Pleasant experience

I needed a quick lunch with friends. We were there right at noon. Everyone liked what they had. The food was not, salad cold. I had the BLT. One of the best I've had in a while. Lots to choose from. Nice meal.

It's an out-of-the-way, homey place in the middle of the California Central Valley (i.e., the middle of nowhere). We would not have eaten there but it was recommended by a relative who lives in nearby Springville. Glad we did. Food is surprisingly good and a great price. Traditional american and cal-mex menu. My wife loves their BLT except they season... More

I like to have lunch here because they have an excellent Chunky Chicken Salad, made with green leaf lettuce, red cabbage, artichokes, olives, mozzarella cheese and topped with chopped chicken and served with fresh bread. Consistency, friendly employees, great service, clean and pleasant dining atmosphere and good prices make this a place to keep coming back to.

They also have a crispy chicken salad that is not on the menu but they will make it for ya if you order it. fresh baked bread is also available for dinner entrees, or as a... More

this is a small restaurant with with some patio seating when it's not 110 degrees outside. View from the patio is a busy street, not very scenic. Great selection for breakfast and lunch, I've not eaten there at dinner. Food is fresh and prepared well, service is quick and cheerful, They have a nice selection of baked goods and desert... More

Jenny Lynn's is a nice place to meet friends for lunch. Expect to arrive early to have a better chance of getting a table. Food consist of really interesting and delicious sandwich selections and great salads. It stands out from the normal chain operation, by their menu, which is limited to sandwiches, soups and salads. But, that said, the variety... More

The lunches here are very good, great salads and sandwiches. There are several different salad offerings which also come with your choice of bread. On my last visit, the staff was very friendly and attentive. The prices are also very reasonable. I haven't tried their dinner entrees yet, but plan on doing this soon.

Stopped here after working on a wildland fire for more than a week and had a great meal. The selection was great, the quality of food great, and the staff friendly. The prices were not too bad too!

I have a small capacity stomach, and asked if I could order the child's hamburger, and was told no. I asked to speak to the manager, and explained to him that most places make allowances for me. He responded in a very brisque manner and with a florid face, "no we don't do that, so you'll have to leave". This... More
