“A Local Legend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Izzy's is one of Cincy's local legends, alongside Skyline (Cincinnati Chili), Graeter's (Ice Cream), Montgomery Inn (Ribs) and so many others. Izzy's is a deli where the specialty sandwich is a Reuben that comes with a delicious potato pancake and their signature pickles. This location is convenient to Great American Ballpark (The Reds).

“Good Deli with fast service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

This is a Cincinnati staple. The potato pancakes are worth the trip alone. Good fast service, hot food. A great place for lunch. They have several throughout the city to choose for.

“Great Reuben”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Reuben was definitely fantastic! Good meat, cheese, and dressing. The bread was very fresh too. I was looking forward to the potato pancake but it was average at best. Excellent and fast service.

“The best potato pancake of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The potato pancakes are almost like a funnel cake - only better! I've enjoyed their all beef hot dogs on a pretzel bun on several occasions - decadent and tasty. Very nice service as well.
