Buckets Bar and Grill, Lusby, MD

How far would you drive for the best Reuben in the area? Lusby is in the far reaches of the DC metro area, down in Calvert County, MD. Buckets is under new ownership and is changing from a bar to a grill. The beef is house-made and then house-smoked(!). The flavor is remarkable, and the thick slabs of corned beef are as tender as you could want.

All of the elements are well balanced, and in all it’s quite a sandwich.
