The Beef Frank Deluxe Reuben by Adam Turer

Here’s a new way to enjoy a hot dog: Two dogs, butterflied and broiled, on rye toast. Topped with onions, swiss cheese, sauerkraut and spicy mustard. Add as many pickles as you want. It’s a ballpark classic in reuben form. The Beef Frank Deluxe Reuben goes great with a Dr. Brown’s Root Beer or a sweet tea.

This also marks the ninth and final reuben that I’ve tried. In my next post, I’ll rank my favorites.

The Tommy by Adam Turer

I loathe onions, but I trust Izzy’s menu. I took the leap and tried The Tommy just the way I was told to do by Izzy’s menu: “Don’t change a thing . . . great combo!” I survived, and I’ve got to admit—I enjoyed it. I’m still not a fan of the onion flavor, but I did like the crunch. Unlike some sandwich places, Izzy’s puts all of its sandwich toppings through the broiler with the meat. That quick run through the heat perfectly blends the melty swiss cheese, crunchy onion and fresh tomato with the delicious roast beef on The Tommy.  This was the first Izzy’s sandwich I’ve tried on plain white toast and I did miss the flavors found in the rye, pumpernickel, or pretzel bread. The Tommy was a good sandwich for a hot summer day, as it was not as filling as some of the other Izzy’s offerings. I substituted the potato pancake for a side of Izzy’s underrated coleslaw and a polished it off with a refreshing Dr. Brown’s Diet Cream Soda.
