Dancin' at Izzy's!

Diners at Izzy's got a special treat when Maryland Dance Energy stopped in for lunch! Watch a video of their performace.

This amazing dance troup stopped in the tri-state all the way from Glenelg, Maryland.  They were on their way to a competition, and gave everyone at the Covington location some unexpected entertainment on February 19.  Now we're not saying our Reuben's will get you up and moving like this troup, but they'll sure make feel like dancing!

  • “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."

    Wana R. ★★★★★

  • “Slightly different take on a deli. A small place where customers and food are shown lots of care. I had corned beef w eggs on top; all sandwiches come with large potato cake. Our staff was in town for a convention and ate there often. We were never disappointed.”

    Rob D ★★★★★

  • “Has the best reuben of my life (thus far)!!  Nothing fancy about this joint - very laid back and casual.  Staff was friendly and I could tell that they have a lot of regulars that come in for lunch.  I ordered a reuben and fell in LOVE!  Not greasy, not soggy, lots of awesome corned beef and sauerkraut, and the bread was super fresh. Izzys is on our list of places to eat when we are in Cincy.   Top 3 for sure! ”

  • “Good, quick service and delicious food. Sort of a New York deli menu with a diner feel. Famous for Reubens. Their potato pancakes are the real winner though, don't miss them! Their soups are always good too.”
