Ate here with family our last day in town. The Chicken Salad really lives up to its name. Everyone enjoyed their food and the salad bar was a nice touch. It's a fun place.

This one wins a clean plate award! I had the cajun delight, a peice of blackened talapia over cajun rice topped with crawfish etoufe and it was just rediculously good. I'd go back right now. The kids love reuben sandwiches and said these were spot on.

Never had a bad meal here. Service is great, fast, and has the southern style we love. Food is always hot, taste great and your drink can't empty as they keep it full. Can't say enough good about this place. Thank you.

Jenkins Deli has really good food. I think I've liked everything I've tried there. My favorites are the hoagie, french fries, chicken salad sandwich, super turkey sandwich, and the salad bar. The prices are fair and there is plenty of parking. It's a pleasant place to eat.

I cam only eat half of it and took the other half home for lunch the next day. I highly recommend Jenkins Deli. Be sure to try the fried dill pickles as... More

My family loves Jenkins. Food is good and service is always friendly. They are known for their chicken salad but we like the endless salad bar and also the French dip.

Their food is excellent and the dining room is great for business meetings. They have a small side room for meetings that looks like it can hold about 20 guests. I've never had a bad meal there and it's close to the center of town near and our office and the Church of God HQ. Very convenient and staff are... 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.
