We live locally and the boys in our family eat at Harrison's regularly. The order line is a less intense version of Seinfeld's soup nazi experience, but one that must be learned quickly if you want to feel like a regular. The large roast beef, served on an onion roll, is excellent -- tender, melt-in-your-mouth, lean and filling. I don't... More

Have been driving by this place for over 10 years...finally my Fiancee' took me. I must admit, the first thing I felt when I came thru the doors of Harrison's Roast Beef was "OMG Testosterone City". What do I mean by that?? Well, bare bone establishment. Tables were as simple as could be, no valances/curtains, tables weren't even wiped down.... More

Third time here since moving to town. Food was ok after my order got messed up. The replacement sandwich was tiny compared to the one that was made in error. Confusion seemed to be between cashier and cook over whether orders could be shared verbally or if they had to be written on slips.

This place has been around for decades and serves up a great (one of the best around) roast beef sandwich. I agree with another reviewer, pass on the sides, i.e. fries, pizza roll, cole slaw - etc. They are average or even less than that. I always opt for take-out as the interior of Harrison's hasn't been updated since the... More

I have loved these roast beef sandwiches forever!! I used to go there all the time and then I left for the military. Every change I get to go home and stop into Harrisons, I do... I absolutely LOVE these sandwiches! I wish I could get the recipe to make on my own. Add cheese and sauce on the side...... More

Harrison’s is a guy’s place. For as long as I’ve been going to Harrison’s it has been manned by muscle heads that get off on screaming and yelling orders back and forth to each other. They also don’t hesitate to yell at customers if you are not ready to order. Think of the soup nazi from Seinfeld, only in real... More

We travel back to Massachusetts every summer to visit family and Harrison's is one of the first stops I make. The rest of the year, I often find myself craving for one of their roast beef sandwiches. A large, heavy on the sauce with onions is just amazing. I have never found a roast beef sandwich as good as this.
