Hubby and I went to Jantz for lunch again today. We went in thinking it was past 'rush hour'. No.. But all was good. We were seated quickly, but had to wait a few minutes for service. No problem. We were greeted with the sweetest face and the biggest apology ever for our 'long' wait. Even though they are extremely... More

To start off with I liked the fact it's small. You don't feel crowed, but you do feel cozy. If you go for lunch, be sure and get there before 12. Otherwise your waiting in line. I usually order a half sandwich with soup. It's just enough to smooth a savage soul. I've tried some of the pies but haven't... More

The Merced restaurant scene is dominated by fast food & chains but this place is special. On a recent visit we ate breakfast twice, lunch once, and took home a pie. We kept going back because everything was good and the staff was so friendly. My first order was for a standard breakfast of fried eggs, ham, & potatoes. Not... More

Amazing deli and bakery! The sandwiches, soups, and salads are wonderful. The bread and pies are made from scratch. Who would've known Merced?

I like Jantz for the small, family atmosphere. You can't beat their food whether it is breakfast or lunch (or dinner) ( The one in Atwater is open for dinner.)

Came here for lunch on a Saturday (they are closed on Sundays) and really enjoyed their tri-tip sandwich and side salad. I also orded a slice of their berry pie -- delicious. Great small restaurant with friendly service.

Been to the Merced location three times for lunch. Tables and chairs are small and crammed together. Noisy and loud. Service not so good-they need to smile with heart more. Pricey for what you get-not impressed at all although for me the location is good. Baked good taste no better no worse than Raleys but cost quite a bit more.... More

Local favorite and sister store from the one in Atwater, CA 20 min away. Homemade baked goodies and B/Lunch fare. Casseroles, bread etc to take home too. Only complaint are the rather small table and chairs in this store

This was my first time here as I live in Oklahoma but my Aunt suggested it so I met her there. We opted for a seat out on the patio. Had the BLT and potato salad. My sandwich was great, the potato salad I couldn't get enough of and if it wouldnt look so ridiculous I would have licked the... More

I've eaten here on a couple occasions. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. Portion sizes are huge but lack flavor. I order a breakfast burrito and it was filled with mostly unseasoned potatoes. The lunches are a little better if you can stand the lines and the noise.
