“What å rip off”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

We Were on a company trip from norway some time ago. We were about 20 people. The food took an hour before it came to our table, every order was wrong, none of us got what we ordered. And those who wanted å well done steak got it blood red, and those who wanted them rare got the steak cooked the hell out of it. It ended up with we just took what they came with, because we were starving. Young waiters with no experience at all....

“Adult McDonalds”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

In all of my adult life, i can never recall having to be subjected to THE most disgusting, amateur, lackluster service and food that is on offer at Jensens in Randers.
Waiting staff - far too young, no experience and totally thick in my opinion.
Waited 48 minutes for our starter to arrive, and had 2 impatient and very hungry children. No consideration for them at all, and no understanding of children+hunger = problems.
The "restaurant" was cordoned off into 2 sections, and when we walked in, the 1st section was totally full apart from one table, which we were TOLD that we had to sit at.
None of us felt comfortable about sitting right in the middle of the room, at a table that hadn't even been cleared. I told the 4 year old waitress, that we'd like to sit on the other, not yet opened section. Quite rudely i was told "no, you can't , its not open yet. WTF???????
I decided not to make a scene, as i was with my children, and much against my principles, i took the last remaining table.
To be honest, i felt like going totally bonkers and trashing the joint !!!
Food was well below average. French fries(what a surprise), a cardboard steak, horrifically small portions and TOTALLY outrageous soda prices.
I will NEVER, EVER set my foot in ANY Jensens establishment.
Oh, yes, it's not just me. My family agree too.

“Great for children - for adults: Nothing to remember”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

The interior, the service, the food - nothing memorable - neither in positive or negative meaning. BUT our two boys (6 and 9 y.o.) really enjoy the Jensens Bofhus "concept". The children menu presentation and the possibilities of making your own fun combinations is great for the children. And what the children think is memorable - is the possibility to make your own soft ice - and eat as much as they want to. In fact Jensen Bofhus children concept, beats most of the other restaurant chains concepts to attract families.

So if you want lunch or dinner without arguing with your children - and your own ambition is only to get some food: This is a really good place.

If you want to have your own "adult" dinner experience: Try somewhere else.

“Pretty good family restaurant for a chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Not a place for a sophisticated or romantic night out, but beats any other family restaurant chains I know of. Nice and pleasant but can be busy on weekend evenings. Food is standardized as you would expect but ok, and the price is ok. Service is slow as other reviewers mention but friendly. Check out the salad bar before you order it. The meat tends to be kind of dry. Atmosphere is pleasant and a good place if you have kids.

“Average franchise restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Nothing extra ordinary, basic steak and potato kind of food which is OK. Jensen's is a chain and the lack of individuality is visible in the restaurant decor.
Service is average.
