Local favorite!

They have the best salad bar in town. They are also famous for their chicken salad and chicken and rice soup.

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

My friends and I visited Ocoee, TN for whitewater rafting this past weekend. While en route back our hotel in Cleveland we passed this quaint deli, Jenkins. And oh boy, I'm so glad we stopped to grab a bite to eat. I ordered the classic chicken salad (I see why now), today's soup which was Baked Potato, sampler with cheesesticks,... More

A favorite for easy dining. They are known for their chicken salad and they have good old fashioned hamburgers. A fresh salad bar and the chicken and rice soup is not to be missed.

I have 2 children that live in Cleveland and Jenkins is always a treat. We all love their chicken salad sandwich, the chicken wrap, and all of their burgers. The potato skins are just right as an appetizer and the sweet tea is southern sweet- meaning very! The wait staff is always super nice and the food comes out in... More

Gotta be the "Best" fish sandwich in 500 miles. A foot long filet hanging off the steamed roll with Romaine lettuce, tomato and mayo. Salt it lightly and hold on. You can't think yummy loud enough... Loads of fries, big fries and a pickle wedge..... Go for the un-sweet tea too. What a meal..... Love the friendly atmosphere..

Atmosphere and decor were nice. Food was average, I had the buffalo chopped steak and it was overcooked which made it dry. Wait staff could be better.

I love Jenkins burgers! I have had a few subpar servers but they normally don't last since they make there money on tips and tips don't exactly flow on when you give bad service. I like the new location. I visit on a regular basis. My only suggestion would be to add a little more fresh fruit to the salad... More
