Been here twice and that's enough...each time ordered a sandwich and it had enough garlic to kill a horse! Seriously Makes me wonder why someone would use that much....by the way, I love Garlic! Parking is atrocious!

I was on a business trip to the area last week and as usual searched for local eatery's. Roast came up on Trip Advisor with great reviews so I couldn't resist. I grew up in North Jersey but currently live in Georgia, where you cannot get any good sandwiches. My eyes were immediately focused on the Corned Beef Reuben sandwhich... More

Looking for a non-chain lunch we discovered Roast House. It was challenging to locate via GPS due to significant road construction, but I'm really glad we found it. The food is obviously homemade, my husband enjoyed the unique clam chowder (though it wasn't served hot enough). I had a seasonal lobster roll with Asian influence, sprouts, sweet chili sauce, mango--and... More

I often go here on my lunch break, even though the traffic can be brutal enough to take 30 minutes to get there. Premium ingredients, excellent sides and friendly service. Great menu.

The food is great. I've been there a handful of times and have never been disappointed. The roast pork sandwich and the brisket sandwich were excellent. I've never heard a bad word about the food, other than it can get a bit pricey for lunch. You pay for the quality, I guess. The place is waaay too small for the... More

Seriously awesome find through yelp. We've driven by here a zillion times and would never have noticed it. And from the outside it's totally not what you'd expect when you see the inside (modern, clean and fresh). For this area? To have over a 100 yelp reviews? that's phenomenal. *BBQ roast pork sandwich: Grilled Pineapple, Charred Red Onions, Cheddar, and... More

My husband & I stopped for lunch on a Saturday since during the week it can be too difficult to find a parking spot here. It's a small place, tucked into the back corner of a shopping mall. I didn't expect much, but was immediately impressed by the menu. The salad/wrap/sandwich/panini choices were more interesting than typical deli. It was... More

I would definitely order from Roast every day if I could. The mix of fresh ingredients, in new and exciting ways, elevates the humble sandwich to culinary masterpieces. And not only sandwiches, but salads too. I recently had a potato salad with potatoes, asparagus and lobster that was so delicious and fresh, that I wouldn't even share it (despite multiple... More

My friend recommended going here and warned me that it was very small and very crowded. Fortunately it is a school holiday so the teenagers were not having lunch there today. I had an amazing pistachio crusted chicken salad with loads of blueberries , strawberries and pistachios, delicious greens and a light cocoanut dressing. I loved it! My friend had... More
