There are multiple locations, ...

There are multiple locations, but this is my favorite by far. My one complaint is that it is a little bit overpriced, but you get large portions and it is so delicious that I can't complain too much. FIRST off all Jerry's has anything you could POSSIBLY want. Second, the staff there is freaking AWESOME. I can't recall anything wrong in the picture while dining there after nice bowling game. I love their sandwiches (especially the ones made with chicken) and their portions. Your tummy w...view moreon't be unsatisfied after a nice meal at Jerry's believe me!view less

The foods fine, but overpriced to say the least. Plus the staff doesn't give two cents about you. I called them 15 minutes away while in my car to pick up an order. They put me on hold the entire time. I even walked in with my cell phone still on hold and made it to the front of the take out line (there was 1 guy waiting for food and 2 staff behind the counter) and told them I was the one person still on hold! They didn't care. I even asked the manager what's going on and he just said ...view more""Nothing I can do about it, your here now"". OF COURSE I WAS THERE! THEY NEVER PICKED UP THE LINE WHILE THERE STAFF WAS WAITING AROUND DOING BARELY ANYTHING!view less

Jerry's Deli in Studio City

In the past, when in LA on vacation, we have made it a point to eat at Jerry’s “Famous Deli” on Ventura Blvd in Studio City. \r
We decided to give Jerry’s a try last night (on Father’s Day) only to find a half empty parking lot. All the other restaurants were overflowing with diners, but Jerry’s was not. That should have warned us, but we decided to give it a try anyway. \r
The place has a rundown look, the autographed photos on the wall are gone, and the booths are shabb
...view morey and worn. The place was about 1/3 filled. The bakery and deli selection in the front was sparse.\r
The “new” menu has changed considerably – much fewer choices and more advertising. The sandwiches (which used to be HUGE) now come in two sizes – LA Size (4 oz) and NY Size (7 oz).\r
The complimentary appetizer plate (dill pickles and green tomatoes) are no longer served.\r
We decided to share a corned beef sandwich on rye and split a bowl of their Hungarian Goulash. The goulash (only served on Sundays now) was so over-spiced as to be unedible. \r
The sandwich looked and tasted like store-bought, served on thin cut light rye. The corned beef was thin and processed and served in a pressed rectangle between the two slices of bread. You had to break up the cube of corned beef and spread out the thinly sliced corned beef to cover the bread. The sandwich was served without a pickle.\r
The side dishes (cole slaw or potato salad, baked beans or chili) all tasted like something from the supermarket – tasteless and bland.\r
We asked the waiter if things had changed – he said that the owner had died and the son had taken over.\r
We quickly finished our sandwich and left.\r
We would NEVER return nor would we recommend anyone else go to Jerry’s.\r

Jerry's is going down hill

This place is crazy.\r
Prices are way out of whack and the clientele is out of control.\r
Food is just o.k.\r
The servers where the only redeeming part of the experience.

Not Feeling Well After Eating At Jerry's

I wish I had looked at the reviews before I ate lunch here! I just tried this place for the third and last time! My boss treated us all to lunch and he picked this place or else I would not have eaten here more than once. I ordered the overpriced buffalo chicken sandwich. It was greasy and only came with a bit of wilted lettuce and some soggy fries. No tomato or pickle. I immediately felt sick and had a horrible headache. Now that I read about the MSG content in their food I know why -...view more I am very allergic! Now, about another time I ate at Jerry's, I ordered eggs benedict - one of my favorites. Well, they nearly put me off of eggs benedict forever! Not only was it cold, greasy, and disgusting, but there was a hair in my food! Gross!!view less

It burned down once, let's pray it will again!

Stay away if you care about life as we know it.\r
I used to love this place. Even went bowling. I'd use this place to have lunch with old friends from Universal Studios. We?d have a great meal, they didn?t rush you, there was always big Deli portions, so you had a nice doggie bag to take home, the dill green tomatoes and pickles were great, and they refilled the tray over and over, and the price was reasonable.\r
Not anymore! Sometimes it?s best to trust the signs of fate. This p
...view morelace burned down about five years ago, and it took about two years to rebuild it. Something happened. Either they didn?t have enough insurance money, or they got greedy, or the good chefs burned down with the original place, because now, simply said this place is a nightmare! The trademark deli sandwiches look and taste more like something you buy out of desperation at an AM/PM at two in the morning, the food is tasteless and obvious of the lowest quality, and I got the men's room trots from eating the pickles. And two of my lunch guests spent the rest of the day throwing up. Seriously.\r
My chef salad, which used to be big enough to feed a soccer club, was so small that I actually said to the waitress ?No I think he ordered the dinner salad?. And she said ?No, that?s the chef salad?. I asked her if the chef was Mini-Me.\r
Point is, Art?s Deli, a great Valley tradition for over fifty years is only two block East on Ventura. Go there. Art is still around. He cares. He loves his customers, and the food shows it. Unlike ?Jerry?, who is obviously an uncaring greedy punk, who just wants to make a quick buck before the Anti-Defamation League closes down his greasy spoon.

Soup contains MSG - I'll miss their chocolate cake

I got chicken rice soup when I felt sick last week. Soon after I had to rush to the doctor for a shot of Benadryl. There was so much MSG in my soup, I had an allergic reaction - my whole body broke out in hives. That has never happened to me before, ever.\r
I'm impressed the manager was honest when he later told us the ingredients. Unfortunately, this means I can't recommend the restaurant and I'll never go back.

Great food and great selection of food

Jerry's is a fun place to grab something to eat with friends. They are open 24-hours a day and feature both indoor and outdoor seating. The only downside to the place is that it is usually quite busy, which means it is really loud. It is not the place for a romantic meal. Their menu is quite extensive and features something for everyone.

GOOD...not the best.

All the jerry's are good delis. But any true deli lover knows that their corned beef and pastrami are not the real thing. The only place in LA that has true quality pastrami is Langer's downtown. But beyond this Jerry's has good, fresh deli fare!
