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.

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

We discovered this place a few months ago although we have lived here for 10 years (why we missed it? I don't know :) The food is good and homecooked. We eat here on Sundays often after church and have not been disappointed. Bought our Thanksgiving pies here too! A good downhome place to eat in Porterville, of which there... More

The original Jenny Lynn's was owned by a husband/wife team, and named after their daughter. After the wife passed away, the place was sold, but retained the name. The food is just so so, now...not like it used to be when "the mrs" was there and had her hand in making everything. I haven't gone back to try their dinner... More
