Reuben Tour of Columbus – Mark Kelley’s (Dublin)

I’ve lived in Dublin, Ohio for over six years, yet somehow had not made it to Mary Kelley’s Restaurant and Pub, which is not only famous for their variety of Irish dishes, but most notably for their dessert selection, specifically their massive slices of pie. But this isn’t a pie tour, it’s a reuben tour, so I’ll get to the review.

Here’s the scorecard:

Corned Beef – good cut, decent amount, not overwhelming
Sauerkraut – proper amount
Swiss Cheese – melted but not overflowing
Thousand Island – light, didn’t taste much of it, could have used more
Rye Bread – instead of traditional rye, two massive slices of Rubschlager pumpernickle

Mary Kelley’s scores a 4.5 out of 5. I would have preferred a little bit more thousand island for the added flavor, but this is a damn fine sandwich, and it’s huge to boot.
