This is cafeteria-type dining, so you go through a line and pick up expensive desserts and then get your entrees and then pay before you get to the table. Honestly, I kind of like paying before I eat, so that I don't have to wait for someone to come deal with the bill when I'm done, but I do prefer to order at the table. But you can't have it both ways, I guess. It was very nice that we were all able to sit together, and there wasn't any music or TV to drown out conversation. The place was clean and bright, but there wasn't much in the way of decor. Staff was friendly, but I can't give an "A" rating to service when I have to stand in line to order. The sandwich was served on a real plate, which was nice. Lots and lots of corned beef, more even than Max & Erma's, of good but not exceptional flavor. I couldn't really taste much else. The sauerkraut and cheese and homemade rye bread were okay, but the sheer quantity of beef overwhelmed them. I saw a little bit of 1000 island dressing but couldn't really taste it as anything other than a little bit of extra moisture. I would have preferred to have paid less money and had half as much beef, but if you want a really beefy Reuben, you'll get your money's worth at Shapiro's.
