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

Great locals spot. Stopped here for the first time on our way out of town, and we're only sorry we didn't find it earlier. Great reuben and the chicken walnut salad is GF. Have some patience since they make everything fresh with only two ppl behind the counter. Worth it. We'll be back on our next trip.

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 great option if you are not looking for a long drawn out meal. I highly... More

With Boar's Head meats, and a grille for burgers, Dunn's is a quick and easy spot for lunch in Banner Elk. Located in the center of town, with somewhat limited parking, there are also daily sandwich and burger specials made to order. A selection of Cold beers is also available. Order at register, and enjoy your lunch at Dunn's, or... More

Great deli, large selection of items to choose from. If you don't see anything that trips your trigger they have a build your own where they will build a sandwich that suits you. Prices are very reasonable, staff is super friendly.

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
