This restaurant is like a home town Panera. The bread bowl potato soup is great! The atmosphere is really friendly and relaxes. If you are coming to the area this is a great lunch spot.

The menu doesn't have a great variety. The sandwich I had was made with stale bread and dry meat. The condiments that came with the sandwich were sparse to nonexistent. Service was so so.

Stopped in here for lunch the other day. Had not been there in a long time. I like the sandwiches that they make but I wish they had more choices. Really love the barbecue sandwich they call "Ain't She Sweet". Yum.

Gaunce's is a short distance off I-64.Head south on the by-pass through the first stop light and it is maybe a quarter of a mile on the right beside Big Boy and much better! First stop I had chicken and dumpling soup with a corn muffin and fresh fruit. The fresh fruit had to go with me since the soup... More

Usually very good little sandwich shop and you can take out and buy their specialties in bulk. Good desserts. But make sure someone experienced makes your milkshakes. Might as well have ordered chocolate milk. I think they forgot the ice cream. They did give me a refund.

I have eaten lunch at Gaunce's Deli and Cafe several times. Lately, I seem to gravitate toward the soup and sandwich combo. I particularly like their chicken and dumpling soup and their "Inside Out Hot Brown." A Hot Brown is a Kentucky specialty open-faced sandwich but this one is a regular sandwich with the same contents. Gaunce's Inside Out Hot... More

On the way from Kentucky back to North Carolina and stopped for a quick bite. I had the club sandwich and a side of macaroni salad. Items are sold separately. Both were good. Perhaps in Winchester, KY Gaunces is more than just good (meant seriously not snarkily). If I lived in the area I would probably eat here alot, and... More

You walk in, look over the billboard menu, order at the cash register, get your own drink at the fountain then pick a table. Your number will be called then you walk up to the counter to pick up your food. I've had most of the sub sandwiches and they are very tasty, though a little on the small side.... More
