Introducing a Beast of Sandwich!
To celebrate our 110th Anniversary, Izzy’s created the 110 Reuben Sandwich – a 5-pound sandwich designed for food competitions.
Your impressive feast begins with a super-sized potato pancake (fresh shredded Idaho potatoes mixed with onions and special seasonings and fried to a perfect golden brown). Then we add over 1 lb. of Izzy’s Famous Corned Beef, which starts with USDA Choice brisket and a special blend of seasonings, cooked fresh every day and sliced to order. Next we add a colossal pile of fresh, crisp sauerkraut, gouged with Izzy’s special dressing. Your sandwich is then smothered with imported Swiss cheese. Finally, this beast of a sandwich is assembled on a gigantic specialty baked poppy seed oval loaf. We finish the ginormous sandwich with a jumbo order of Izzy’s own kosher sliced pickles on the side.
This sandwich weighs over 5 lbs and is not for the faint of heart.

“If you love good old fashioned corned beef (and a variety of things related to it) you can't go wrong with Izzy's. Awesome potato pancakes and their pickles are my favorite anywhere. They even have some really good vegetarian options.”

“Amazing!!! My second day coming back for lunch. Both corned beef and pastrami. Potato pancakes are delicious with a bit of green onion. Must, must stop if you are even close!!! Great service. ”

“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. ”

“Came here about 3 years ago while knocking of Great American Ballpark on my list of all ballparks across America. Hands down the best Reuben sandwich Ive ever had, and as a New Yorker I know Reuben sandwiches. Would love to come back again in the future. ”
