  • “Love Izzy's Reuben's and Potato Cakes. This is the closest to my house. I live in Goshen but it's worth the drive. Had to make a special trip there for St. Paddy's Day. Great customer service. And great food. They have the best Potato Cakes in town.”

    Gregorius H ★★★★★

  • “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.”

    Chris W. ★★★★

  • “Goetta Rueben and potato pancakes!! And those crisp, cold pickles! Yummy ”

    Amanda W ★★★★★

  • “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."

  • “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!! ”
