First off, the food is still wonderful. The cleanliness is NOT. The bathroom looked it was from Section 8 housing. The rest of the restaurant wasn't much better this time around. There were dirty floormats piled up at the counter, which you had to step over when you paid. There were deliveries piled up there too. Finally, the carpet didn't... More

The experience will definitely be made by the sandwich that you order. We had the Not so Basic BLT (which wasn't that exciting) and the Cavalier which was EXCEPTIONAL. The homemade Jumbo croissant is out of this world. So soft and tender it almost melts in your mouth. If I had it to do over, I would order everything on... More

If I could give three and a half stars, I probably would. I've been to Dunn's several times, and never been unhappy with my order. They've got a decent beer selection too. You can pretty much ask them to do anything and they'll do it well an quickly.

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.
