grilled just right

not enough dressing

Pappy’s Grill had a lot of bright colors inside—pastels with chairs that were close to lavender, salmon and turquoise. The dining room seemed fresh and clean and country music was playing overhead while we were there. This is the type of restaurant where they have paper placemats with advertisements from surrounding businesses.

We were there on a weekday during their busy lunch rush, so the service was somewhat delayed, which was understandable.

The corned beef on their Reuben had very thick slices, with a noticeable amount of fat still throughout the meat. As you can likely see from the photo, there was quite a layer of sauerkraut and the sandwich had a strong sauerkraut flavor, although not overwhelming. The Thousand Island dressing was a little light—I wished there had been just a little more. The rye bread was thick and the crust of the bread had pumpernickel overtones.

Overall this Reuben was grilled just right and the sandwich tasted good. I substituted the onion rings for the crinkle cut fries, and they did not disappoint.

While the sandwich was great, overall I gave the experience a B+, as the atmosphere and service could have been a little better. I would certainly eat the Reuben here again if I'm ever back through Heath, Ohio.
