Corned beef hunt

Unread postby mswerb » Thu Feb 26, 2009 2:37 pm

For some reason, as of late I have been on a good corned beef sandwich hunt. Obviously Slyman's is the best out there so don't bring it up.
I just hit CJ's Cafe in Willoughby up last week and was impressed. They are open 24 hours on weekends.
Mick's Pub, also in Willoughby, is right up there as well.
Anyone have a favorite spot for a good corned beef sandwich?

My dad swears by Ruben's in Elyria...though that's pretty far out. Won't go anywhere but there and Slyman's.

Chicago Deli on Euclid Ave. across from the clinic. When my mother was in the CC we lived off that place. The corned beef sandwich is bad ass, but dont forget to get some of their cheesecake or carrot cake. They order it from some place in the city that provides them for a few resturants in town. They are unreal.

Anyone know of any in Akron/Canton worth getting?

I love Ruben's, perhaps the greatest sandwich man has ever invented.

the reuben is my sandwich of choice. When we go out I almost always go for the reuben.

Mom's Deli in North Royalton has a real good one. Not too greasy either.
Molly McGhee's in Strongsville has a good one. Greasier.

I have had many a corned beef sandwich in my days. Corky and Lenny's, Slyman's, Joe's, Goodmans's and the list goes on and on.

The best in the City....hand's down. Danny's Deli on the corner of St. Clair and E.17th. You may get stabbed trying to get there, but it is worth the danger!

It's pretty difficult to argue with Slyman's. However, I believe a very close second is at the Superior Restuarant at E30th and Superior. Their corned beef rivals Slyman's and the sandwiches are enormous.......
