This would be a good place to do take out because the food we had was good but the setting was pretty hole in the wall! My husband had the pimento cheese sandwich with jalapeno, tomatoes and onions. I thought it would be gross but it was really good. I had the chicken salad which was average to good.

This place optimizes the word foul. You walk in and the cleanliness is clearly an issue, but I was starving so I figured I would just give it a shot. I looked around for the menu and the counter girl looked like a petrified Harry Potter character, staring off in a vegetative state. Which, was still manageable for me. After... More

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.
