Reuben Sandwiches

Finding the best Reubens in New Hampshire

Reuben from The Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth.

Crazy delicious, Reuben sandwiches have been known to cause people to set forth on lengthy pilgrimages. In New York's Jewish-style delis, where the tall Reubens are constructed with building cranes, they are made with properly tangy sauerkraut, a corned beef center, Swiss cheese and Russian or Thousand Island dressing on grilled rye bread. Here in New Hampshire we can count on the following establishments to cure our yearnings for a great Reuben. Get out the napkins.'



Lou's Restaurant
30 S. Main St.

Grilled Reuben

On locally made grilled La Panciata rye bread, this sky-high Reuben sports homemade sauerkraut, lean corned beef, Russian dressing and warm, gooey Swiss cheese.

Tip: A favorite with Dartmouth students, be prepared to stand in line. Worth the wait.


Nature's Green Grocer
374 Union St., in the Union Mill Peterborough

Hot Pressed Turkey Reuben

Just when you think you can't get a better Reuben! This luscious version puts a spin on the traditional, substituting oven-roasted turkey for the corned beef. With Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing on Orchard Hill's Kalamata rosemary bread, you simply can't go wrong.

Tip: Try their terrific homemade soups, order 1/2 a Reuben and soup combo. Everything is either organic or local.


The Roundabout Diner
580 Rte. 1 Bypass (on the traffic circle)

Roundabout Corned Beef Reuben

Roundabout's Reuben is stacked with housemade, thick-cut juicy corned beef, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and sauerkraut on buttered, grilled marbled rye.

Tip: If you have the room left, try the awesome banana cream pie. Then roll out the door.


Sunny Day Diner
Rte. 3, Lincoln


A quintessential classic American diner in the White Mountain, Sunny Day builds their Reuben on grilled homemade pumpernickel rye swirl bread with corned beef, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing and Swiss cheese. They are known for their corned beef hash, so you can just imagine how good their Reuben is.

Tip: Only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 7 a.m.–2 p.m., cash only.


Timoleon's Restaurant
25 Main St.


This well-loved family restaurant's Reuben arrives on homemade rye bread, with loads of corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and a generous portion of Swiss.

Tip: Bring quarters for the parking meter. Good value.


Jerome's Deli and Catering
393 Bridge St.


Grilled on pumpernickel bread, with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing.
