Nice atmosphere

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... read more

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.

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

I would go back but don't set your expectations too high. Large place just off 4 lane hwy, up on hill. Crowded parking, plenty of seating, full bar with service and plenty of big screen tv's. Good menu with lots of variety. Supposedly has great chicken salad but I thought it was too finely processed, too much pepper and was... More

OK food at good prices with very friendly service. Portions large and quality good but not great. A "good "place for a burger" or something similar.

Jenkins is a locally owned and opperated place, and is very unique to our area. Great place for a flavor of Cleveland, TN. Enjoy. Jeffrey

Best chicken salad EVER! A great atmosphere and one of my family's favorite places to eat. Not a chain, but locally owned since the 1970s.

We lived in Cleveland for years and have enjoyed this local favorite for the whole time! It's not fussy but the wait staff are so friendly and the food is so good! My favorite things are the mushrooms and also the French dip sandwiches! We have moved out of town but go there whenever we go back to visit!

We were with a group of over 20 from out of town that chose Jenkins based on reviews. The reviews were accurate on the food. Everyone enjoyed their food. The Chippy Chicken sandwich was especially good. Our server was one of the worst I have ever encountered. One person in our party asked her what was her favorite item on... More
