A Sandwich a Day: Tex-Mex Reuben at Mr. G's in Plano, TX

It's not really a Reuben. In fact, even calling it a Tex-Mex Reuben is a little misleading: there's no pastrami or corned beef and it contains no sauerkraut.

Clearly, we had to try this beast for ourselves. More

Once I finished my sandwich, the waitress came over and asked if I'd like another. I declined, but in hindsight, I probably should have gone for another round. More
