“Great lunch place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Great place to grab a quick lunch. Reminds me of a cafeteria deli you would find in a larger city. They are always quick and the food is always good. Remember to bring cash cause they don't take CC.

“One of a kind! Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2013

I love this place. The sign at the cash register says cash, checks, or IOU. The food is good, the portions are large enough to leave full, the prices are fair and there is outstanding variety. You can get several types of soup, several salads, pasta salad, potatoe salad, fries, and several other sides. There's a great variety, and there are probably 50 different sandwiches you can get. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer, good value, great place to get lunch.

“Good Food if you don't mind being harassed on the way in...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

I love the food at the No Name Deli but won't be going back anymore. This is a shame because not only do they have good food, everyone who works there is friendly and goes out of their way to help you. I especially will miss their flavored teas...oh, the peach sweet tea is to die for! Unfortunately, I won't be going back because even though there is a no loitering sign posted by the Columbia City Police, the homeless stand just beyond the sign and panhandle aggressively and frankly, I don't always feel safe.

“No name but great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

An unassuming name and building on the corner hide? a true gem. Whether you live in Columbia and have not yet tried No Name or are visiting and just want to try something different without a bunch of frills, check out No Name Deli.

“Big Plates!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012

Everything here is huge! Whatever you get for lunch, you will either eat the rest for dinner or give it to the kids/hubby for dinner. They don't even have normal sized sandwiches, they are piled high with whatever's in the middle. The food is great, and the prices are cheap. Only thing is, they aren't open long during the week and no weekend hours. The parking is a mess, but it's worth the wait to get that good food! :)
