Jason’s Deli (Boynton Beach)

*****  Jason’s Deli, 870 North Congress Avenue, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426, (561) 738-1820.

Last night I ate dinner at Jason’s Deli located in Boynton Beach.

Jason’s is a chain operation that currently has 188 oultets located throughout the United States. Check its website at for other South Florida locations and menu/pricing details. By the way, #189 is set to open any day now in Pembroke, Pines.

Imagine a very large (about 4,500 sq.ft.) old fashioned  NYC “kosher style” deli circa 1950…that’s the design. You order at a huge counter and the food is delivered to your table. There is a salad bar (which you can buy alone or with a meal), beverage station and a free ice-cream bar. Jason’s menu is loaded with all kinds of soups, salads and sandwiches. There are all kinds of specials, like a 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup for $6.99. From what I saw, you absolutely-positively will find something to eat at this joint. The salad bar had enough stuff to warrant it being a stand alone meal.

Jason’s physical layout is extremely attractive…I just love the old 1950’s look (there are a few flat screen tvs to let you know what century it really is). The Boynton Beach location has been around for about 6 months and appears to be extremely well run and is very clean. It also appears to do an enormous takeout and catering business.

 Last night, I had 1/2 pastrami sandwich and 1/2 corned beef sandwich and I have to tell you, that the sandwiches were piled high with meat and were delicious. I also tried the  beef-gumbo and potato soups and both were also very good.

This deli hybrid…self serve/almost wait-staff is a homerun of an idea. Not quite a buffet joint and not quite a sit-down restaurant, I found Jason’s to have a very novel approach to feeding people. If you try Jason’s, you’ll better understand what I am yapping about.

Like I said before, Jason’s has a huge menu. On price-points, Jason’s is in the same ballpark as your neighborhood deli or sandwich shop.

Jason’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

  1. Was up to Jason’s in Boynton last Monday for lunch. The food isn’t bad but it isn’t anything to write home about either. You are right about the place looking great, but as far as its deli meats there is nothing great here. The prices are fair and the free unlimited sof serve ice cream is a nice touch. Nothing to make a special trip about. Just okay.
