I had a very good meal here after a problem with my wife's order and some unbelievably slow service. There was only one person behind the ordering station and she was so slow in taking orders of the three students ahead of us that I was thinking about leaving and going down the block for a burger or pizza ....

By far my favorite restaurant ever. Jason's offers amazing food, reasonable prices, and the benefit of everything being organic! I had the Beefeater which is a french dip sandwich. 10/10, amazing restaurant and I hope to eat there again!

We checked into our hotel and ordered just after 9pm. Wonderful it was open and they delivered. Jason's is rated 27th in Columbia. Really? The bread was a little tough. Three pieces of bread cut into four small three layered sandwiches. One leaf of lettuce, one small Slice of tomato. Sorry, but as sandwiches I'll take Subway, Firehouse, or Dagwoods... More

Ordered to go. Staff gave me extra cups so I could take out a cup of the FREE soft serve ice cream with every meal! Fresh turkey club did not disappoint! Only issue was parking as my hubby had to circle the block while I ordered. It is close to the capital and downtown. Friendly attentive staff!

Best salad bar in town at a great value. Manager's special with half sandwich, trip to salad bar and dessert under $10 is a great deal!

We went to Jason's Deli for lunch several times. It is always very fast and you can't go wrong with some ice cream. Parking can sometimes be a challenge.

I only rated Jason's "average" because it is an average chain; however, this particular location has excellent customer service. Everyone was friendly and efficient. Clean restaurant. Fast service. Right outside the back door of the Hyatt Hoel in the downtown revitalized district. Perfect for lunch.

We stopped by for a quick lunch, The staff was great and the food was good. We had the reuben and the Papa Joe which is named after their founder. Both of these were good and the server brought these out quickly. They have free soft serve ice cream as well. Two sandwiches with drinks ran about $20.
