Bengal King Joe Burrow

Introducing ‘The Bengal King’ aka ‘The Joe Burrow’

We are excited to honor Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow with his own sandwich, The Bengal King.

The sandwich is an overstuffed reuben served on grilled marble rye with a potato pancake and pickles for $11.99. Izzy’s famous corned beef, fresh sauerkraut, 1000 island dressing and melted imported Swiss cheese are combined and served on ‘striped’ marble rye and comes with Izzy’s famous potato pancake 

“Joe finished his collegiate career as a Bayou Bengal and is ready to start his professional career as a Cincinnati Bengal,” says our President, John Geisen. “Izzy’s and the City of Cincinnati are excited to welcome Joe and what better way to do so than by having one of Cincinnati’s longest standing restaurants giving him his own sandwich.”

Izzy’s on The Simpsons

The Simpsons have an Izzy’s — a restaurant and deli in the fictional town of Springfield’s Lower East Side. They have several sandwiches named after celebrities, including one named after Krusty the Clown.

This is based on the real Izzy’s Deli in Cincinnati, Ohio, famous for the complimentary pickles Bart references. You can see Izzy Kadetz (the real owner) behind the counter, and his wife Rose is the waitress. They were famous for arguing with each other and being snarky with customers as mentioned by Rose when she responds to Bart sarcastically, “Watch how fast I go” as she mosies away from their table. Their menu is emblazoned with the actual old-style logo from the restaurant.
