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.

I love love love this place. When I want a great hot dog or a great sandwich I always go to Parton's Deli. I have been frequenting this place for many years and they never fail to delight me with their food. There is nothing and I mean nothing like having a hot dog or a rueben from here. My... More

We stopped in for a quick bite. I got the Italian on white and my husband got the pastrami on pumpernickel. We also got potato salad and coleslaw. It was fabulous. We will be back again next time we are in town. The owner is a wonderful man.

Probably an older establishment in the area, so don't judge this book by the cover. The sandwich was piled high with everything I like, and everyone else loved their choice. Don't miss!

Service was excellent! There were three people who finished their lunch while he was preparing our to go order and each one personally thanked him before leaving. Great place. Yummy food. We will make sure to stop here every time we visit Gatlinburg.

Great local deli and a great throw back. The Owner is really a stand out guy and just remember to bring cash. 2 people can get a sandwich, chips and drinks for around 18 bucks.

Carl Parton is one of the many relatives of Dolly Parton, who live in the area. The deli was like something from the 1950s, and made me feel warm and cozy. The food was great and cola in bottles, as it should be.
