The Red’s Reubenator!

The Red’s Reubenator!

CINCINNATI - The sweet taste of victory is now available... in a sandwich!

On Wednesday Izzy's debuted a new menu item celebrating the Reds Divisional Championship. Owner John Geisen says he's thinking about calling it the Reds Rubenator.

"Everytime something great happens in Cincinnati, or things that happen that aren't so great, we try to come to the occasion," said Geisen. "With the Reds doing this for the first time in 15 years, we thought, we're going to be a part of this."

So what can your taste buds expect from the Rubenator? For $8.95 you get Broiled Beef Franks (like the ball park!) and Izzy’s Famous Corned Beef  topped with Sauerkraut, Ball Park Mustard, Imported Swiss Cheese served on Rye Toast.

Geisen and some of his employees also came up with a jingle to celebrate the new sandwich, to the tune of Take Me Out to the Ball Game:

Take me out the the ball game....

Take me out for some kraut
Buy me some pickles and tater cakes
Only the best ones that Izzy’s makes
Let me root root root for the home team…

  • “Izzy's is a great place. a staple of downtown Cincy. They are known for their Ruben. However I recommend the Izzy's Mex (spicier Ruben) or "The Suzzy" which is turkey and cranberry-orange relish with cream cheese... it's better than it sounds.”

  • “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!! ”

    Robert P. ★★★★★

  • “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."
