Old West Saloon Food

Quick questions:

* What sorts of chow would be served in an Old West saloon, circa 1870? Assume that the place cooks grub of a somewhat palatable nature - as well as some really foul stuff - and has several live-in staffers who would depend on that food.

* How much would really good meal cost, in 1870s dollars? How about really BAD food? What would be a sample gourmet meal of that time and place? (I can imagine quite a few rotten ones...)

* Does anyone know what Old West prostitutes charged for various services?


I think I've seen the elephant, now. :)
