The Skinny: The original Junior’s opened in 1950 in Brooklyn and was known for its cheesecake.
We tried the cheesecake but found it to have a slightly off-flavor, like it had been in the refrigerator too long. Far better were the pickles and beets served up as appetizers.
But it was with its full-portion, larger-than-life sandwiches that Junior’s scored points with two friends and me.
My Turkey Reuben was loaded with fresh-roasted white meat turkey. It was topped with Junior’s creamy slaw, which was dressed with a slightly sweet, slightly tangy sauce. My friends also enjoyed the pastrami on their Reubens.
