Small sandwich/deli shop with limited seating of 4 booths and a large round table for about 6. Owner was working alone so took a little longer but worth the wait. We both had a turkey sub with the works and the sub bread and turkey...More

Interesting sub roll selection, pumpernickel. Chili dog average. Willing to make it your way. Personal service key. A little different from a chain deli.

Unassuming little place is correct but so good! Best Reuben ever and the chili dog were also great. The service and friendliness....just awesome! Highly recommend for lunch or a picnic to go.

Partons is an unassuming little deli in Gatlinburg with great sandwiches and friendly service. My daughters and I had lunch there, I had the Reuben which was very good. Potato salad was good too. Bring cash as no credit cards are accepted.

Excellent prices, food, hospitality and atmosphere. Owner was super nice and has been there for 44 years. We will return. Everything was superb. Excellent value for money

You can't get more of a real deal than Parton's Deli. If you're looking for a renovated, updated 'nostalgic' version of what was in Gatlinburg nearly 50 years ago--this isn't it. This is 8very much* what Gatlinburg was 50ish years ago. If dust or cobwebs...More

Tasty sammiches, good sides, homemade tater salad. Nothing fancy, this place is plain and simple (dated, even), with a down-home touch, not the norm for such a tourist town. It is on Parkway, a very busy street and it lacks parking. Also, no credit cards...More

Sandwiches were so delicious! Love the bread and warm meat and cheese. So glad we had lunch there - everyone enjoyed it.

Our family is on vacation here in Tennessee and just finished golf at Hillbilly Golf (also great). Walked over to Patton’s and had an AMAZING sub with potato salad on the side. A true hole-in-the-wall that is worth stopping at. We will be back!

One glaring omission so far is hot dogs. Partons Deli makes a great chili dog too. Our favorite sandwich is roast beef on dark bread (think pumpernickel dark) with smoked cheddar cheese, mustard and mayo- steamed and with... More

I saw a website, but when I went there, I was warned not to continue. It said you could view the menu, but I did not take the chance of getting a virus.
