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

Ordered the takeout and was remarkably suprised on how good the dish was...Spring Rolls were crisp and not greasy, which is how I like them. Will return here again and eat inside since the food was great. Only gave it 3 stars but it could be a 4 star.
