    Let's talk about reuben sandwiches

    I like me a good reuben. I don't think I've had one in Iowa that's the gold standard, but the sandwich I got at the Scott Street Pub in Council Bluffs once was pretty decent. I've heard about something called the reuben pizza in Iowa, too, that I'd probably try if the opportunity presented itself.

    So where is the best reuben in Iowa?

    Discuss.

    Don't.....even....

    Just because you've got some aversion to breaded items on sammiches, don't try and start a competing thread. gawddammit, this is an ISU message board, we should be talking about tenderloins, not Reubens...

    There is no such thing as a good reuben. Sauerkraut is one the most awful things known to man.

    This.

    God never meant for man to ferment cabbage. It's an affront to all things holy and just.

    Love reubens. I tried the Arby's one when it came out and it was awful. The reuben pizza can be bought at blackmarket pizza in ames I believe.

    Black market pizza in Ames has a Ruben pizza. Love their pizza although never have tried the Ruben. They were on man vs food a year or two back.

    On the contrary, Janny....if God didn't want cabbage fermented, he wouldn't have put the necessary organisms right there together. You don't have to add anything to the cabbage to ferment it, the yeast/bacteria right in the head already will do it...just some salt to keep the nasties away...I'm going to have to head to the basement to make sure my home made stuff isn't offended by your mean words.

    Those that don't like fermented cabbage are just uncultured.

    Speaking of Reubens, I just had one at Culvers. Talk about average.

    Don't know that I have had one in IA but the Philadelphia Tavern in old town Manassas VA is pretty good.

    Re: Let's talk about reuben sandwiches

    I love a good Reuben, but they are so hit and miss, I hate to order them. I don't know if I've ever had a good one in DM.
