This place came highly recommended by our hotel staff (who go to college near the restaurant) and we enjoyed the atmosphere, but the food seemed to take forever and it was not the best when we got it. The fries were soggy and cold, Mac...More

Adequate, but not sensational. The chicken salad sandwich had very little flavor. Price is a bit high for quality and portion of food.

Have met there for business lunches many times and the food and service is always great. There is sometimes a wait, but usually at lunch not too long but is worth it.

Tonight we decided to try Jenkins for the first time. I’ve read/heard that their chicken salad was the best. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and my boyfriend ordered the spicy chicken tenders. When we received our food, it was far from good. My chicken...More

Jenkins Restaurant and Deli has been family owned and operated since March 15, 1976, serving many generations over the past 39 years. Recognized in National Geographic, Southern Living, Guns and Gardens, Tennessee Tourism website, and many local and regional publications. Known for our outstanding cuisine, long standing excellent service, warm hospitality, and community involvement. The all-time favorites are still on the menu; Jenkins' famous chicken salad, French dip, buffalo burger, and specialty soups and market items. New to the menu is a much-requested large fresh salad bar that has something for everyone. Our new location has a fun family atmosphere featuring a large model 'G' gauge train circling the dinning, a two sided fireplace with covered patio, and tons of local memorabilia tucked into every corner. Ask about our party room that seats up to 40 people, perfect for business or club meetings, wedding or baby showers, birthday parties or a social gathering.
