Today's Reuben came from Champps in St. Paul. I haven't been to Champps in years. I forgot how cool of a place it is. The Reuben at Champps is actually very good. It comes with a side of waffle fries, which were also very good (side note: if you're having a Reuben, you've got to have waffle fries). Positives: 1) the Reuben was served on Russian Rye bread, which was a first for me; 2) the beef was cut very thick; 3) there was plenty of dressing. Negatives: 1) the beef, while thick, was not very "corny." That is, there wasn't much of a corned beef flavor; 2) the sandwich could have used about twice the amount of sauerkraut - I barely noticed it. Final score: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.
Another Reuben that I've had and liked quite a bit was from Milty's in Lansing, Iowa. Milty's has a good amount of sauerkraut, and their beefy is corny. There's only one problem: the meat is sliced too thin, and I think it often times gets a little overcooked. Score for the Milty's Reuben: 3 out of 5 stars.
