“It's about selection options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

There are a number of Jerry's Famous Deli locations, and they all have about the same menu. But what a menu, the choices are endless. It's old school here with Lox and Bagels, herring, corned beef etc. Their Motza ball soup is fantabulous.

“Good Chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

They actually have a lot of food items on the menu; it's more of a chain restaurant ala Denny's, but much more stylish and the food is better too. I'd have no problem eating here, and it probably has something for everyone.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We were out and about all day in la and stumbled upon jerrys. If I had seen the tripadvisor reviews beforehand I probably wouldn't have visited but I have to say it was enjoyable. Massive portions (too much to be honest) but good flavour and well priced. Nachos and houmus to start were great. Mains tasty also but we couldn't eat it all - great service throughout - would visit again we enjoyed it and would recommend. Good value

“A Huge Menu ... But So-So Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

I want to like Jerry's but I have never had anything good here. I think the menue is so big that it must all be frozen food in the back that they are nuking. They have a great location and a lot of seating so it is a good place for large groups to go.

“Overpriced, overpriced, overpriced!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

Same old Jerrys deli. You will get your decent diner food at $15 prices. The only good thing is that they are open late, otherwise find somewhere else to get a decent meal.
