Having been to the other Reuben further east, I couldn’t help myself but to compare the two namesakes. Though dimly lit, the decor and mural painted walls were quite charming. The service was a whole lot kinder than the other restaurant.
A burger that contains tomatoes, lettuce, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and bacon. From my seat, I had a decent view of the kitchen. After a little waiting, I noticed this tall green plant like thing protruding up into the air. That, my friends, was the lettuce.
This burger was one of the tastier endeavors of late. The taste was consistent through the entire meal. Though the bun started to give way near the end, things managed to stay secure. This burger left me with a great after-taste that lasted through the afternoon, which, for me, is always a positive.
The sides were ordinary at best. A pickle is a pickle. The fries were fast-food and a little too salty. The cole-slaw didn’t really stand out. But in all, the burger was really worth it.
