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

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

Don't plan to eat the food at the ski lodge. It's bad and expensive and the whole place is filthy. instead ! Stop at dunns deli the night before and get a nice fresh sand which. Perfect fuel for a day of skiing or hiking.
