Reuben Ruminations:

: This restaurant on the Franklin town square has a nonsmoking section in the front facing the courthouse; smoke still drifts quite a bit. The restaurant was dim, with most of the light coming from the front windows. The seats, tables, and decor were clean and in good shape. They offered sweet iced tea, which was delicious, although a straw would have been a nice offering. I did appreciate that our waitress left the check when she delivered our meal. The bread on the Reuben was really really thin, so it was good that they used the cheese-lining trick. The sauerkraut had a nice tang, but the lack of thousand island dressing was a strike against it. The beef was in several thin slices, and the cheese was nice and gooey. It was a good, if somewhat small, sandwich. The onion rings we ordered with our meal were excellent--sweet and tasty. I liked Don & Dona's, and I probably could have asked for some thousand island if I wanted to, but the sandwich held up well-enough without it. This isn't the classiest place around, but I liked it and would be glad to return the next time I visit Franklin. ()
