Mouth Watering Roast Beef

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... read 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.

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

Great place for the family to get a roast beef and cheese, fries, chicken wings, burgers and more. Fresh lemonade and cold beer also available. Conveniently located off the bely parkway, across from the water. Parking lot and street parking available. Don't mind the line, it will move quickly. Never a bad meal, worth the trip.

I live in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. One of the best areas bar none for delicious dining. I recently re-discovered Roll-N-Roaster Restaurant, a place I would frequent as a teenager. The food here is still amazing. They have hundreds of items to choose from. I ordered the Roast Beef Sandwich on a soft roll, fries and to die for lemonade.... 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
