More then meets the eye.

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...

Hot sandwiches and tasty chili top the menu. Very good food, but a little slow on service because it was a busy day, but the nice thing was that we were informed that it would take a while before we ordered.

The sandwiches are good, nice portions, Coca-Cola fountain and bottled drinks. The sandwiches come with a side of potato salad or chips. They also offer kids meals that include hot dogs, grilled cheese, and other kid friendly options. The tables weren't recently wiped down, but a few napkins solved that. I would visit again.

Food ok for breakfast, but not very inviting surrounding. Cutting ham and bacon with plastic knives doesn't work real well.

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.
