Roast beef is roasted in an oven, london broil is cooked by broiling it with high heat. Different cooking methods basically.

Also different shape. London broil (usually top round) is a flat cut of meat about 2 inches thick. Roast beef is larger and rounder. Can also be top round, but sometimes eye round or rump, if it's a good piece. Bottom round is usually too tough and has to be made as a pot roast.

most roast beef from a deli is top round some eye round....

London broil.....is more a cooking method than a particular muscle...

ive seen many stores cook a chuck clod muscle for roast beef cooked rare and this is very good.- sliced at the deli
London broils are sold from this same chuck muscle in the northeast.....tho top round steaks are also sold as London broils if cut thick..

if I were going to cook a muscle for rare roast beef sliced on a slicer it would be top butt sirloin (yes rib eyes would be great but too pricey)
