Blue Ash Chili is a neighborhood diner--not overly modern but still clean and friendly. I was somewhat disappointed that the Reuben was not a double-decker sandwich like their other deli sandwiches--but I get the feeling they would have made it that way had I asked. The corned beef on this Reuben was the "pre-chewed" style that was already shredded or whatever the actual process was. The corned beef was delicious, though, with a deep delicious flavor. It was the meat's flavor that was dominant, though. The sauerkraut was also pretty good, but the dominance of the beef made the cheese and thousand island unnoticeable. I got the onion rings for a side, which were a little too greasy and teh onion wasn't very flavorful. The Reuben was good, but it's not really their specialty. You should try their various chili and deli sandwich offerings, which are the reason why people return here.
