good food at a good price – I went there for lunch today with a group from work. I did the Dagwood challange and got a free t shirt. That sundwich is an absolute monster 5 to 6 inches tall and every bit as big round and comes with a mountain of french fries. All for only 8.95 i've spent more then that befroe and left hungry. It tasted great high quality meats and the fries were the best i've had at a restraunt. Their prices are reasonable and good sized portions. We all ordered differnt things and everyone was more then happy with thier order. You can tell it's an older place but from what i could see everything looked clean. The service was decent I've defently had worst service and also had better. It was pretty busy when we got there. Our order came pretty quickly. I don't go to Columbus much, except for work as I live in rural fairfield county. But if i get the chance i would deffently go back again. Don't think I will get the dagwood again its just a bit much. I just wanted to try it so i could say that I did it.
Not Fancy, but Pretty Darn Good! – I went to Ohio Deli this afternoon with my son, and a friend. The two of them decided to have at the Dagwood Challenge! I opted for the Buckeye Burger w/fries. My burger was pretty big, and ended up being more than I could handle. The burger was just a bit above average. I would not make the trip there again for the burger alone. But the fries were wonderful! Best fries I have had in a while. I actually abandoned the burger halfway through to focus on the fries. As for the Dagwood. Well, to put it quite simply..it is huge. About the size of your head...not including the fries. According to the fellas trying the challenge, the sandwich was good, but as with all things you can get too much of a good thing. But isn't that the point. My son managed to finish the sandwich, and got his t-shirt and pic on the wall. My friend did not.
All in all, it was a nice place to eat. It was kind of cool to eat in a place featured on TV. Is it fancy? No. It is a diner style place, and definitely has that laid back feel to it. It is an older place, so it shows some wear, but I did not see a single fly or cobweb in the place. Our table was clean, and our waitress was decent. Food was reasonably priced especially considering portion sizes. One thing worth noting is that the other patrons in the place were very friendly. Just regular nice folks.
Filthy – I think this place should be shut down until they learn what clean means. If the dinning area is dirty, which it is it makes me wonder what the kitchen or the coolers look like ! If germs don't bother you then this place is for you ! Hillbilly heaven ! Really dirty and gross is the bottom line !
Take the challange – The challenge is fun doesn’t look hard but after half of the plate is down you start to grind and slow to a near halt... Overall the food wasn’t bad but it was not what I would consider great. For deli I would give it 7 out of 10. It was your average sandwich place. Did anyone else see the champ who pounded that monster of a meal away in like 5 min!!!!!!!!!! That guy is a freak of nature!!!! Try the challenge and that time will boggle your mind too. (I don’t think my vacuum cleaner could suck it up that fast)
Dirty deli – The sandwiches were just, okay. The tables were generally not bussed, flys and cobwebs everywhere.Ususally need to eat outdoors to have that many flys land on you while you eat. Filling meal, but worth the trip.
Great food – I have been eating at the deli for a long time and the food and service has always been very good. I think when people say the place is dirty They are not aware that that building is really OLD. The last time I was there they had just painted the bathrooms and they looked good. And I have NEVER seen spider webs.
awesome food – great food. Great price. Highly recommended!
Food excellent, restaurant disgusting... – Order the turkey reuben on sourdough...it's perfect. The fries are awesome as well. With the food being this good...just close your eyes and ignore the filth surrounding you. I hope this is not how it always is, otherwise, everyone that is there truly just likes the food. Sitting at the table while waiting for our order, cob webs with spider eggs were hanging from the ceiling. The dust on the dividing wall was so thick that it was furry...how could someone not see it to wipe it away. You didn't want to touch anything as everything seemed to have a film of grease. On a visit to the ladies room I found there was no toilet paper or hand soap. Trash over flowing from the waste container and smelled awful. Could this be the same bathroom the staff uses? I hope not! Staff for the most part could care less that you were there or not. Waitress never smiled and barely spoke.The guy that sat us was friendly. It felt like you were a bother to be there. The food was good, but I certainly questioned the prep area and if it was as dirty as the rest of the place. With as many people that were there I would think they would put some effort on aesthetics in making the place at least look clean and have a little customer service.
food OK..bathrooms NASTY – I have been going to the Ohio Deli since it opened and although the food is still pretty good..the look of the
Place is disgusting.. the bathroom is VERY NASTY! they really need to remodel and do something about the appreance, the last time I was there I refuse to go back because of this.
