Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben: Slowly roasted corn [sic] beef served on grilled rye bread with Swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing and sauerkraut.

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was served on a plate with a small pickle slice. The sandwich was on thinly sliced bread, cut diagonally and stacked stylishly. The top half of the sandwich had a toothpick through it. The sandwich had Swiss cheese on the bottom slice of bread, followed by sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, corned beef, and a second slice of Swiss cheese beneath the top slice of rye.

Reuben Ruminations:

: The corned beef was delivered in thick flavorful strips. There was a good mix of sauerkraut and dressing. I'm not sure the bread was rye because it didn't have any caraway taste to it. Overall it was a pretty good Reuben. The pickle spear that came with the sandwich was pretty nasty; the lemonade wasn't very sweet and almost tasted like straight lemon juice. The atmosphere of the restaurant was an upscale treatment of an old-style Denny's or Sambo's type of building. The wait staff wore bow ties and tuxedo shirts--they were definitely going for an upscale look. ()
