Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben: corned beef, sauerkraut, sauce, and swiss on rye bread

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich had Swiss cheese lining both slices of rye bread. The bottom slice of cheese held the corned beef, topped by sauerkraut, then the sauce (unsure of composition) beneath the second slice of Swiss cheese.

Reuben Ruminations:

: The Reuben was excellent. Absolutely excellent. The thing that really stood out was the sauerkraut. I've never had better sauerkraut. It's worth going just for that. There was a lot of their sauce, and most sandwiches would have fallen apart. However, the bread was so perfectly grilled that it managed to hold together. The corned beef was the only ingredient that didn't earn an excellent or a perfect, but it was still pretty good. The service was very friendly and prompt. There are many excellent restaurants in the Chicago area, and Kuhn's has been added to my list of the ones I must visit. ()
