This deli is good but dining area needs a lot of improvement. They have a wide variety of sandwiches. Laid back atmosphere. I think they cater to the College students that come from across the street. Give it a try.

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a Sunday afternoon. My 1st impressions weren't the best from the cooks outside smoking on the patio but we went on in. We ordered a Carolina Cuban and a Hot Italian sandwich. The tables weren't the cleanest but not filthy. Both sandwiches were delicious and served really fast. I'd stop in again if... More

We were in Banner Elk for the Woolly Worm Festival. We went outside festival to eat at a local place. We enjoyed our food a lot. I had grilled pimento cheese on sourdough, my wife had the grilled cheese with bacon, and my daughter had a reuben. Everyone really liked our food. It was a little pricey but acceptable pricing.

In addition to awesome sandwiches on several different in house baked breads, the coleslaw and potato salad are excellent also. Very casual deli in a college community but tasty food and large sandwiches.

Very friendly staff, great food and great atmosphere. It was a little dirty(tables, floors,etc) but it was just after the dinner rush so it didn't bother us!

Ordered to go for a picnic and it was not packed well. Pickles wrapped with the sandwiches and leaky soup, but the food was good. Reuben's, chili and chicken noodle soup were all great tasting.
