This is one helluva reuben. So good reminds me of one of the best bands of all-time. I’ll explain…

The band Cream formed with a simple ethos, to bring together the theee best musicians in england and form the best band on the planet. The ingredients were Jack Bruce – and amazing singer, piano and bass player, Ginger Baker, arguably the best drummer of his day and Eric Clapton, arguably the best guitar player ever. These best-of-the-best mergers don’t usually work, but this time it did (for a while). Fantastic ingredients came together and created an even superior band. It wasn’t about flash or image, it was about a top quality product.

The Bite reuben is a little like that. I’ll admit it ain’t a much to look at, I never really cared about presentation anyway. this reuben is about the ingredients. The corned beef is PERFECT, slow cooked and cut think like I got it directly from Sunday dinner at my Mom’s house. The sauerkraut is super-fresh and crunchy, with just enough swiss cheese toi glue it all together. The dark rye is the final piece of the puzzle. Perfectly toasted to keep everything together and enough thousand island to set it all off.


Honestly this is among the best reubens I’ve EVER had.

Price: $12 with fries

Here it it. AC/DC’s  “Back in Black” reincarnated in the form of a Reuben Sandwich. It’s mean, it’s simple and it’s first perfect score for the site.  This may just be the best Reuben I can remember.

This one-of-a-kind sandwich is loaded with “Black Pastrami”  not corned beef, a pretty serious twist that could spell disaster for other contenders. Not this one.

Russian Dressing instead of Thousand Island? Holy shit, these guys are playing with fire. Worry not, these ninjas of the subteranian, beer-pub Reuben have it on lock-down. This thing is toasted to perfection, with enough of the “stuff” (meat, sauce, cheese, kraut) that I’m… well, stuffed. It’s at the exact perfect temperature where it’s still steaming and crunchy, but not scalding the roof of my mouth.

This Reuben will not only “Shake you all night long” but might also “Give the dog a bone”
