This general store and deli is a great stop to get sandwiches, drinks, chips, and supplies before heading into the GSMNP for a picnic or hike. Conveniently located near the Park's Gatlinburg entrance and directly across the street from Park Grill and NOC outdoor sporting goods center. Warm and friendly service, great sandwiches, we'll be back!

Its a small general store with a grill. The grill has breakfast items & typical grill items- hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches. I had a double bacon cheeseburger w/ tots, kids had pb&j's w/ fries. Everyone enjoyed their food. Everything was good but nothing to rave about like some reviews I've read. Maybe others havent had this kind of food much..???... More

This store has a lot of everything. It was fun to look at candy that I enjoyed as a child (50 years ago) It also has a small area to enjoy food that the prepare there.

Beer, ice, a deli sandwich counter and grill. This is THE place to go for your picnic lunch before heading to the park. Nice store with sundries, coolers, fishing, camping and hiking gear. Nice folks working here and pleasant environment.

Deli opens at 7am and closes at 5pm. Sandwiches made to order and lunches to go. I wish the deli was open later in the evening.

We always get breakfast and lunch here. Very good convenience food and excellent prices. We stay at days Inn or quality Inn because it's walking distance.

Been wanting to stop and see this place. It was really cool. The bacon they were cooking smelled so good. They have a lot of variety and alot of old time candy and sodas. Parking is right there and free also. Stop in if you get the chance.

I've been visiting this store 25 year's before it became Dad's. l was sad to see the old parkway market close but I love Dad's so much more! Every corner has something different. It's a got to go to place whenever I'm in The Burg...... Go see for yourself!
