Awesome server! Beef and barley soup was great even by itself. Ruben and potato cakes were nice going with it. Also enjoyed the carrot cake. Recommended to anyone passing through the Cincinnati area!
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.
Longtime fans “love” this landmark Cincinnati deli with locations throughout the city serving “hearty”, “overstuffed” sandwiches (particularly the “terrific” Reuben) along with “famous” pickles and “second-to-none” potato pancakes; although the decor reminds some of a grade-school lunchroom, it’s affordable and the staff is “a hoot.”
