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

I have been going to Roll 'n Roaster for over 40 years and it's consistently delicious. I know people rave about the roast beef sandwiches but I personally don't like roast beef. I get the yummy cheeseburger and cheese fries every time. I say that I will try other things on the menu every time but I always order the... More

For a fast food restaurant they deserve the 5 stars. I could not find one fault with this place. We came to eat here before having a full day at Luna Park in Coney Island. It is only about a 10 minute drive away from Coney Island so not so far a detour. We both enjoyed the roast beef. One... More

I make it a point to stop off here if I am passing within any reasonble distance from this place. The roast beef is delicious, real and freshly made. A roast beef sandwich fits right in with my lunchtime calorie limits

My husband and I have eaten at this place a few times and we are totally satisfied every time. The food is delicious, the lemonade is the best I've ever tasted and the atmosphere is retro, but homey. The Western burger is one of my favorites.

Sheepshead Bay would not be the same withoutthis bastion of Brooklyn Roast Beef. The smart efficient service is typical of the "Brooklyn State of Mind." As a native, I can appreciate an icon that still functions unlike Gage and Tollner or Lundy Brothers or Cookies!

I ate here many years ago and loved the Roast Beef. While driving back to NJ from Long Island, my husband and I decided to stop, and I'm glad we did. I've only ever eaten the Roast Beef and French Fries, so that's all I can comment on. They are both great. They have a decent variety of sandwiches and... More

Great Local Place. Roast beef sandwiches with extra gravy. Also try bar pie size pizzas that are free with purchase over certain amount.
