As a sandwich purveyor, I would like to know how a place in Pittsburgh can get over fifteen bucks for a sandwich.

If this is possible, I think I could double my revenue by selling this sandwich. Poorlittlefish, can you maybe help me on this one?

Maybe it's their super-duper-deluxe Pilly Cheesesteak w/ imported poutine combo.

Because it's the best sandwich in the 'burgh, Greekguy, that's why! :p Just kidding... actually, I was just at Primanti Bros. last night and I can assure you that the sandwiches cost between $5 and $7, depending on what you get. All sandwiches come with french fries and slaw on it. I got the turkey & cheese. It's a great sandwich... even better after a late night out drinking. But they are very messy, though.

Ha Ha, you know about that cheesesteak! I can't believe there is a restaurant in Philly selling a $100 cheesesteak. It has truffle butter and fois gras (spelling??) on it. Yuck! I don't eat meat, but if I did, I don't think I'd eat that!

Anyone spending a hundred bucks on a sandwich is feeding their ego, not feeding their stomach.

It's things like $100 sandwiches that make me wonder what the fuck life is all about when people on the other side of the world know only too well the REAL value of a meal.

Fucking sickening.

Do we know Gary means 15 dollars? I always thought it was 15 cents and a dime.. ie 25 cents! Dirt cheap!

So can some-one clear that up with Gary and ask him that at the next show. Make a nice change in conversation from "so when are you splitting up":rolleyes:

I thought the same thing too. I guess in my mind I could never fathom a $15 sandwich, so I didn't think of it as a possibility.

Fair enough. I could change my comment to , "As a sandwich purveyor, how can you possibly make money selling a sandwich for a quarter?" We need to find this great business mind, somewhere in PA.

FYI, that $14+ sandwich I had was at KFAN, The Restaurant right when they opened. They took it off the menu, as I was apparently the only one who got suckered into paying for it.

Just reading the list of ingredients make me want to throw up. :(

The most I've ever paid for a sandwhich was $8 for a buffalo burger. It was good. :p

You can get a hambuger in NYC for $50- maybe a $100 at one of those David Bouley type places. Comes with truffles and who knows whatelse. Personally, the only truffles I Like are the chocoalte kind.
