Aaron's Food Adventure

Izzy's is a sandwich deli shop located in Cincinnati, Ohio. About two months ago, they were featured on the Travel Channel's hit series "Man v. Food Nation," where one MvF Nation member attempted to eat the "110 Reuben," a massive 5+ pound Reuben sandwich. I ventured to the original Main Street location, the site of the MvF Nation taping.

The corned beef was excellent, among some of the best I've ever had. The seasoning, brining, and slow-cooking process yields this comforting aura when I eat it. Just soft, tender, and flavorful. I loved the melted Swiss cheese here, and even better that they used a broiler to melt that bad boy down. The dressing (probably 1000 Island or something similar?) has that sweet component that combines perfectly with the drained sauerkraut.

  • “Good, quick service and delicious food. Sort of a New York deli menu with a diner feel. Famous for Reubens. Their potato pancakes are the real winner though, don't miss them! Their soups are always good too.”

    Alanna T. ★★★★

  • “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!”

    Tad C. ★★★★★

  • “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.”

    Meta S. ★★★★★

  • “Had some quests from Columbus area and Andrian, MI and wanted to take them to a "local" restaurant. My grandson and I decided Izzy's in Forest Park was the choice. They LOVED it. First the delicious pickles and then the famous Ruben and potato pancake. The waitress was great, very friendly and we enjoyed her conversation with our questions. They were very impressed with the food and her. I wish I knew her name but she was the only waitress there. Then even bought a jar of pickles to take home.”

  • “Pickles!!  Potato Cakes!!  Pastrami!!  Paradise!! There is just NOT a better sandwich shop to be found!! ”

    Matthew B. ★★★★★

  • “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. ”

  • “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. ”
