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.

Jason's Deli is centrally located in Columbia's Vista region. It offers great sandwiches and an impressive salad bar. It is a good value for the money.

I just had the salad bar. Nothing at all to brag about. Seriously, how can you mess up a salad bar? Not bad, but I would rate this as average only!

Our family tried Jason's Deli on our last visit to Columbia. We were very happy with the menu selections available. My husband especially liked the wild salmon sandwich. I had the lighter portion of the Beefeater which was a good-sized sandwich. They provide something unique by having free soft serve ice cream available to their diners.

Had food delivered many times and it was always fast service and great food. It's been awhile since I've been but I'm sure the service is still great!
