Reuben in Edmonton
Where can one go for a good reuben sandwich in Edmonton? Thanks in advance.
We love the peameal bacon sandwich at Col. Mustards (on 124th Street). It has lots of sauerkraut, so that's why it jumps to mind. Come to think of it, I think they do a version of a Reuben, called the Rachel, that is excellent too. I couldn't find a website, but your best bet is to get this sandwich at lunch; I don't know if they do sandwiches at dinner.
Here's the address. It's always busy, so go early if you go at lunch.
10802 124 Street NW
Edmonton, AB T5M 0H3, Canada
Ah, Bob mentioned Wolfies and I am smiling at the fond memories of that place. No place in town did a Rueben like them. Since they closed I have been looking for a decent replacement and have found that Urban Diner on High Street make a wonderful Rueben. I'm not a huge Urban Diner fan, but will go there for their Rueben and great fries.
I have seen the Rueben at Urban Diner (the person with me ordered it) and was not overly impressed with its appearance. It certainly did not have the magnificent height that a Wolfies' Rueben always provided. Another minor point relative to Urban Diner (and most other Rueben imitators) is that a true Rueben sandwich should not leave one with any room for 'fries'.
On Friday I stopped in at Col Mustard's for a sandwich and...they have a reuben on the menu!! A REAL one. So I ordered it to see if it is worthy of recommending on this board, and it was very good. I got it to go, which may not have been the wisest decision since it is toasted and got a touch soggy, but it was still good. Loads of kraut, meat, mustard...I would recommend it. And incidently, my friend got the Cobb sandwich and was raving about it for the rest of the day.
