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 first started going to Izzys over 40 years ago. I remember Izzy working behind the counter across the street from WLWT. The food I had tonight was as good as when Izzy would hand me my sandwich in the 70s! ”

  • “I love Izzys!!! I go to the one on Mall Road in Florence. The staff are super friendly and the food is delicious!! We love the kids eat free Saturdays as well. The only thing I dont like is that the broccoli cheese soup was taken off the menu. ”

  • “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.”

    Tamilyn E. ★★★★★

  • “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.”
