Besides the food, one of the greatest things about Rein's is the location. Just off of I84 in Vernon, Connecticut, you have to pass Rein's if you are traveling from most New England states south of New York.
On our latest journey to the Hudson River Valley in New York over the Thanksgiving holiday it just so happened (Okay, maybe I planned it that way) that we were driving past around lunch time. So I looked at my wife and said "where do you want to go for lunch?" Kind of an inside joke as we both knew that we were heading for Rein's.
The food is delicious! They have an extensive menu -- everything from breakfast all day to sandwiches, and comfort food such as mac 'n cheese. So if you find yourself traveling over the holidays be sure to include a break in Connecticut at Rein's.
A great deli wouldn't be complete without pickles:
Of course I get a large Rueben:
My wife selected their Rachel:
Got to have fries to go along with a sandwich:
