Simple.  Prices haven't gone up appreciably in a long time.  To compensate, they serve you less food.  Look at portion sizes in packaging at the market, same thing there on pre-packaged garbage.

Good luck guido, a regular roast beef has been the size of a junior for about eight years, and a junior is about worthless.

Smaller portions for the same price have been happening since I can remember.  The earliest I recall at the moment is when a nickel candy bar (Hersheys, Snickers, Milky Way, etc) stayed a nickel but lost about 1/4 of their size.  Then a 1 pound can of coffee only contained 13 oz.  And so on.

You can't. 

Big Al's at 15th and Harvard used to be very good, but been so long, I don't know how they are now.  There is a Bill and Ruth's at about 53rd and Mingo that is better than the average B & R, but not really great. 

If you find one, let me know. 

The only other decent place I know of is at one of our offices, but you won't want to travel that far - near OKC.  The lady that does the sandwiches is an artist and they are always 'overstuffed'.  For $2.75.  Gotta love it!

Eff it. Going to buy deli from Seigis and make my own. I got hot peppers and special mustard from Philippe's in LA (home of the French Dip sandwich--get some on-line right now), and I can make my own Italian bread. Who's hungry?

Hmmmm....special mustard!  Spicy, I hope!  With a little horseradish!!

Stole my thought.  Ken does have the closest thing to a real NY deli here in Tulsa.

For those not in the know, Boston Deli is at 61st & Sheridan in the center off the NW corner.
