We stopped in to get sandwiches here on our way to Clingman's Dome just as we always do when we take a day trip into the mountains. As usual the sandwiches were great - fresh and tasty. This is one of the gems of Gatlinburg.

Best little sub shop around! Owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We went twice while in town and miss the place now back home. Will go again a few times when back in town.

This was the best deli I have been to. Very rustic but the food is amazing. Not a huge selection, but what they have is enough. Fresh steamed buns and the deviled eggs were additive!

Quaint little sub shop right by the hotel we stayed at! The gentleman was nice and friendly and had great sandwiches. It's cash only so don't bring cards!

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
