No Name Deli is a local favorite featuring ample portion lunches for under $10. Be prepared for a long line and a crowded/cramped/noisy dining area during your visit. However, don't let these minor negatives keep you away. The line moves quickly, your food is delivered fast, the staff is friendly, and the food quality is very good.

Food is fantastic. Fresh and made to order. Unique atmosphere, quick service, and great value. Arrive before 12 or after 12:30 to beat the lunch crowd. Parking is tricky but there are normally metered parking spots on the street so bring change. Pretty sure you still need cash to pay for your meal as well.

Are the only reasons I come back to Columbia. Glenn has done a great job dishing out good food and managing a lunch crowd that fills the place up between 11:30 and 1:00. Get there early or after 1:30. For fifteen years I ate here at least twice a week. I've eaten almost everything on the menu, and I can... More

The place is always crowded for all of the obvious reasons. The food is simply that good. The sandwiches are fresh and prepared right on the spot. The potato salad is a hit too.

Had lunch there this week ordered the chicken salad on a croissant. The food was fantastic and a great value. I can always go there for a great lunch.

Every now and then I crave egg salad. I can make it. Just not as good as No Name does. Whatever you like on the menu, they do it well. Soups are thick which is the only way I like mine. Don't go to have a private conversation but to be in the know on Columbia hot spots for a... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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.
