Jenkins is THE place to visit in Cleveland. The new location is charming - fresh and new while keeping the old feel of Jenkins Deli.

Went there on Valentines Day and had a wonderful meal. Jalapeño bottle caps as an appetizer was really good. I had the Deli burger & onion rings and my wife had the buffalo hamburger steak with fries. Nice new larger building in the Spring Creek development.

Jenkins is a locally owned restaurant. They are famous for their chicken salad, which you can get on Texas toast as a sandwich or as part of a salad plate. Their new location is well decorated and features murals depicting local and area events. They have an outdoor dining area that will be nice on warm days. The new location... More

Visited the old location twice and had great food and great service both times. Will definitely return again!! My only negative comment would be change the bread on the French dip it gets a weird spongy texture when dipped...

We reserved the party room for a gathering of old high school buddies. The new location is definitely larger than the old. They added a salad bar, but that was not why we came. I remembered the delicious sandwiches from the old location. Apparently they did not make it to the new location. The menu was definitely expanded. I ordered... More

The old Jenkins' location on Mouse Creek Rd. is now history. This brand new restaurant was opened in November and is somewhat larger than the old place and makes it easier to get a table during busy service times. We made our first visit just a couple of days ago and, overall, enjoyed the experience. Obviously, the new place is... More

We were in town for an Antique car show and a friend of ours, who grew up in Cleveland told us we had to eat at Jenkins. Glad we stopped here. We arrived about 11:30 for lunch. Everyone needs to try the chicken and rice soup. It was the best I have ever had. The French dip is excellent and... More

We were impressed with the food, service and the atmosphere was unique and enjoyable. The only disappointment I have is I was told they had a large full service bar. Small not full service but that will not keep me from going back.

While attending a antique car show in Cleveland, our first time in this town, our friends had eaten earlier this day here for lunch. We decided to go grab a late lunch also, arriving about 1:30 pm. The restaurant was still busy but we were seated immediately. My wife and I had their signature chicken and rice soup and it... More
