We had the curry chicken salad sandwich on rye bread, it was delicious. Also came with broccoli salad and chips. Sat on the outside deck overlooking the stream and watched the Trout swimming. Excellent staff and very friendly. Would definitely go back again!

Food average and service could much friendlier. Best part about it is being able to sit outside along the river. Wish they would not use so much disposable stuff too, real cups, plates and utensils go a long ways towards a nice eating experience.

We have stopped at Kat's Deli for years when we travel on the Cherohala Skyway. It's a small shop but the sandwiches are homemade and delicious. The ladies that run it are super friendly and eager to talk about your travels or answer questions. Homemade deserts can be wrapped and taken with you for a great snack later in the... More

Love stopping by Tellico Kats! Great sandwiches, good desserts. Best seat is outside on the deck that sits out over the Tellico River. Beautiful! Worth a stop if you are traveling the Cherohala Skyway. If the back deck is full, try a picnic table outside beside the river weather permitting.

We planned a day trip over the Cherohala Skyway from NC, and found this lunch spot on Trip Advisor. It's the first stop on the TN side of the mountains, and we were glad we stopped! Delicious sandwiches and salad plates, super friendly service, and a nice side, dog friendly deck, overlooking the river. Picnic tables at the river's edge,... More

Wow. 7 bikers walk in to Kats Deli and walk out full with left overs! The sandwiches are original and creative. Only perfect ingredients used. The breads are so brilliantly matched to the fixings I would hate to question anything they make. Skip that place that fries everything and stop at this diamond. It's small and cozy and well worth...

Small, quaint, excellent food and service, beautiful views that change with the season. Our visiting family and friends love it; even the grandchildren. We visit often when we have guests to eat at Kats and see the Falls. They love it. We go by ourselves about 3-4 times a year. Reminds me of Bavaria part of Germany. Oak Ridge/Kingston

Beautiful scenery - Fantastic food - love The New Yorker and the Southwest paninis. The food is incredibly fresh and the service is excellent. We ate there twice during our 4-day visit to Tellico Plains!

Kays is a good little deli. I wish they had a little bigger menu, but I live near the restaurant and eat their quiet a bit. If you are visiting it's a great place to get a quick bite.
