Yes, I yearn for the great old fashioned steamed deli sandwich that evokes memories of my youth and Parton's Deli delivers. However, I do believe the Deli has improved the interior of this small shop with upgraded floors and less clutter, while the same owner is there to create your sandwich and serve with a smile. And yes, you do... More

We stayed at a hotel close to this deli. It was a crazy rainy day so we choose to grab something close we could bring back and eat. We were very happy with our choice and the owner was so friendly! I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a great sandwich for a picnic or just a quick meal.

We chose to have lunch here based on tripadvisor reviews. Amazing. The guy taking orders, making sandwiches, and also accepting payment was very pleasant. We ordered some of the most popular sandwiches, the Reuben and Italian. My boyfriend also sampled a slaw dog. We also tried sides of potato salad and deviled eggs. It's a good sign when the locals...

We have passed by Parton's for years but for one reason or the other, we never gave it a try. Finally ate lunch during our last vacation. Great steamed sandwiches. The owner was also very hospitable. We look forward to our next visit, the LORD willing.

I think this restaurant is excellent. It has Deli Style steamed sandwiches with homemade sides and chips. Food is great, but kind of expensive. Worth it though.

I felt like I was part of the family while in there. You sit around the table and chat with Dennis who's family owns the deli. Can't beat the feel of sitting at grandma's table in the kitchen. So many chains around, nice to hop in out of the bustle of traffic to a family owned place since 1974. The... More

For those of you not familiar with steamed sandwiches you have been missing something great. Steamed sandwiches are not common and we were glad to find Parton's Deli served them. The 3 of us all love the roast beef sandwich with either smoked cheddar or Swiss cheese prepped either plain or with a combination of spicy mustard and/or mayonnaise. My... More
