We are here once or twice a week when we are here. We always bring our friends. Great over stuffed sandwiches with a huge variety. Friendly people great food. Casual college/mountain atmosphere

We had breakfast. Wrap was very good as was the croissant. Friendly place. Order at the counter and pickup at the counter sticky salt and pepper shakers an other people's trash in the table setting containing the keys up packets. Prices are very fair but atmosphere needs work.

We've been coming here for years and it is still the best place for a sandwich or salad. No skimping and reasonably priced. But the best part is - every bite is delicious. There were 7 of us in our family but service was quick and we enjoyed the picnic tables outside. Can't wait for the next visit.

As a new local, I've found that Dunn's is the best place for lunch! Well worth the visit, you can't possibly leave without a full happy belly! And they have the best sweet tea in town!

Great sandwiches! This is a great girlie! We here at a local's recommendation. They have just about every kind of sandwich on the menu with a wide variety of different kinds of breads. Our sandwiches were fabulous! However; I thought they were a little pricey.

I ate the Italian Sub. It was extremely delicious. The potato salad was equally as delicious. My husband loved his meal as well. This is not a fancy place, but the food is excellent. The environment is pub style. We ate here for lunch and at this time of day it would be suitable for families. I don't know what... More

Dunn's has the best burgers and sandwiches around and their breakfast biscuits are among the best I've had anywhere (and I've had a lot).

Don't ask for a side of French fries because this is the response you will get. Dunn's Deli definitely looks like an establishment that would serve fried anything. Meaning - it is rather old in appearance and not in a retro sort of way. Also, do not sleep in late on the weekends because they stop serving breakfast at 11:00... More

Another meal in Banner Elk in a restaurant that needs a major renovation. But the decor, again, doesn't effect the quality of the food. The chicken salad sandwich I had for lunch was homemade and delicious!!!! I will definitely go back again and look forward to trying out the breakfast fare.

Can't say the ambiance is great (needs some refreshing) and service was a little slow but simple breakfast sandwich was awesome and so inexpensive! Would try it again for lunch and would definitely visit again for breakfast! Worth a visit for sure!
