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!

  • “Izzys always has good sandwiches, particularly any Reuben variation because the sauerkraut is always crisp and tart. The pickles are the real star though, and we inhale as many as possible every time we visit. The potato pancakes are unique and definitely worth a try - particularly if you are expecting something like a hash brown patty or a soft doughy cake. ”

  • “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. ”
