Although Jenkins changed locations, and in large part changed atmosphere, it remains a local favorite and all-time favorite of alumni returning to Cleveland for Lee University events.

Chicken Salad!!! That is why you come. Enough said. Oh, you have more questions? Well, just ask the Chicken Salad Sammich, he'll tell you what to do. And then he will slap you in the taste buds with pure golden sunshine on your warm palette wishing you would wash him down with a sweet southern tea brewed from the glorious... More

Jenkin's is THE place we take visitors coming to Cleveland if they want the flavor and culture of Cleveland. There is never a time from time it opens for lunch until it closes at night that the parking lot is not full, sometimes overflowing. And about 4 years ago they built a at a new location that is so convenient.... More

They have been famous for chicken salad sandwich. It's good but I don't think it's to die for. I love their chicken and rice soup though that's what I get to go when I don't feel good. Salad bar is ok for its price nothing special. Usually it is quick and service is decent.

Description
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.
