I agree there are a lot of tourists and celebrities at Mr. Beef. Luckily, that hasn’t caused the food to change. I’ve been going there since about 1980 and the beef is as good as ever. Also, the atmosphere is pretty much the same. They haven’t prettied the place up a bit. I do like the addition of the "formal dining room," which they built in the late 80’s or early 90’s, and tend to eat in there so I can talk with friends, rather than at the counter. But if I’m alone, I still stand at the counter.
One complaint – the price has gone up and the sandwich doesn’t leave me full. I sometimes feel like ordering another after finishing the first. Anyone else find this to be true, or am I just a glutton?
