At prime times there is a wait. Food is good, nice portions. All sandwiches, soups, pasta dishes are good. I think the sandwiches and salad bar is better than the pasta's.

We ate here during a family visit to Des Moines. They have a lot of variety on the menu. The sandwiches were excellent and salad bar amazing and ice cream for dessert.

The service is always prompt at Jason's Deli--which is important to me when I accompany a friend who is a police officer! When you enter, you walk to the long counter and order your food from a sizable menu and then seat yourself. Once your...More
