Bellacino's : Bellacinos' description for the Reuben said it would contain tender corned beef, but I was served tough corned beef. Although the sandwich was sub-par, it did fill the gut.

Reggie's Bakery & Catering : My Reuben was very tasty and I would highly recommend it. I was also pretty happy with the way the sandwich stayed together for the amount of juicy food stuffed between the bread. As a side note, Reggie's doesn't have the capacity for a large group of Reuben tasters.

Shapiro's Delicatessen : My Reuben was very good. The sauerkraut had a distinct zing taste with the inch of hot, tender corned beef. The sandwich could have used a little more Thousand Island dressing to enhance the overall taste. I wonder if Phil minded me double dipping in his side of Thousand Island dressing. As far as the atmosphere at the Carmel location, I thought I was in Florida because of all the gray haired people. I'd guess these people aren't on a fixed income.
