The 110 Reuben is now Famous!

“In the battle of Man V Food, ___________won,” beams the Travel Channel's Adam Richman at the end of every episode. On October 12th Cincinnati found out whether man won or the 110 Reuben won!  If you missed it, the show airs throught October on the Travel Channel.

Izzy’s was honored to have Adam Richman and his Travel Channel crew from Man V Food Nation in town in August taping an episode featuring their 110 Reuben. Local competitor, Adam Turer, attempted a rematch. He had previously lost the challenge earlier in the summer. With Adam Richman’s help, he was confident he could win.

Man V Food Competitor, Adam Turer and Izzy’s President, John Geisen (along with crowds of customers, fans, and friends) watched the show together at the Main Street location, where filming was held on Aug.19, 2011.  If you watched, you know who won. If you didn't watch, you can catch airings of "Episode Cincinnati" throughout October on the Travel Channel.

Watch Izzy’s Facebook page for more details and behind-the-scenes stories and photos! Visit the Man V. Food Nation website for photos of Adam's visit to the Queen City.

Izzy's extends a special thanks to all our customers, fans, and staff who helped make Man v. Food at Izzy's happen!

  • “Love this location!  My fiance does too.  Told staff was our first time and she was patient and helpful with menu suggestions and questions.  We have already been back. Tommy, Andy, Reuben all amazing. And the potato pancake is terrific!  Thanks so much for being awesome, when we were having a bad day! ”

    Jasmine C. ★★★★★

  • “Recently got a couple sandwiches to go from Izzys after hearing about how good it is. I REALLY enjoyed the Turkey Reuben, and loved the fact that they purposely include a small container of their delicious pickles and thousand island dressing. It also came with a giant and deliciously chewy potato pancake! The staff was quick, and the sandwiches were put together just right. ”

    Shannon D. ★★★★

  • “Love the corned beef and potato cakes. Don't forget extra pickles.”

    Ed P. ★★★★★

  • “Im a big fan. I had lunch on a weekday and it was 90% full. The service was excellent.  It was my first time and everyone was very patient and explained what that Izzy is known for their reuben. The Reuben was amazing. The pickles were also amazing. I would recommend Izzys to my friends. ”

    Joel L. ★★★★

  • “Heaven on a plate.  Cant go wrong with just about any sandwich, but the Reuben is my favorite!”

    Valerie B. ★★★★★

  • “One of the best restaurants in the city. Hands down the best Reubens around. ”

    James M. ★★★★★

  • “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.”

    Colette F. ★★★★★

  • “First time having Izzy burger. Incredible! ”

    Rob D ★★★★★

  • “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. ”

    Sam B. ★★★★★

  • “My Sister brought me a Rueben from there & it was phenomenal & the potato pancakes are out of this world!! I only wish that there was an Izzys here in Buffalo, NY. ”
