“Tommy's Sandwich w/Potato Pancake. Yummers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Its so much fun to visit Cincinnati and head downtown to Izzy's on 6th and main.
They've moved the counter around and updated the signage, but the food is still awesome.
And the servers were very friendly - even helped with directions back to the interstate.
I have to admit I always order the same item on the menu - the Tommy - since 1993.
And the next time I visit - I'll order it again!

“A Local Legend”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

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.
