The Liberty Reuben
Facebook user Tina Gangl, of Springboro, says, “If you like a meaty Reuben you can't beat Flyboy’s.” The Liberty Reuben at Flyboy’s Deli, 2515 Far Hills Ave., Oakwood, has corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing on marbled rye. It’s named after the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Engine developed in Dayton, said owner Steve Crandall. Photo: Hannah Poturalski
English cheese onion sandwich
Gangl also recommends Central Perc European Café “for a lighter, more sophisticated sandwich.” Owner Mike Morgan says the traditional English cheese onion sandwich is a big seller because you “can’t get it anywhere else.” It has mature white cheddar cheese, red onion, butter and Branston pickle on wheat, Italian or French bread.
