(This review was added in January 2007) The corned beef was piled high and the Russian dressing seems homemade. The Swiss cheese was plentiful on both sides of the bread. The rye bread was authentic New York style, grilled golden brown. The only setback was the 10.95 price tag.

I'll start out with the positive. The sandwich was really, really big. Okay, that's all there is for the positive. Now for the negative. There's quite a lot of that. We waited over 30 minutes for our meal. The only reason that's impressive is because I think I set a new record for time waiting for a Reuben. The sandwich was barely toasted at all, so that can't very easily explain the delay. The ingredients were all mediocre. The corned beef was bland, the sauerkraut may as well have not been there, the thousand island was not very good at all, the swiss was average, and the bread was too thin to really taste. Now, on to more griping. The place was packed in way too tightly and it was quite noisy. The waitress messed up our drink order and generally acted as if it were a burden to have us in the restaurant. She can rest assured that this particular restaurant will not be burdened with us as customers again. A sign outside of the restaurant proclaims that they were voted the best New York-style deli in Miami. If this is true, I can only assume that the entire city is devoid of anyone who knows how to make a good Reuben. Let's hope I'm wrong.
