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.'
