When we entered this diner, we were greeted with droll humor from the owner. We decided to come on in, in spite of the high prices on the posted menu. Bantering over milkshakes turned into extreme disappointment when the food arrived. The chalkboard sign proclaimed that reubens were available, but when ordered, we were told they were out. The owner/wife suggested pastrami instead. My husband agreed to that, and was brought something that looked like grayish roast beef and tasted terrible. The server acted like he was an idiot for asking about it, and insisted it was pastrami. Maybe it was, but it was awful. I ate a cheeseburger that was mediocre, but at least not awful. The milkshakes were good, if you don't object to spending $6 for one.
Then trying to get an receipt at all, much less an accurate one, was like pulling teeth. There must be some place better to eat in Jacksonville, Ore.

On our travels around Ashland, we decided to take a trip to surrounding areas. Jacksonville is a quaint town worth a stop. Since we always need gluten-free options, we saw an advertisement for MacLevin's and were shocked to find a totally accommodating menu! We were also shocked to find a New York style deli in the midst of a really, really small town! Fun diversion and great GF Ruben!

Small little eatery (serving breakfast and lunch) with "home cooked" (and you know it is !!!) menu choices. Their sandwiches are wonderful - and don't miss the cole slaw !!! Divine....

This place is just gross. Their meat is tough and not like ANYTHING you have ever seen in a deli. I had such high hopes for this place but they are disappointing. I don't know about you, but I prefer my corned beef NOT to be a grayish-green color...avoid and go to the Bellla.

The owner tends to talk to customers.... if you can avoid conversation with the owner - you will love the food. Seriously.
