Reggie's Bakery & Catering : I personally like lots of thousand island dressing, so in that area, Reggie's did not disappoint. Size was okay, but I've seen bigger. The best part was seeing all my old buddies.

Union Jack Pub : I liked the crunchiness, but the corned beef and sauerkraut were both somewhat bland. The fries were good. The service was slow.

Shapiro's Delicatessen : I was surprised that for the amount of meat, it was still well-balanced. I liked the kraut in the middle of the meat. I admit, I did get extra thousand island, but it didn't really need it--I just like sauce!

McGilvery's Pub and Eatery : Overall, pretty good. The bread needed to be toasted or grilled longer. The kraut amount was perfect, but slightly vinegary. The thousand island on the side was great. The smoking environment was very irritating.

Schlotzsky's Deli : Although the traditional Reuben is grilled, I rather enjoyed the Pumpernickel Rye bun. It's messy enough as it is without having buttered and grilled bread to contend with, so the bun was a nice change. The meat was lean and plentiful. I usually ask for more Thousand Island, but this one seemed adequately dressed, even for me.
