  • “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."

  • “We love this place. So glad it came to Ft. Wright. My 2-yr. old loves the pickles and almost makes a meal on them alone. The reubens are great but you owe it to yourself to experiment. The Spicy Delight is awesome and worth a try. ”

  • “Absolutely fantastic pastrami Reuben on a pretzel bun!  Chicken noodle soup was fresh with Bowie pasta.  The potato pancakes were crispy pillows of heavenly goodness.  Oh, and the pickles were amazing and I dont usually like pickles!  I sure wish we had one in Toronto!! ”
