Reuben Sandwich Metadata

Presentation: The sandwich was on rye bread, cut diagonally and served back to back on a white plate next to three pickle slices. The sauerkraut was directly against the bottom slice of rye, followed by the layers or corned beef. The beef was covered with melted Swiss, and the top slice of rye bread was secured by a flagged toothpick through each half.

This restaurant has friendly service and a nice family atmosphere. The restaurant is situated so that you have a beautiful view overlooking the Guadalupe River. The sauerkraut on the Reuben was good, but the lack of any dressing was noticeable. The corned beef flavor was great. The bread had a strong caraway flavor and the Swiss cheese actually stood out. There was definitely a lot of tang to the sandwich.

A moist Reuben despite the lack of dressing, but it still needed it, I thought. A good solid wall of flavor. The bread could have been more 'rye'. The service was friendly but inaccurate.
