Great roast beef sandwich

Growing up having Bill & Bob's and Kelly's, Harrison's is right up there. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Rolls are tender and service is fast. This restaurant had been a staple in North Andover for many years, this is why.

Good roast beef sandwich but sloppy service and tired and dingy surroundings. Counter and kitchen staff squabbling. Sauce heavily applied to half of the sandwich while the other half was bare.

can't go wrong here if you want a great roast beef sandwich! The wait staff is a bit gruff, but it's not a concern once you get your sandwich and fries .... awesome!

I love the food at this place... Order 5 sandwiches every time we go. Super Beef with Sauce and Cheese, Large Fries, and a drink. YUMMY !!! The place can use a little updating, the tables are always sticky, the chairs are a little uncomfortable, the carpet needs to be replaced... Don't let any of this keep you away as... More

I've been hitting this place since they were Riley's in South Lawrence back in the 1970s/1980's, and it's the same sandwich. I think it's great that over the past few years, they've made the move to credit cards, but it's just great comfort chow. The roast beef is great, but the hidden gem on the menu is their chicken cutlet,... More

I dont know the the New England's fascination with hot roast beef sandwiches, but this place brings them to tears of joy. My step daughter would devour their largest sami like a Raptor on a cow. If you come, bring a squeegee and a bucket of hot water, the dam things are messy. Oh, I did love their curly fries!

Like another guy said, nothing special and it's been there 20 years now. Building is very plain, service indifferent, just some guys. Roast beef OK tho it should be better for $7.80 for a large. Fries just OK. They have a pretty good sandwich/burger menu so maybe there's something better. Burger King is a mile away on 133 at 114.... More

If you like roast beef, french fries, onion rings, etc, you can't go wrongs at Harrison's. You go there for the roast beef ;not for the ambiance. It has a loyal following and has been around for at least thirty years. Here is a true story. My 16year old son studied in Spain for nine months. We picked him up... More

While on our way to a Hockey game we decided to try Harrison's- When we arrived and I informed the counter person that this was our first time he didn't offer any tips- My sister's family ordered 1st- they enjoyed their food, but would have ordered a larger portion if the staff would have given them a recommendation.- My husband...
