  • “Longtime fans "love" this landmark Cincinnati deli with locations throughout the city serving "hearty", "overstuffed" sandwiches (particularly the "terrific" Reuben) along with "famous" pickles and "second-to-none" potato pancakes; although the decor reminds some of a grade-school lunchroom, it's affordable and the staff is "a hoot."

  • “Recently got a couple sandwiches to go from Izzys after hearing about how good it is. I REALLY enjoyed the Turkey Reuben, and loved the fact that they purposely include a small container of their delicious pickles and thousand island dressing. It also came with a giant and deliciously chewy potato pancake! The staff was quick, and the sandwiches were put together just right. ”
