The sandwiches here are fantastic. Service is great, very friendly. They have a deck right over the river with a beautiful view. If you have any left over crust etc. you can feed the fish down below. You can tell the fish are used to being fed. Wish they were open in the evenings also. It is a popular stop... More

This is the type of place you hope to stumble upon while driving around the mountains. We all had Paninis and sat on their back patio and admired the river flowing past. It was a nice scenic stop for lunch that everyone should try out.

Nice little deli at the Western end of the Skyway. My friends and I stop for a bite very time we ride the Skyway! Great sandwich selection, really nice people and a deck that overhangs the river. End to a wonderful ride.

Great view of the river on a wood deck outside. Very good service and lunch. Easy to miss, so drive slow! There is parking across the street on the right.

What a fantastic place. Fabulous view of the river, excellent food, and best of all, very personable service. Had a turkey sandwich with a cranberry sauce on it that was out of this world. This will be one of our regular stops when we're riding.

Ask for a Cuban! It's not on the menu; but, they'll make you one. Best Cuban outside of Miami! Watch the trout in the river while you wait for your lunch.

What a refreshing stop after a kind hot day of riding. The food was delicious. The ladies were delightful. Home brewed tea is refreshing while sitting above a stream watching nature!! We will be back for sure!!

I had the same thing and couldn't finish it. My wife had a tuna something ? Sandwich and also couldn't finish it. I... More

Katz has the best soup and sandwiches. I love their chicken salad, best I ever had. Their soups are so yummy, and we love their side salads. Well worth the money. Best food in Tellico Plains. Ron and Deborah Singer

This is my second trip to Tellico Kat's on the Cherohala Skyway, and I have to say they still put out one of the best sandwiches money can buy. This time I had the italian sub, it was piled high with cappocola ham and provolone cheese - after eating it for such, I was still full at dinnertime.
