You can spend as much as $22.95 on a corned-beef or pastrami sandwich here. This will get you "Lester's Triple Decker Combo" -- more than a pound of meat on rye bread with a slice of Swiss cheese. The menu recommends this be shared, and many diners will struggle to finish even half of a regular-size sandwich.
I'm back in St. Louis this week, scoping out the deli sandwiches, barbecue and flat-screen TVs at Lester's Sports Bar & Grill. Check back here tomorrow (I think) -- or wait till the hard copy hits the street (tomorrow, I think) -- to see my take.
