“Super place for Thai food!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is the best place within a 40 mile radius for Thai food. Food is alway light, fresh, and most importantly GOOD! Prices are reasonable for the quality of food received but they are a little higher than most other Asian restaurants in the area. This is the only Thai restaurant in the immediately area and it is well worth searching it out and enjoying a fine meal. Enjoy!

“Fabulous alternative to fastfood!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We ate here 3 times in a month after 2 trips from FL. to OH. Each meal was memorable.
Family owned and operated. Friendly and helpful staff with menu suggestions. Very reasonable
prices. If you are staying the night off of I-77 and are hungry for Thai Dewey's will not disappoint!

“Yummy thai!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I used to drive to Elkin specifically to eat thai here until they opened another restaurant close to us. We still visit this location whenever we are in Elkin for any other purposes. The lunch menu has lots of really good choices at what I consider to be a good price. You cannot eat at a fast food place and order a combo of any kind, and get out any cheaper! and the food here is soooo good!! We actually went one day and ordered every appetizer on the menu and shared them all. I'm not sure if I am spelling this right, but the mee krob appetizer is one of the best that I have ever had. and it is fun to eat the fillings with the lettuce leaves and notice that several other diners are watching you and wondering what you are eating.

“Nice surprise in Elkin”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Our family of five stopped for the night in Elkin, and we wanted to find a decent restaurant that wasn't fast food. After a quick search on Tripadvisor, we decided on Dewey's, and we were glad we did--we had a fantastic Thai dinner. We were a little wary when we pulled up, as the small restaurant occupies what looks like an old Burger King-type building. But the atmosphere inside was neat and welcoming, with soft guitar renditions of popular songs playing over the speakers. Our daughter enjoyed the steamed dumplings while the rest of us shared the cheese rolls and the spring rolls. Our sons had the pad thai with tofu; I had the duck in red curry (the spicy coconut cream sauce was amazing); and my husband had the larbo (ground chicken in a spicy cilantro sauce over lettuce and cucumbers)--everything was great. The service was attentive and friendly. Next time we're in Elkin, we'll remember this place!

“Authentic Thai Food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Just off of Interstate I-77 in Elkin, NC there is a fabulous Thai restaurant called Dewey's. Strange name for Thai but it is fantastic. The service is spectacular and friendly. come early for lunch 11:30am (especially on Sundays) before the church crowd. Ver reasonably priced under $7 lunch specials with sizable portions. Again, you wouldn't expect this caliber of Thai food or Thai food for that matter in Elkin (lived here for 40 years) but it is a standout. Just don't expect it to look fancy on the outside. It isn't. My whole family eats there on a weekly basis and there has not been a bad meal yet- I think that we have tried everything on the menu. Don't expect wine here though they may have it. Just expect great, fresh Thai with fast service.
