The Most Popular Jason’s Deli Menu Items

Jason’s Deli made its debut in 1976 in Beaumont, TX, and has been serving delicious deli eats ever since.

With 250 locations in 28 states, it has become one of the best sandwich chains for authentic deli favorites.

In addition to delicious sandwiches, the Jason’s Deli menu includes soups, salads, desserts, vegetarian options, and gluten-sensitive meals.

In 2005, the chain became one of the first restaurants to remove artificial trans fats from its food.

Their food is also free of processed MSG, high-fructose corn syrup, dyes, artificial colors, and flavors.

To help you decide what to order on your next visit, I’ve compiled a list of the 20 best Jason’s Deli menu items and ranked them from great to fantastic!

20. Tomato Basil Soup

The Tomato Basil Soup is made with fresh tomatoes simmered with garlic, herbs, and spices that give it an unmistakable flavor, all topped off with cream for a smooth finish.

It’s served hot and can be enjoyed as a meal or side dish.

Unlike other tomato soups that use chicken broth as the base, Jason’s Deli uses an all-veggie broth to keep it vegetarian-friendly.

This classic soup goes well with their vegetarian meal, the Spinach Veggie Wrap.

For non-vegetarians, the Wild Salmon-wich and the Beefeater Sandwich make the perfect combo.
