Italian and Reuben subs were very good. Fresh bread and homemade ingredients went into the food. Time was taken to prepare everything. Nice laid back atmosphere.

Best deli around & best smoked turkey sandwich ever. I have been coming here for years, but sadly not much recently cause I live out of town. Was so excited to visit again and still quick, friendly service & great food.

Definitely a great deli. Great atmosphere for all OSU fans but the real star here is the food. Great variety of handmade sandwiches, generously sized and value priced. Easy access right on Lane Ave just a couple of miles from the 'Shoe.

Not only the best deli, but the best value for your dollar in Upper Arlington and Campus! Been going for years and it has been superb every single time! If you are a football fan, you never know who you may see eating lunch!
