Description (taken from the menu):
Corned Beef Reuben: none

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was on darkly toasted rye bread, cut diagonally and on wax paper in a paper basket, next to a bag of potato chips. There was a slice of Swiss cheese directly on the bottom slice of bread, followed by the corned beef. On top of the beef came the sauerkraut, thousand island dressing. A second slice of Swiss cheese was added just below the top slice of bread.

Reuben Ruminations:

: The Reuben was already made as we worked our way through the cafeteria line, so it's hard to tell how long it was sitting there. The bread seemed to be a little stale but was good and chewy. I thought the rye bread had a little too much caraway taste. There was a lot of meat on the sandwich with a nice strong flavor. The Swiss cheese tasted good. The cafeteria setup here is very efficient. ()

: The bread was too crunchy, but I liked the rye flavor. It had a lot of meat, but not enough sauerkraut. The ingredients were not spread evenly and kept falling out. ()
