Excellent food and good service. Had the Ruben and tomato soup. Soup was excellent and the Ruben was very good. Service was quick and the order was smooth. Cup cakes looked great, just not enough space for one. If you like deli's, this is the place to go. I will go back again soon.

I've eaten here many times while doing work on my 45 foot houseboat on Lake James in Marion NC. The bison chili with sour cream and shredded cheese is out of this world. Their meats are all Boar's Head and top quality. EVERYTHING is made homemade and very fresh. The bakery is the perfect way to accent an incredible meal... More

Four of us had lunch at Holly's during a visit to Marion. Each of us ordered different dishes and shared to "taste". Everything was tasty and fresh. Would have loved to go back for another meal, however we had to return home but we won't forget to visit this nice little Deli on our next trip to Marion,.

We had the hippy chickpeas pita sandwich with fries and the veggie burger with no bun and tomato soup. They were not huge portions which was excellent. All very yummy. Their homade pimento cheese sauce on the veggie burger was outstanding. Then for dessert we had the peanut butter pie on a Oreo crust and it was light and delicious... More

Went for lunch with 2 friends, and was pleasantly surprised! My grilled pimiento cheese was delish! And my friend's Reuben was packed with meat. Fair price, friendly staff, free refills. Would definitely go back!

What a nice surprise to find this place. I had the roast beef and my husband had the chicken wrap; both so tasty. The roll of my sandwich was absolutely delicious (and you know how that can make or break a meal). If you are in this area of NC and wonder whether to stop or pass this little place... More

3 sandwiches takes 20 minutes ? They open the door eight minutes late and then take 20 minutes to make our food no reason to come back

Dang Doug, sorry for the bad experience there pal. We're not perfect for sure but not usually that bad. Seems a little off for us but my apologies none the less. I wish you would've said something when it happened, I would've made good on it. I would say I hate you're not coming back but I don't. More

Holly's Deli is a small town deli in a mall. It has a small eating area. You order at the counter, and it is packed at lunchtime because the food is good! Our small town knows it is a good place to eat lunch. They no longer serve any beer or wine (since it changed owners a few years back)... More

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed it. The reason we stopped selling beer was not because of ownership change but just because it didn't sell. I was having to drink it all to keep it from going bad!! We've have entertained the idea of bringing it back though. More
