Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben: Corned Beef or Turkey, Sauerkraut and Swiss on Grilled Rye

Sandwich presentation:
The Reuben was on oval rye and cut down the middle with a toothpick flag piercing each half, served side to side on a white plate next to the French fries and a side of thousand island dressing. The sandwich was constructed with Swiss cheese lining each slice of grilled rye, with sauerkraut and folded corned beef between the cheese.

Reuben Ruminations:

: The rye bread was grilled, and had a strong caraway flavor. The piles of folded corned beef inside the sandwich were very tasty. The sauerkraut was mild, and blended in with the beef and cheese flavors. Having the thousand island dressing on the side was wonderful. The atmosphere was very much "diner" style with faux formica tabletops and chrome trim. We had to wait a while before being seated--this appears to be a popular place for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was very noisy and full, but friendly--except it was so busy that they were asking people who had finished eating to clear out to make room for others. Overall, I think it was a delicious sandwich and I would love to eat it again. ()

: I ordered their Rachel, which is much the same as the Reuben, except with pastrami. The pastrami was like a meaty, juicy heaven. The thousand island was a little sweet for me, and the sauerkraut a touch bland. However, the bread was toasted perfectly! ()
