The place is easily passed by. It's an old fashioned place that makes you feel like your in a 70s dinner. The guy behind the bat is very nice and personable. The subs are great and reasonable priced. Bring cash no card. No ATM. Get...More

This is a hidden gem of a place for lunch. The owner was friendly and helpful--you can tell he loves what he does. Sandwiches were yummy. The local sitting at the next table even gave my son grief about wearing an Ohio State t-shirt. Great...More

We wanted to go on a picnic at Cades Cove so we stopped here for snadwiches. They were very good as was the potatoe salad and deviled eggs. The best part was getting to talk to the gentleman who waited on us. He was full...More

We were coming to Gatlinburg for years before we finally ventured inside this little gem. A local favorite, I guess they're known for their steamed sub sandwiches but we haven't tried those, opting instead for the chili dogs with slaw which are excellent. They've got...More

The Best Sandwich me and my wife has ever had. 👍 Will go there every chance we get when we visit Gatlinburg. I'm getting hungry just thinking about this place.

We always try to eat where the locals eat. This is the place. It's a one-man operation so don't expect lightning-fast service. He's not slow, he just makes your sandwich to your specifications. If you are not used to home-made potato salad, buy it as...More

You have to try a steamed sub if you are visiting Gatlinburg. The Reuben and Italian subs are my favorites. Watching the owner prepare your sub in this antique machine is an experience you will never forget

We asked the desk clerk at hotel for a good place to eat. They recommended you. The kids loved the hot dogs, while we enjoyed the hot sandwiches. Great local establishment.

One glaring omission so far is hot dogs. Partons Deli makes a great chili dog too. Our favorite sandwich is roast beef on dark bread (think pumpernickel dark) with smoked cheddar cheese, mustard and mayo- steamed and with... More

I am not aware of a menu online. Visiting this very simple, old school deli would give me the impression there isn't one. From the looks of it, this deli probably hasn't changed one bit since he opened it over 40 years ago... More
