Not bad, but don't order the chicken salad.

I was told that chick salad was "famous" I the area. It was the blandest thing I've ever tasted. Of course it's the best if no other establishment makes it. However, the blacked fish sandwich made up for that. It was excellent. The decor is very interesting, they have all types of cool things... read more

We took our family today to Jenkins and when I called ahead was told 10 to 15 min. Apone arrive noticed the place was totally packed. After waiting 30+ minutes was seated and placed a quick order for myself since I was on my lunch break from work. We waited and waited. Finally said I needed it to go. My... More

Great food. The first evening we went was busy and dinner took a little while, but it was great food. We've been there 2 other times since and had a great timely service. I would recommed highly.

No matter how many times I try to give Jenkin's a chance, it is incomprehensible to me what the attraction is. Since a group was ordering, I tried again. My order was not good. It was flavorless. I ordered the buffalo burger, wrapped in lettuce, and added a side of avocado. When it arrived, it had no condiments. The avocado... More

Service was great, hamburgers for others in party was good. Reuben had onions and pickles with very little sauerkraut, cheese or dressing.

Jenkins has been a Cleveland establishment for many years and just within the past 2 years or so, they opened up a new place that exceeds all expectations based on their previous location in terms of atmosphere. The food has always been good, but now they have been able to combine both to give patrons an excellent dining experience.

Food is tasty. Good atmosphere. Kids love watching the train go around. Prices are a bit high for a deli. Our family of four paid $40 for our meal and we didn't do dessert and 2 of us had a bev other than water.

Friendly atmosphere and the best chicken salad within a 400 mile radius. Jenkins was here 35 years ago when I passed through and it has only gotten better.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. It was a bit crowded. But, we were seated quickly. We really enjoyed the salad bar. It's not your average salad buffet! The macaroni salad and the potato salad are so very delicious. Everything was fresh and the bar and table were clean. The chicken salad is good as well. Their new... More

We decided to stop here on our way back to Knoxville from zipping lining. Glad we did. The owner's daughter visited our table and gave us a little history lesson about the place. Cute and cozy place. The decor, are items that has been donated from the locals. My favorite menu item was the bison burger! Our server was nice.... More
