Beers for a $1 a glass, Boars Head meats in all the sandwiches, delicious soups, creative and interesting daily specials for sandwich selections, what’s not to like? The place looks like your typical college “go to” sandwich shop. The college is across the street. It’s...More

Stopped in here for a quick lunch as it was recommended to us when we were renting our ski equipment. It was quick, cozy, and absolutely delicious!

Most of the crowd here were obviously locals. Hey they know a good place in their own neighborhood. Sandwiches are amply filled and reasonable priced. Nothing fancy here but good food.

My wife & I grabbed lunch at Dunn's while in Banner Elk for a weekend. An old streetfront building with a shabby yellow & green interior (colors of the nearby junior college) and old ceiling fans wobbling overhead. Order at the counter, grab a table...More
