I LOVE these roast beef sandwiches. And I can only find them in St. Louis, so far. Slather some Barbeque Sauce on them, and I've found my own Culinary Nirvana.

I'd venture a request that she bring along some sandwiches and an orange freeze, but I think we'd just get some wrappers and an empty cup. And who could blame her?
Geez, now I'm hungry......
