    Please tell me it’s not turkey-based “corned beef”…..

    • holly says:

      not according to the website…CORNED BEEF Fully cooked sliced corned beef contains up to 20% solution: water, dextrose, salt, sugar, sodium phosphates, garlic powder, sodium ascorbate, sodium nitrite, and flavoring.

      come on kids, learn some research skills!

    Iwwent to Subway for lunch yesterday, and the container of sauerkraut looked like plain mayo to me.

  3. Mike R says:

    If they use the same quality of meat on this as they do on the big hot pastrami, I’ll pass.

  4. sandy says:

    If they have rye bread I would go for this.

  5. Jimbo says:

    Lol @ Sandy, they say Rye bread in the article.

  6. M-Logan says:

    Sandy, yes they have a new Rye for this. I picked up a footlong Reuben tonight on the way home, and I gotta say I WAS IMPRESSED. I’m kind of a Reuben snob, and there are several local sitdown restaurants around here that have stellar Reubens. My #1 concern is always the corned beef quality, and that it is LEAN and tender. This was! And the rye “loaf” was good as well. Good thousand island, too. Will absolutely get more of these, and hope they keep them around. Over 9 bucks for just the sandwich, kind of pricey but it’s filling. For the same or less I can get a full meal at Firehouse (with chips and drink).

    I tried the new rye bread the other day, and it is actually pretty good.

  8. rodney says:

    Tried it yesterday, not bad, but I didn’t care for their rye bread, if I got it again, I would just get it on their wheat bread. But if you’re going to get a reuben, you really can’t go wrong with Schlotzky’s.

    • Joe Cool says:

      Here we go again…not everyone has these other pretentious sandwich places in their area.

      • rodney says:

        Please don’t lump me in with those folks, I liked the Subway reuben ok, except for the rye bread they used. I thought Schlotzky’s were pretty ubiquitous though, maybe not. I just mentioned them because they have an amazing rye bun, so for a chain, they’re a good choice for a reuben if they’re in your area.

      • holly says:

        pretentious? really?

      *gives Rodney a dirty look*

      • rodney says:

        LOL, I hear you, but man, I just didn’t care for the rye bread they were using. Maybe I’m too particular, I don’t like Arby’s rye bread either, the only chain reuben I’ve had that gets the rye bread right to me is Schlotzky’s.

  9. MP says:

    Sounds great, closer to an “authentic” Reuben than most delis I’ve been to….

    I’m not really a big Subway fan at all but my wife likes me to go get her a meatball at least once a week so I tried this last week and wow was I surprised! I told Subway on their Facebook page they should make this a permanent addition to the menu.

    BTW – Ask for extra sauerkraut if you’re a kraut fan as, by default, they don’t put much on, I suppose because most people in the public aren’t real big on the kraut on Reubens.

  11. Joe Cool says:

    Question for those that actually have had this sandwich…can you just order the reuben as in the picture, or do they still make you go down the line and say exactly what you want or don’t want?

    • Lochlain says:

      I answered “like a normal reuben” to the cheese question after specifying rye bread. The sandwich artiste was confused. I’m sure that all depends on who’s working.

  12. M-Logan says:

    I just simply told them I wanted a footlong reuben, and they knew what that meant. They asked if I was OK with the kraut and the thousand island, I guess better safe than sorry – may as well verify. My only change was extra cheese, white American IN ADDITION to the swiss. Man was it good – think I will have it for lunch Monday!

  13. JJJ says:

    All I know is if I see somebody putting “everything” on this, there’s going to be a fight at Subway.

    • M-Logan says:

      Yesterday I knew we were going to my favorite Italian place for dinner, so I wanted to eat light at lunch…. for the first time in recent memory, I got a 6″ instead of a footlong. Reuben. Both cheeses again, toasted. But they were almost pressuring me to add other veggies, which sounded sick and wrong but I went for black olives. Not bad!

  14. JP says:

    Had it yesterday, it wasn’t inedible but it certainly wasn’t good. I love reubens and was pretty hesitant to try it. The meat was bland, kraut wasn’t sour, and the sauce tasted more like ketchup than 1000 island. The bread was actually the highlight.
