The food was just average at Prime Thai. It is no longer called Dewey's Thai Cafe. This restaurant would not be number one in any city where I'ved lived but this is Elkin after all. I don't know if I could attribute this to the Duck Pad Thai that I had at Prime Thai but I did have the runs... More

My wife and I have occasion to be in Elkin although we live out of state. My first choice of restaurants as we travel is Thai. I have eaten at many from coast to coast. Last week we ate at Prime Thai, as it is now called, after several other visits there. You don't need big or fancy to have... More

During a camping trip to nearby Stone Mountain State Park, we drove down to the 'city' to explore. After checking Trip Advisor we found Dewey's for lunch. Thai in Elkin, who knew! We noticed several civil servants coming out so we figured it had to be good. Good service and a great lunch menu. Tasty curry and a very good... More

We went here because of the ranking on TripAdvisor. It is a tiny place, almost uncomfortably so, in like an old Dairy Queen. No atmosphere, but the service was above par. Great waiter, accommodating staff. The food was ok. It was good, not bad but nothing to write home about. I had the crispy duck and it was a bit... More

I would recommend eating here. It's nothing fancy but the food is good and very affordable. We had two dinners iced tea and dessert for $30. Staff was friendly and prompt. If I was in the area I would stop here again. The business name changed to Prime Thai.

My husband and I were looking for something different and fresh on a business trip to Elkin and Dewey's did not disappoint! I had the Thai wonton soup to start and my husband had the spring rolls. The flavor development in the broth was amazing and my husband took no time devouring the spring rolls. For our main course I... More

We got in around 9:00 and quickly scanned the internet for food options...what a delight to find a Thai restaurants only 7 miles away. We called to be sure they were still serving....and they told us they were soon closing...but if we did carry out, they would help us out. I got the basil rolls and lemon grass soup...perfect. My...

Recently, we "rediscovered" Deweys. The food is consistently tasty, fresh and a good value. We make it a point to eat here at least once a week and are never disappointed.

This place is located in a small town in rural North Carolina. The outside isn't much to look at (looks like an old Dairy Queen or something like that). And yet ... this is some of the best Thai food I've ever had, and I really like Thai restaurants. What a hidden gem! If you are ever near Elkin, stop... More
