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

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
