Living in Burnsville this is our go to place for lunch. Also now open for evening meals on weekends. Food is excellent at a reasonable price.

The Garden Deli looks small from the outside, but has plenty of seating inside. The pulled pork sandwich and club sandwich were delicious. Service was very good despite the fact that the restaurant was full.

Great food! Service was excellent! The location on the town square allowed out of town visitors to experience the flavor of a North Carolina mountain town.

The restaurant has a beautiful outdoor patio covered in wisteria vines. Nice deli style menu. We liked the grilled reuben. Good choice of craft beers. We took the easy way home on I26. Five hour round trip.

Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.
