“good food, good pricing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

this is a small restaurant with with some patio seating when it's not 110 degrees outside. View from the patio is a busy street, not very scenic.
Great selection for breakfast and lunch, I've not eaten there at dinner.
Food is fresh and prepared well, service is quick and cheerful,
They have a nice selection of baked goods and desert as well,
My only complaint is if you have a large group - over 6 - they are limited about how they push tables together to accommodate.

No reservations, and it's crowded on the weekends, but on of the better choices in Porterville for dining.

“Crowded, but the food's really nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Jenny Lynn's is a nice place to meet friends for lunch. Expect to arrive early to have a better chance of getting a table. Food consist of really interesting and delicious sandwich selections and great salads. It stands out from the normal chain operation, by their menu, which is limited to sandwiches, soups and salads. But, that said, the variety in those food types is pretty amazing. If you can't find something on the menu you'd like to try, maybe you're not hungry.

“HOME STYLE CAFE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The lunches here are very good, great salads and sandwiches. There are several different salad offerings which also come with your choice of bread. On my last visit, the staff was very friendly and attentive. The prices are also very reasonable. I haven't tried their dinner entrees yet, but plan on doing this soon.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Stopped here after working on a wildland fire for more than a week and had a great meal. The selection was great, the quality of food great, and the staff friendly. The prices were not too bad too!
