Amazing Sandwiches

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.

They offer different selections than the usual sandwich shop. Great combinations and you can't go wrong

I had read previous reviews and happily found the restaurant - very easy to miss though! The crispy brussel sprouts were fantastic as was the Southwestern Chicken sandwich. Very friendly and great atmosphere - definitely worth the search to find this gem!

In a very easy to miss location, this is worth looking for. The sandwiches are fresh and fabulous. I had a half salad, half sandwich-beet salad and roast beef grilled cheese that was incredible. The seasoned fries are yummy. Be prepared to wait on line and wait for a table, but it is well worth. it. Don't even think about... More

We were very tired, hungry and cranky. We stopped here because it was near where we had to be. We had no big expectations because it was small and in a strip mall. Surprise! The salad bowls were great and satisfying. The brussels sprouts were wonderful, and the shrimp perfect. We might even make a special trip to go again.

ROAST has a short, simple menu packed with eclectic choces and tons of flavor. This is the answer to "what do you wsnt for dinner" many nights in our house! I've tasted so many of the items on the menu it is difficult to pick a favorite. Just be adveturous... pick a basic that you like and go with all... More

Excellent Sandwiches. Have the 1/2 sandwich and soup or salad option just like Panera Bread, but the sandwiches are a 1000 times better! Great place to eat in or take out.
