It was a nice day, and we noticed that there were tables set up outside with umbrellas, so we asked to be seated outside. Eating outside was very pleasant. The hostess was super friendly and took us to our table, where Gabby took over as our server, and she was magnificent and very prompt.
This Kopper Kettle is on US-40, and apparently began as an overnight stage coach stop on the National Pike.
The Reuben arrived in 12 minutes, and was served on a beautiful plate with the homemade chips on the side. This was a pretty tall Reuben, and the slices of rye bread seemed extra thick. The bread was dense and very lightly grilled. The taste of the bread seemed to dominate the sandwich more than the other ingredients.
The corned beef seemed pretty mild to me, without any salty flavor at all. I was tempted to add salt to my Reuben for the first time that I can remember. The meat was quite pale in color, but tasted okay—it seemed that the meat was crumbly and mixed with the kraut and dressing very thoroughly. Perhaps they chopped the corned beef before putting it on the sandwich? Anyway, since they had been wise enough to line the sandwich with Swiss cheese on both slices of bread, the dressing, sauerkraut and meat concoction in the middle stayed where it needed to be for the most part, and was very juicy.
There was a lot of Thousand Island dressing but it wasn't super-tangy. There was a slight tang to it, and overall the sandwich didn't have any strong flavors to compete with the taste of the bread. All that being said, the sandwich tasted fine.
The homemade chips had a good flavor and the lemonade I had with my meal was good, also.
