Great selection of salads, all types of sandwiches, sides and other items! The sandwiches are well-sized...ample but not overly huge portions. Fresh and tasty ingredients. The potato salad is especially wonderful! Will definitely return many times.

Only one thing wrong with this place in my book....man, the menu choice was so long and so good sounding I didn't know what to choose ;-) But my Philly was really tasty, as were the sweet potato fries. V nice staff too. Would recommend

Good sandwiches if you like high grade lunch meat. Been there 2 times and took an unusually long time to get our food. I recommend it if you have plenty of time. Don't go if you have to be at work.

We apologize for any mishap at the counter, if you happened to drop by this past Thursday, we had two very large pick up orders that swamped our lunchtime service.... trainwreck. We pride ourselves in our very quick turnaround from placing order to having your food on your tray or in your bag, often just short moments. Thank You. More

It's ok. Not my cup of tea so to speak. Had their pizza; which is good, but nothing to it really. Nothing special. My friend had a sandwich; which was kind of on the small side, but again it was ok. I doubt I'll be coming back.

My co-workers and I go to Franklin Square Deli often for lunch. The sandwiches are great - very fresh and not overpriced. They make everything when you order it, but the service is fast. Would recommend to anyone wanting deli-style food in Kent.

Growing up in Kent, Franklin Square Deli was a regular stop. Now it's one of the first places I eat when I'm back in town. Sandwiches are huge and served with a dill pickle, and the homemade soups are incredible. The downtown Kent area has changed tremendously and there are many more options to choose from, but the soups and... More
