Good Reuben in NoVA?

Any recommendations on a great Reuben sammy in Northern Virginia - preferably in one of these areas: Ashburn, Sterling, Reston, or Herndon? I'll even travel to Fair Lakes. I don't want something with super greasy (and soggy) bread or fatty meat, which is what I've gotten lately.

  1. I had a good pastrami sandwich at Chutzpah Deli in the Fair Lakes area. I haven't specifically had the Reuben (I'm assuming the pastrami one you want?) but my friend swears by their Reuben. But, I have to say I like the meat slightly fatty. Not enough that it's too chewy but don't like it lean.

    1. I've always enjoyed the Reubens here. http://www.irishusa.com/4ps/

      It's in the heart of Falls Church but easy to get to via 66 and free parking.

      1. Chutzpah's Reuben is the best I've ever had. I know some people on this board don't like Chutzpah, but I can't understand it. I've never had a bad meal there, and over time, I've gotten to know the staff, so I always feel warmly greeted and welcome. They also have a Tyson's branch, which is the one I usually go to.

            It's a little bit hidden, in an office building that is just off of Route 7/Leesburg Pike, between McDonald's and Jared Jewelers.

            The exact address is 8100 Boone Boulevard, Vienna. Here's a map:

        1. I think Jimmy's Reuben is pretty good. I've had it but it's been quite awhile (can't get away from the Beef on Weck or the Cheesesteaks.

          Otherwise I third Chutzpah.

              At some point, regardless of what you think of the reuben, make sure you get a fish fry some Friday evening.

          1. Another vote for Chutzpah. While I find their meats sometimes too lean on their own, their Reuben is a great sandwich.
