How can we order lunch?

My company (75 people) orders lunch from the same place every day. The receptionist sends out an email to everyone in the morning, and people respond with what they want for lunch. She then takes all of these food requests and calls them in to the sandwich shop. At the end of the day, she then has to tally up how much everyone spent. It then comes off of your paycheck.
How can we make this easier? It takes a considerable amount of the receptionists time!

The other difficulty is that there are specials every day that are faxed to us.
One idea would be to have some sort of web-based cart system where people order their lunch. A report could be generated from this every day that would just be faxed to the sandwich shop.
Anyone ever come up with a solution for a problem like this? It seems like it might be pretty common.
