Reuben Sandwich: Sliced corned beef and melted swiss cheese piled onto grilled rye bread and stuffed with sauerkraut. Served with pickle and Kraft 1000 Isle dressing on the side.

The sandwich was cut diagonally and served on a wooden plate next to a small cup of thousand island dressing. The sandwich was on thin grilled, buttered rye, with corned beef against the bottom slice, topped with sauerkraut and then Swiss cheese under the top slice of rye.

Reuben Ruminations:

: We sat in the front room at Toot's, which has a series of tables at the windows, each table having a different consecutive year posted on it. We sat at the table for 1954, which had local Murfreesboro newspapers for that year displayed under the table surface. It was interesting to read some of the articles and advertisements from fifty years gone by. The wait staff was friendly, with half of the women wearing very short shorts (which my wife pointed out to me); the men wore much longer shorts, fortunately. The atmosphere was family friendly and they gave free ice cream and balloons to the kids before they left. The bread on this Reuben was thin, but it was delicious. There was a big stack of beef that had a nice smoky taste--it seemed as though they had grilled the meat separately from the bread and then combined them. The sauerkraut was probably the weakest point of the sandwich--it didn't taste like anything. The cheese could actually be tasted and was very good. A pretty decent sandwich, overall. ()

: The meat was thin, but tender. The sauerkraut was not noticeable. The cheese was good, and the bread was toasted perfectly! Very buttery--nice rye. The onion rings were nicely battered, but too wide and not very tasty. ()
