Ambassador Bible College serves lunch to its students each day of classes, as a part of their tuition. As a staff member, I can purchase the lunch for $3 per day, which is a value that is pretty much impossible to beat for a Reuben sandwich. The sandwich that was delivered would retail for at least $10 in a restaurant, so I had to give it an A+ for value.
The chef, Micah Gunn, piled a lot of corned beef onto my sandwich—a nice thick layer of sliced meat that was juicy and warm. Fortunately, to complement the massive amount of beef, there was a liberally applied layer of sauerkraut mixed with Thousand Island dressing to balance out the tastes of the sandwich. And by lining both slices of rye bread with a slice of Swiss cheese, it helped to give the needed stability to the sandwich, like bookends of Reubeny goodness.
The marbled rye bread was nicely grilled and it always warms the heart to see the corned beef and the sauerkraut extending past the edge of the bread, to tantalize you to dig into the sandwich. The Thousand Island dressing was sweet but it was balanced by the tang of the sauerkraut.
Overall, I would have to say that I really couldn't ask for anything more from the sandwich—other than maybe to have a second one. But self-control was the order of the day, and the one Reuben was perfectly satisfying.
