Ruebens in Tucson
Trying to get a respectable Rueben
in this town is like trying to squeeze horseradish from a stone. Weasel at Bob Dobbs makes a decent
it's not on their menu and he has to be in a really good mood in order
to chef one up for you. Periodically it is the special of the day
and then you're safe but it's not something you can count on. And
for God's sake don't tell him we told you to ask for
one. He's cantankerous enough as it is,
Olive R Twist has an ok sandwich on their menu, which also features our
personal favorite, the turkey Rueben. The bread is good and tastes
homemade but the meat on either sandwich is far from high quality
and tastes like lunch meat from a bag.
Jason's Deli gives it a shot but the result is unsatisfying.
The Depot has a decent sandwich
although the kitchen can be incredibly slow and the staff has a hard
time getting a warm meal out to all members of a party at the same
time. They do, however offer both pastrami and corned beef, the
choice of five different kinds of fries, and have a decent beer
selection, not to mention the 8 big screen TV's and personal speaker
system for viewing multiple sporting events.
Famous Sams version is so greasy
you can't function after consuming one.
Your best bet is to go to the butcher shop Dreher's on Speedway and
have them make you one. The Dreher's offering in either pastrami or
turkey is excellent and you get to consume it in an old fashion
butcher shop featuring all the sights and smells inherent. They have
fresh shaved horseradish on request, numerous salads, slaws, sides,
and deserts not to mention the best meats in town. Dreher's is top
notch anyway you slice it.
- Unfortunately Dreher's seems to have gone out of business and
Weasel works at the Frog and Firkin now. We haven't checked to see
if they have a Rueben but will let you know eventually.
