Dunn's Deli is easy to spot, being on Main Street next to the Chamber of Commerce. It has a convenient parking area designated for customers only. The place was constantly busy throughout our lunchtime visit. Because each sandwich is prepared to order, it can take...More

I had a St. Patrick sandwich. The portion was large and the sandwich was great. I had potato salad as a side, it was ok. I will go back.

I just dropped in to get a sandwich to split so I could make it to an evening engagement. The proprietor was helpful, the sandwich was tasty and all went well.

A great spot for lunch after a few hours at the slopes. We enjoyed the egg salad, philly steak, and several build-your-own sandwiches that were so good. They have a variety of breads, cheeses, meats, and offer Gluten Free bread for only $0.45. Enjoy!

All the sandwiches our group had were yummmy, especially the gluten free BLT. The inside is nothing fancy, but for lunch is was fine.

This place makes the most amazing food! Have not found anything on the menu I don't love. The BD breakfast burrito, the Avalanche, The Bobcat Burger and the Ruben are my faves

Nothing fancy but prepared to order burgers and sandwiches. And good assortment of beers. Across the street from small college. Food is good, and priced okay.

We have been to Dunn's Deli a few times now. This is a perfect place to run in and grab a sandwich, grab a takeout order and head out for an adventure, or hang out and watch the "action" in Banner Elk. It is a...More

I'm in there several times a week and I asked the owner about the online menu. They are in the process of updating it, so look for it soon. As to #7, it is made with Sausalito turkey, American cheese, grilled sourdough... More

Their parking spaces run along the street. The spaces are straight in and out - not diagonal nor parallel. Plenty of parking.
