I've eaten here, off and on, for 15+ years. Tucked in among the craft shops, it's kind of hard to find (it's in the basement!), but that's OK. It just means fewer people waiting in line. And people DO wait in line every lunch because the food is that good. My favorites are the Rueben and the Triple Treat. She... More

They have a great sandwich selection, friendly smiles at the counter, and a "down home' local feel. Great for meetings, or a quick bite on your vacation.

We were looking for something different, other than fast food. We looked up places in Dillsboro from Trip Advisor and saw this place. What a great find! We had egg salad and chicken salad sandwiches that came with pickles and chips. We also had the potato soup. We loved the food and the cozy atmosphere. The service was excellent and... More

Come early as they close after lunch. Good for business lunch. Plenty on the plate. Check to see if they're open ahead of time. Easily overlooked by train passengers.

This is a small deli in town. Very small and quaint. There is actually a Well inside the building, this is an old building and the inside is quaint. Long wooden tables and long wooden seats. Rather dark, BUT the food was excellent deli cuisine. I enjoyed a chicken salad on Pita. They make the chicken salad fresh every day.... More

We asked all of the locals for food choice, this was the collective answer. I wanted to do the BBQ place, but was out voted by the group. The special of the day was a Cuban sandwich, I am not a fan. Beef BBQ won the day! Think small town and you will do fine here.

Excellent ham and Swiss on rye and turkey on wheat for my wife. Nice surroundings and fairly easy to find. Great deli.
