When I was high schooler on Cape Cod, we had a place called Elsie's. She was a German lady from Cambridge Ma who ran a summer place in Falmouth. The highlight was a Roast Beef Special. It was about 1/3 lb+ of very thinly sliced Roast Beef (probably not the best grade, but tasty), served on a Kaiser Roll, topped off with a slice of Bermuda Onion and Russian Dressing. Accompanied with a glass of her great lemonade, it was heaven!

Back in the 60's menu choices were more limited and this was felt to be "exotic". Nowadays, there's lots of stuff to eat and various ethnic and different places, but I don't think I"ve ever seen something like this again. Anyone had something similar? and Where?
