Iconic Eatery

This iconic Sheepshead Bay eatery is a cross between a fast food place and a sit down joint from the 50's. They have great fresh roast beef sandwiches, round crinkle cut fries, shakes, burgers and a whole lot more. It's all very good and you should experience it. It actually is the model struggling... read more

The best cheeseburgers and cheese fries on the planet! I crave this place and sometimes make the drive from Manhattan just to satisfy my need for a great burger. People rave about the roast beef sandwich and that's what they are known for but I don't like roast beef so I get the cheeseburger. I recently got the fish sandwich... More

I left my cell phone home on my counter today and was cut off from the world all day so I stopped here on my way home from work tonight. At 8 pm. To grab some sandwiches for my family. I stepped up to the counter and politely asked if I could use their phone to call home. To see... More

When you're in Sheepshead Bay, you must try this long time classic restaurant! It's fast food yes, but a cut way above the rest! I love roast beef rare with cheese, and cheese fries here. So good. Truthfully it is much better some times than others when it comes to the roast beef, but it certainly melts in your mouth... More

An old stand by. A worthy opponent of Brennan and Carr. We tend to alternate between the two for roast beef. What RNR has over BAC is the variety of menu items. Love the shrimp cup and clam strips. Also, don't forget the free pizza with purchase of over $35! Better than some take out pizza in the area. Love... More

Roll-n-Roaster is one of those places that I end up ordering more food than we can eat because I know it all tastes so good that I cannot decide what to order. The roast beef is always something that I order, The Cheezburger is always good, Mozzarella Sticks and Fries-n-cheez are always a hit with the kids.

I stopped in one afternoon to grab some lunch. I had heard about this place from some friends and was finally in the area. So I decided to give it a try. I wasn't starving so I didn't load up on items form the menu. But after tasting their roast beef sandwich I wish maybe I had. First off, this... More

This was the closest restaurant to my hotel so I visited there several times during my stay. The roast beef sandwiches and side orders are delicious. Service is quick and friendly. My only complaint is that they don't deliver. There were menus at the hotel stating free delivery, but when you call their number it is constantly busy (they must... More
