A super little deli in downtown Banner Elk, NC with Boar's Head meat. We had a $1 lite beer (in a can) while waiting for our order and then took our two sandwiches to go. My wife loved the Avalanche sandwich with roast beef, cucumbers, onions, and blue cheese. I had a very good Rueben. Not New York City deli... More

Deli in downtown Banner Elk. Old building that has not had much TLC. You have a pretty nice menu you step up to the counter to order and they call you to come get it when its ready. Good sandwiches but nothing special. Prices are typical for Banner Elk which is to say a tad high for what you get.

In the mood for a sandwich? Dunn's has it, or can make it, or has made it, or came up with it! They are the sandwich pros of the mountains.

Dunn's breakfast and lunch are delicious, I love to go and get their biscuits and gravy and for lunch get a sub to share with my husband. Using boars head meats, the subs/sandwiches are absolutely delicious. It's reasonably priced and the employees friendly. The place isn't as clean as it could be, we don't go to use the bathroom there,... More

Dunn's offers ordinary fare in a low-key atmosphere. The decor is dated and the interior is nothing special. When we were last there, the whole place needed a good and thorough cleaning. The food is generally adequately prepared, but not extraordinary. The folks are friendly and the service is good. It's an okay place for a decent meal.

We stayed at the Perry House, and a breakfast at Dunn's came with the stay. We each had a breakfast burrito, and it was awesome. Eggs, bacon, cheese, peppers and onions. Would stop for that again. Overall, the menu looked very reasonably priced. Good people also own it.

We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. Wished we would have not gone. The place isn't that clean. The bathroom was disgusting. Our sandwiches were okay, not the best like people reviewed on here. My daughter got sick after eating a ham sandwich here. The place is very old and not in the best shape.

Loved this place, so friendly, food was terrific. They have a big menu for a small sandwich joint... I had the cheeseburger sliders with the homemade coleslaw, all were superb. Companion had the chicken gyro special with homemade potato salad and pronounced it excellent. Third companion had homemade egg salad and ate it all. I must wax ecstatic for a... More

I LOVE Dunn's Deli. They are my top pick in the area for a sandwich. I know my food is prepared when I order it and it's always amazing. They always have some fun and unique burger or sandwich on special - go for it! They also serve a great breakfast. I love to pick up a country ham biscuit... More

We stopped in based on reviews in the area and the sandwiches were excellent. Liked the atmosphere... great place to pick up some brochures about the area and make plans for your day trips around the area. Self Service and great food for a quick lunch!
