Best sandwich place on Long Island

I have recommended this place to so many ppl and our opinion is all the same... This is the best place to eat a sandwich which you can taste that it was made with premium ingredients and awesome seasonings.

The roast beef in this place is to die for, just sometimes the people working the counter are a little "out to lunch" - no pun intended!

Best lunch I've had in a long time! You have to try it! It's expensive as sandwiches go but it tasted so good. The staff was friendly and fast.

I used to work in the area and would visit often. They have a nice selection of 'gourmet' style sandwiches and panini's . The dining room is tiny so be prepared to eat standing up during lunchtime.

I was not sure what all the fuss was about and how a sandwich shop could get such high marks. It deserves it. My sandwich was excellent and the side of sweet chili crispy brussel sprouts was amazing. Not very big store. Kinda hard to find, but worth it.

Roast is the best sandwich house around. They make all their own meats and breads. I really love trying their seasonal specials.

Meatball parm is very unique. I want to try other sandwiches but can not miss this when I go. Very filling and quite delicious

I came right at closing time. They could easily have said that they're closed. Instead, the waiter, Paul, invited me in. The service was very friendly and efficient. The prices are very reasonable, and not least, the sandwich I had was great. A place to come back to.
