corn fritters are awesome so is the CHEEZ on everything!! But make sure your food is fully cooked because our burgers and chicken were raw. My friend and I went to tell the cashier and he said they cook it medium. The burgers were bleeding and the manger on duty heard our conversation so they cooked it more. it was... More

If you've read my reviews before you may have noticed my attention to detail. If the locale is worth writing about (by my standards), its worth reading (should you seriously be looking for new places to visit). If your a New Yorker living here since The early 80s (or longer), who could forget their commercial jingle. If you don't remember,... More

I used to go to Roll-n-roaster with my brothers when I was a teenager ager. Recently after a sad occasion we decided to stop by the Restaurant for a bite. This time my grown-up nieces were with us. We had the usual roast beef sandwich with malted cheese and the fries with melted cheese. It brought back memories. A staple... More

This is a great Brooklyn icon that has cheap but good food. Their cheesey fries are delicious and their burgers are classic. They also have Roast Beef and other good menu choices. If you stop by on your birthday you get to spin the wheel. It is a simple restaurant, along the lines of fast food. You can buy a... More

Over $30 for 3 sandwiches, 2 fries with cheese, and 2 drinks. They got 1 of the sandwiches wrong. When I asked them to correct it they still got it wrong. The second time I asked them to correct it, they said they are not making medium roast beef sandwiches right now. I then said I would wait and spoke... More

This place is a landmark. I've been eating this sandwich since I had teeth. Everyone should try this place at least once in their life to make up there own mind. The roast beef is always tasty and guaranteed fresh. Can you find better.....probably. but I bet if you go once you'll go back again. A little pricey but what... More

Roll-n-Roaster has been a popular spot on Emmons Avenue across from the Sheepshead Bay waterfront for decades; unfortunately we have found it has gone seriously downhill in recent years. We visited often, and enjoyed many meals there. On a number of recent visits they have run out of menu items. One day, chowder, one of their staples; another day coleslaw,... More

I remember hearing about roll n roaster during grade school but my family never ventured to this part of brooklyn as well as many others simply due to racisim at that time. So as an adult I was able to eventually come to this spot on my own and try it out. For the most part its just fast food... More

I've been going to RNR since I was a little girl and its never changed. Everyone I know that grew up in Brooklyn loves this place. The food is great (burgers, CHEEEEZ fries, mozzy stix, shakes, etc) and its open really late on weekends for after partying snacks. 2 thumbs up in my book.

It boggles my mind the great reviews of this place, either they have lost their taste buds or their standards have sunk so low that this is their idea of cuisine. I live across the street and wouldn't waste my money, I try it once a year, just to see if it's improved, and it hasn't, when someone else buys... More
