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.
Pros: Best Fries I've had in ages!
