Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben Melt: Corned beef with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on light rye bread.

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was served on a plate with French fries and a leaf of lettuce holding several pickle slices. The sandwich was on light rye bread, cut diagonally, and the pieces were arranged facing the same direction. The sandwich had Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on the bottom slice of rye, followed by thickly sliced corned beef and sauerkraut beneath the top slice of rye.

Reuben Ruminations:

: This was a very short sandwich. The bread was wide and thin--lightly grilled but with a very dry taste. The corned beef was okay, but the sandwich as a whole was a little bland. The sauerkraut could have used a little more zing, and the ingredients seemed rather sparse and spread out. While not a bad Reuben, I would probably order one of the Village Inn's other offerings on a future visit. ()
