I've even eating here every time I'm in town on business for the last 10 years. Classic deli served up by grandma. Always fresh bread and toppings, the buttermilk brownies are just like grandma used to make...because she still does at PJ's!

Tried the deli while waiting in Newton. There were a lot of sandwich and wrap options - pretty much anything you could want. They didn't have salad options. Prices were good, but I'm used to prices in larger cities. Very friendly and willing to make anything you wanted made-to-order. The soup (baked potato) was REALLY good if you like creamy... More

Tables and booths are set up with a long, large-windowed view of downtown Newton and the Jasper County Courthouse. •All ingredients are top-notch. Our personal favorite is the "super... More

I love this place! They have several different kinds of sandwiches which can be modified anyway you want. Several kinds of bread to pick from including croissants. The sweet and sour pasta is wonderful.

very expensive and the sandwich was not that big to make it worth the money I have eat there a few times and each time I felt the amount of meat you get on the sandwich for the price was not worth it.

I've been going to PJs deli since it opened.....over 20 years ago. Phill and staff are very accommodating. If you want to modify a sandwich, they are willing to do so. The menu has a variety of sandwiches. Some of my favs are: turkey crunch, autumn turkey and salsa wrap. You can get a meal deal which includes a cup... More

My wife and I travel through the area every month to 6 weeks. We plan the drive around times we can stop at PJs! We have yet to have anything there that was even close to disappointing.

I have been enjoying PJs Deli since it first opened! The food is crazy good! Be sure to order early and be prepared to wait, but it is so worth it! My favorites: The Affair and Bagel Club! Salads are wonderful too!
