Description (taken from the menu):
Rueben [sic]: Daily Special -- this is not a regular menu item

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was served on a plate with French fries, a pickle spear, and a parsley garnish. The sandwich was on marbled rye bread, cut down the middle, and the pieces were arranged facing the same direction. The sandwich had Swiss cheese on the bottom slice of rye, followed by corned beef, thousand island dressing, sauerkraut, and a second slice of Swiss cheese beneath the top slice of rye. A toothpick was employed to keep each half of the sandwich intact.

Reuben Ruminations:

: This Reuben had a strong flavor of sauerkraut. The corned beef was thick and rather flavorful, although not very tender. The bread had a nice chewy crunch. Overall the sandwich was a strong contender and was nice and tangy. We just happened to end up in Twin Falls on a day when they offered a Reuben for their special. Our waitress said that it used to be on their menu and is not typically available. ()

: Very bold--a distinct Reuben. The corned beef was a little tough, but it may be because it was 'real', not nasty luncheon meat. The bread was a tad crunchy, but yum! The pickle was excellent, and the server offered a choice whether to include lemon with the iced tea. If you're driving through Twin Falls, you should eat here whether the Reuben is available or not!
