Found this little jewel while we were walking Gatlinburg one evening. They have everything you might need for a trip to the Great Smokey Mountains. The morning we went they packed sandwiches for us and even separated the lettuce and tomatoes in zip lock bags...More

This is a nice place to pick up something quick, like soda or homemade chips or a hot dog. Family oriented place with tons of candy and bottle drinks. A few souvenirs. It's on the edge of town as you arrive from the park.

The staff is very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Asked about doing things in the city and going to Cherokee, NC. Came back for lunch and was excellent. Will be back next year.

It would be hard to write a long review for this place, but suffice it so say that if you walk from the other side of Gatlinburg...this store is a welcome place to find some drinks and snacks to recharge before trekking back across town.

We would have to walk past Dad's every day while walking from our Hotel to all the downtown attractions and shops. We made several stops into Dad's. We needed band-aids, Dad's had em, we needed some milk for our daughter, Dad's had it. My daughter...More
