Jack's Cafe is on the town square in Dahlonega. I ordered their Combo #2, which was the Reuben with onion rings and a fountain drink or tea for $8.25. I'm not sure I'd been anywhere before that had a Reuben combo on the signboard. The thin rye bread was pretty tasty and grilled well--a little buttery, firm but not crunchy. The thin-sliced corned beef was pretty cheap and not noteworthy. The "line the bread with cheese" trick worked well here. The sauerkraut and thousand island were a little light, but they fit well with this "lightweight" Reuben. The Vidalia onion rings were magnificent. The interior of the cafe itself was somewhat rundown, and featured a lot of chipped paint--but the service was friendly.
