Adam tries the Salami Combo

Remember when you were a kid and you would snack on a dollop of cream cheese rolled up in a slice of salami (or a dozen of them)? Izzy’s Salami Combo has the grown-up version of that classic snack and it is delicious. Thick slices of all-beef salami, topped with cream cheese, tomato, and red onion (I left the onion off of mine). The best part might be the spread of pesto that is smeared on the toasted sourdough roll. I’ll put pesto on anything, and it takes this sandwich to another level.

Adam Turer takes on the Turkey Reuben

Corned beef isn’t for everyone. While I don’t understand that, I respect it. You might not even like pastrami. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious Izzy’s Reuben. Not sure I’ve met someone who doesn’t like a turkey sandwich. So why not turn that boring turkey sandwich into a Reubenesque treat?  Top it with Izzy’s sweet & sour slaw, melted swiss cheese, and Izzy’s special sauce. Put it all between two slices of Izzy’s rye roll, which has overtaken pretzel bread as my favorite sandwich holder. Wash it down with a Dr. Brown’s root beer and have yourself a great lunch.

Adam Turer checks out the Chicken Salad!

Keep it simple. That’s what Izzy’s does with its chicken salad. Big chunks of delicious all-white chicken are topped with lettuce and tomato. What sets this simple creation apart is the lightly toasted sourdough roll. The crunch from the roll is an excellent complement to the tender chicken. I want to take this sandwich on a picnic.

Roast Beef Wrap

My lovely wife doesn’t have quite the same appetite that I have. When we go to Izzy’s, she prefers the wraps. The best part is, she doesn’t have to compromise any of the great Izzy’s flavors. We recently split a roast beef wrap. Each Izzy’s wrap has its own special toppings that make it unique. The roast beef comes with diced onions, tomatoes, melted American cheese and a parmesan peppercorn ranch dressing. You can always choose your own side; our favorite is the potato salad. The wrap is an excellent lighter option on a hot summer (or spring) day.

Adam Turer reviews the Spicy Delight

If you know me well, you know how I feel about onions. Just seeing the word on the menu is usually a deal-breaker for me. But, I committed to review every item on the Izzy’s menu and it was finally time to try something with onion on it. I am so glad I did. The Spicy Delight now stands in my top three Izzy’s sandwiches. The rye roll with pastrami and melted swiss is near perfection, and the addition of a blend of minced olives and sweet peppers tops it off nicely. Despite my hypersensitivity to onions, I found it to complement the other flavors, rather than overwhelm. This was a major step in getting over my strong dislike of an ingredient and I look forward to my next Spicy Delight.
