Food Challenges Restaurants

The Dagwood Challenge at The Ohio Deli and Restaurant

the dagwood challenge

Named after Dagwood from the Blondie comic strip, The Dagwood Challenge is a massive sandwich that is one of the biggest cold cut sandwiches I’ve ever seen in my life. I have no doubt in my mind that there is no way all this food could fit in my tiny little stomach, but for those of you that think you can handle the challenge, check out The Dagwood next time you’re in Ohio and let us know how you fare!

The Dagwood Challenge

  • The Dagwood sandwich consists of 21 oz of cold cut meats (7 oz of turkey, 7 oz of roast beef and 7 oz of ham), cheese and mayo on french bread along side a pile of french fries.

Food Challenge Rules/Prizes

  • Prize: If completed you receive your picture on the Wall of Fame along with a free T-shirt that says “I devoured The Dagwood”. If you lose you receive a T-Shirt that says ” The Dagwood Kicked My !**”

About the author


I'm a married man in his 30's who doesn't really "like" food. If it weren't for my wife I would be living off of pizza and cheeseburgers for the rest of my life. Follow me as I venture slightly out of my comfort zone to try different foods and restaurants.
