There is public parking around hillbilly golf. It has a red P sign so you'll know. This is a good find. Don't expect an extravagant menu. I had an Italian on pumpernickel with provolone cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, yellow peppers, Italian dressing, and oregano. Then the sandwiches are... read more

So good and simple. I... More

We had always passed by this place meaning to stop. This trip we finished playing Hillbilly Golf around lunch time and decided to give it a try. We both got chili cheese dogs, chips and drinks at a reasonable price. We enjoyed our lunch by the window watching the traffic go by. The owner is friendly and helpful. The place... More

My boyfriend has been eating here for years while on vacation with his family. We were staying in Pigeon Forge and drove over for lunch. We got the Reuben with coleslaw instead of sauerkraut. And it was very good! Family owned place, same gentleman making sandwiches for all these years.

We found this place by accident! And have returned many, many times! This is a place the "locals" frequent. Steamed buns for the subs, amazing potato salad! Must be patient as it's a one man operation but soooo worth the wait!

Ditto many of the other positive reviews. The owner was very friendly and the food was good, much better than going the fast food route. The owner did tell me his 84 year old mother gets up to make the deviled eggs, potato salad, etc., at 5:00 a.m. each day. Wow! Just the kind of people I like to support!... More

This place is nothing fancy, but it was a good stop for a simple lunch for a family. My kids enjoyed their deli sandwiches, which were prepared in a steamer. We also tried chili dogs - they were tasty and messy, just like a chili dog should be. Service was very friendly. Sandwiches are made to order, so it's not... More

My wife and I decided to try Parton's Deli after several years of visiting the Gatlinburg area. All I can say is...What took us so long? The owner was so friendly and talked to us as if we were lifelong friends. I ordered two chili dogs and my wife ordered a reuben. Both orders were steamed and the only word... More

We read the reviews and went for lunch. The food was only just ok. We sat and ate in a booth, the place was dirty. The owner was friendly.

Don't let it the outside fool you. This place has great food. I had the ruben and my wife had the Italian sub. Great food great price. Just make sure you have cash. Owner is really nice too.
