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!

  • “Was in the area shooting a wedding and wanted to eat something different then the same old stuff. Looked on Yelp and saw the great reviews so we tried it out. Food was great, staff was funny, and the price was perfect for what we got. Next time we are in Cincinnati we will have to stop by again. Give it a shot and go for the Ruben its great!”
