I had a taste for a good deli sandwich at lunchtime today (June 27, 2016) and headed for Rascals because I think they are the best in town. To my horror, the door was locked and a sign on the door said the owner had retired! This must be really "new news" because we stood there for about 5 minutes... More

Had the famous Reuben. Very good. The owner is super friendly and sweet. Potato latki was a bit greasy. Fries and potato salad were good. Please needs a little face lift (reads more like a diner) but nice experience

Rascal's in Blue Ash has the best corn beef in Cincinnati. My cousin has been telling me for years to go to Rascal's, I had a chance to go there the other day. I have been looking for good corn beef in Cincinnati for many years. I really enjoyed the corn beef. I do plan to return soon!

We had sauerkraut balls, a reuben, and the white fish reuben. All of the food was great. Definitely not for the health conscious, but great for dietary cheat day.

I love this place. I first tasted Rascal's at the Taste of Blue Ash a couple of years ago and have been going ever since. The owner is very personable and the food is excellent. I prefer the Ruben Rolls which are like Egg Rolls except there is awesome corned beef inside. It comes with a delicious dipping sauce.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. We ordered two sandwiches and shared them between the two of us. We had the Rueben with the potato latke which was really good. We also had the avocado melt which was bland. We ordered that sandwich with turkey and had to pay over $3 for a small amount of turkey which... More

I live on the west coast now and can't get great deli sandwiches. Every time I am in Cincinnati I go to Rascal's and have one of their pastrami Ruben. Excellent place with great service.

Finally, decent corned Beef in Cincinnati. After living here for almost 15 years, I can finally say that I had a corned beef sandwich that almost rivals one from Cleveland. This was so much better than the highly rated Izzy's. My husband had a Ruben triple decker on potato latkes and loved that too. Service was fast and friendly.

Sadly this place has gone to heck in a hand basket. Used to be good. Last 3 times the soup was so salty I could not eat it. Quality of the meat has gone down. The owner, is so rude now I cannot be around him. The food and service used to be great. Now it is terrible. Very sad.

LOVE this little deli.It offers lots of traditional Jewish favorites and the service is always friendly and fast and the portions are huge. They have several "special" sandwiches based on Cinci style favorites that are worth it. But my favorite is always the Rueben and of course Latkes.
