Figured that this place must be great, given that it's been at this location for so many years. We wandered in for a Saturday lunch and I still am wondering how it's managed to stay in business for so long. I guess maybe my expectations for a great roast beef sandwich might have been a bit high, but when you... More

Most roast beef places call themselves "famous" in their store name. Harrison's doesn't need to because it's the best roast beef out there. Line it up against anyone like Kelly's, Chick's, or a sub shop. Nothing else compares to Harrison's as it's simply THE BEST! Cooked to perfection and always consistent. You don't go in there some days and get... More

I love to go out and enjoy good times with good friends. Harrisons is one of my favorite places, and I must say that I cannot remember a time that i have been disappointed. I only have beef a few times a week, and when I want a real treat, Harrisons always comes to mind. My friends and I get... More

While the place is not overly great the food makes up for the fast food like atmosphere. Nobody beats their beef on an onion roll with Sauce, cheese and mayo, simply awesome always.

I have had the best Roast beef of any place I have tried here. It is pink like I like it. I always ask for it RAP which is rare as possible. It is tender, piled high and on a nice bun. I recommend this place as the best roast beef you will ever try.

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.
