There are a number of various Reuben options on the menu: a Turkey Reuben, Izzy’s Famous Reuben, The “Reubenator,” a Veggie Reuben, a Goetta Reuben, a Pastrami Reuben, a Beef Frank Reuben, a Philly Reuben and a Cod Reuben. Most types of Reuben sandwich you could want are available with various deviations from the classic recipe.
One of the most disconcerting things about an establishment purporting to have the “World’s Greatest Reubens” is that if you order the Reuben, they don’t grill or toast the bread at all—they simply serve the sandwich with soft, unheated, ungrilled bread. I’ve accidentally made that mistake before, simply ordering “a Reuben” to discover that the bread was wholly inadequate in its texture and taste. So I advise everyone to always be sure that they specify that they want their Reuben grilled or toasted when ordering at Izzy’s.
