Danny's Deli was founded in 1978, by George and Mary Georges. They turned an old ice cream parlor on the corner of East 17th and St. Clair Avenue into one of the most popular delis in Cleveland. The mission of the deli was to give generous portions of quality foods at a bargain price. "Danny’s" was named after George and Mary’s son-Daniel. After more than 30 years, they decided to keep it in the family and handed the majority of the responsibility to George’s younger brother, Tony, and his wife Sue.
Danny brought the concept to Columbus for the second location, with his wife Nicki, in 2006. Danny's uncle Joe has since taken over the Columbus location. Meanwhile, our daughter Anna runs Joe's Deli in Cleveland.
For more than 25 years, the traditions of hard work, treating the customers like family, and counting your blessings, have earned us our reputation in the deli business. We work side by side and make a good team to satisfy our customers. Columbus is our city and we would like to thank all of you for your support. We will continue to maintain the highest quality products available which can be enjoyed by dining in the restaurant, taking out, and/or having it delivered to your office or home. The consistent patronage of our customers will always be greatly appreciated and we hope to be of service to you for many years to come!
Your Hosts and Friends,
Joe and Lilly
