses, and breads. The music playing was old school rock and roll, and the drinks were cold. There was only one guy on, and while he probably needed another person there to help him wipe tables, we didn't mind a...
