After a morning of hiking, Parton's deli was a perfect lunch stop. The place is unassuming, yet cozy and the owner is friendly. Selection of subs is plentiful and the steamer they use for it makes them perfectly cooked, moist and warm. Grab chips off the shelf and cokes out of the fridge while waiting for your sub to cook. Choose your sandwich toppings and enjoy a perfect lunch to go or dine in one of the couple of booths. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly, nothing is overly fancy, just a good sandwich place.

We travel to Gatlinburg often. In our travels we have always driven pass Parton's Deli and never stopped. A local suggested we give it a try. We had sandwiches, potato salad and deviled eggs. We had our order to go. The sandwiches are steamed and served on sub buns. The sandwiches were very good and reasonably priced. The potato salad and deviled eggs were also good. Locating the Deli can be an issue. You need to be watchful or you will miss it. Parking is also an issue. Please aware of where you park if you choose to dine in. I'm glad we tried Parton's Deli and will return.

The owner was very friendly, the sandwiches were good. Don't expect to be in a hurry, but it is worth the wait. Also, sometimes he is not there right at opening time, but will be there in a few minutes. It is better than chain sandwich shops. The man aims to please.

We love Parton's Deli. The owner is so friendly it's like you've known each other all your life. The steamed sandwiches are what sets this place apart from other delis. Not over steamed into a gooey mess but perfectly steamed to be soft and very warm through and through. We love the roast beef on dark bread with smoked cheddar and you can have all the pickles and peppers you want. The chili dogs are also excellent here as is the homemade potato salad, deviled eggs and pound cake. Laid back service where you fetch your own chips and bottled drink then pay when you've finished your meal- cash only though. Prices are reasonable.

This place is AMAZING! Almost everything is homecooked. Great subs! The owners are very nice and old fashioned. This deli has been here since 1974. They are located at light #2 right next to Hillbilly Golf. You must stop here to eat. They close early so make it a lunch stop. Reasonably priced. It doesn't have that tourist trap feel, more of a friendly sandwhich shop with a southern charm. Seriously, eat here at least once.
