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

Dunn's has the best burgers and sandwiches around and their breakfast biscuits are among the best I've had anywhere (and I've had a lot).

Don't ask for a side of French fries because this is the response you will get. Dunn's Deli definitely looks like an establishment that would serve fried anything. Meaning - it is rather old in appearance and not in a retro sort of way. Also, do not sleep in late on the weekends because they stop serving breakfast at 11:00... More

Another meal in Banner Elk in a restaurant that needs a major renovation. But the decor, again, doesn't effect the quality of the food. The chicken salad sandwich I had for lunch was homemade and delicious!!!! I will definitely go back again and look forward to trying out the breakfast fare.

Can't say the ambiance is great (needs some refreshing) and service was a little slow but simple breakfast sandwich was awesome and so inexpensive! Would try it again for lunch and would definitely visit again for breakfast! Worth a visit for sure!

Across from the Lees-McCrae College campus in downtown Banner Elk. Come hungry. A little funky, listen for your name to be called when your order is ready, pour your own beverage, grab a seat, and enjoy.

This is a good place for a sandwich and a beer. Sandwiches are shareable size. Quality is good especially because they serve Boar's Head meats. Soups are good too. PBR and Miller bottles for $1. I've never eaten breakfast here although I heard it was good. Atmosphere is pretty crappy: plastic chairs and tables, one TV is tiny another you... More

Dunn's is a wonderful little local stop right in downtown Banner Elk. Nothing touristy about this place, as it caters to locals and the nearby Lees-McRae College crowd, but that just adds to its charm. As soon as you walk in the door, you receive a friendly greeting from the staff and made to feel right at home! While their... More
