We came to Banner Elk to escape the heat in Knoxville. We stopped at Dunns because my husband was craving a BLT. It hit the spot service was friendly and fast. We took our lunch to nearby mill pond for a picnic. It was great good! Thank you for excellent service!!

Don't plan to eat the food at the ski lodge. It's bad and expensive and the whole place is filthy. instead ! Stop at dunns deli the night before and get a nice fresh sand which. Perfect fuel for a day of skiing or hiking.

Great food, friendly staff, & close to the LMC campus. They also give student discounts so that is a huge PLUS! I eat at Dunn's pretty regularly and have always had an excellent experience. They also have the BEST sweet tea!

We tried this for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. The grilled sandwiches that we had were piled with plenty of meat and fresh ingredients. They also have a good selection of cheap bottled beer and some local stuff on draught. I highly recommend Dunn's Deli.

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
