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.

I must preface this review with the fact that I am a huge Ohio State Buckeye fan and so when I had to come to Columbus for a business trip and had some free-time around lunch-time, I knew that I had to hit the Easy Living Deli owned by none other than Vlade Janakievski (former place kicker for the Buckeyes!!)....

Awesome deli sandwiches with meats sliced to order. Make Vlade's eyes light up and order Vlade's special...you'll be rewarded with the best pastrami, beef, and cheese sandwich loaded with red onion and toppings. The reuben is awesome too. The soups are great on a cool or rainy day. Save room for the delicious cookies at the counter! The prices are... More

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!

By far the best deli in town!! The freshest meats, cheese and breads. Always ask for the famous "vlades special!" Not only will you find the highest quality and fresh ingredients but also a fun and inviting atmosphere. Former OSU kicker and owner of Easy Living, vlade janakievski offers a sports memorabilia decorated deli with hospitality. Always look around for... More

The Easy Living Deli is owned by a former kicker for the Ohio State Buckeyes (Vlade Janakievski) and the Buckeyes regalia is out everywhere in the restaurant. Not just owned by the kicker, but also operated by him, he employs his entire family with he and his wife making sandwiches and his daughter ringing up the sales. The store is... More
