A Must do When Visiting Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn

Casual, fast and delicious food, and yes, with healthy options. My carnivorous husband enjoyed the Roll n Roaster Beef sandwich, rare. What made this place extra special is that we could order the meat prepared rare, medium or well done and the gravy is on the roll. Plenty of non-meat and healthy... read more

When you go stick to the basics. Rare Roast Beef with Cheese, Fries with Chees and a lemonade. The perfect meal. I've been going here for 30 years now. Mix in some onion rings and/or some mozzarella sticks and I hope I live another 30 years so I can keep coming back for more.

Great place to go for roast beef sandwiches. The services is fast, the food excellent. Always a line when we go, but always a seat too. Love how you get free pizza when you spen over $35,but don't expect much. Pizza is plain thin crust and more of an appetizer. Great family place for all ages. Most likely expect to... More

Took my nieces and nephew to RNR and we had a blast. Yummy food, clean decor. Nothing fancy, mind you, but it was good. The burgers are sooooo yummy. I really enjoyed the fried shrimp that tasted fresh. I would definitely go back...soon!

The food has always been excellent. One year (long ago) our three daughters wanted to take a couple special friends and each have their summer birthdays here. Why? Because none of my girls like birthday cake and they love the deserts here. Also they give kids balloons. Wow! And as others have mentioned, if you go over $35 (we certainly... More

One of my favorite places. I love the French fries with cheese. Corn nuggets and there iced tea. This place is packed any time of the day and night. You order and get a number and pick up your food. There is plenty of seating. The food is always fresh there special is the roast beef and cheese . You... More

The not so fast food at roll n roaster is delicious and nostalgic for me all at the same time. I've been visiting this location since I was a kid living in NY and I stop by every time I'm back in town. At first glance you'd think really?! But then you since your teeth into a fresh roast beef... More

This is one of my favorite fast food restaurants in NY (definitely different than the normal fare offered in the City). The roast beef sandwich with extra gravy on their fresh baked roll is amazing! My family also enjoys the corn fritters, lemonade, orangeade, apple pie and milkshakes. Free thin crust pizza when you spend $35 - which can happen... More

I've heard about Roll-n-roaster for YEARS. Don't come here to order a healthy alternative. Seriously, turn around. It's too tempting and too good to pass up on the real stuff. I ordered a western burger and the cheese fries. It was great, exactly what I expected. Here's the only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars... As nice as... More
