Carnegie Deli was founded in 1937 and has attracted visitors from all over the world. Even notable celebrities have visited here. They have a few locations in other parts of the States as well. They are best known for their huge sandwiches! I came here since I heard the reuben is something I must try.
At 5pm, there was quite a long line up already, so I opted to just do take-out and eat it back at the hotel.
If you do take out, just walk to the left counter and put down your order. Once you grab your order, you can pay at the counter on the right.
Ah, There`s the Reuben Sandwich ($24.95) was so expensive!! I actually didn’t expect it to be over $20, but it did hurt my wallet. There are layers and layers of pastrami underneath, then topped with sauerkraut and swiss cheese.
It also comes with a container of their mustard and Russian dressing. I love the mustard so much since it complimented the dish so well.
I thought the taste was quite average and nothing too amazing. For $24.95, I expected it to be much larger that what was presented to me. I think I would have had a better time eating a sandwich from Carnegie instead.
Overall, you can definitely get better food for the price of this reuben. I wasn’t too impressed.
