Good food, quick service.

Good quick food with a large selection. Must have the corn fritters. Only issue I had was that my drink was filled to the top with ice prior to serving it. Server didn't want to refill ice tea, so I asked for water.

There is an extensive menu and you will have trouble deciding, go with the roast beef. It is perfectly pink and juicy. Fries are a hit. Actually, there is nothing bad on this menu. Go hungry.

The Roll-n-Roaster was very enjoyable. Not high dining by any means, but the food was good and if you spend more than $35 you get a free pizza. The clam chowder was excellent. As were the shakes. They have free parking.

I absolutely love this place. It's more of a fast food place than a restaurant. There is plenty of seating and plenty to choose from. Most known for their roast beef with cheese and gravy sandwiches, french fries and cheese, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and fresh lemonade. It is delicious, filling, and decently priced.

Great place for some quick food at a good price! The wings are phenomenal and the sandwiches are great! Very fast and inexpensive! Desserts look great too even though I was able to resist indulging in one!

This is our young family's go to place for cheap eats. The thin crust pizza is actually delicious !Orangeade is never enough- wish it was never-ending refills:) Sweet potato fries are delicious. The venue needs updating and a color revamp... but we don't come for the ambience. We come for the food.

I have been going to Roll-n-Roaster for years. It is basically a roast beef sandwich and non greasy fries ( potato or sweet potato). The price is reasonable for the food. The quality hasn't changed in all the time I have been there. It is a staple.

Staying at a hotel in the neighborhood, we stopped here for an easy dinner and thought it less than promised. My Manhattan-style clam chowder was decent but about half the portion I expected for $4, even in NY. My husband's "shrimp cup" and fried clam strips were seriously overdone and very puny; we suspect the "clams" were the dregs of... More

Just went for lunch today after a campus tour of Kingsborough Community College. It's never a disappointment. Had the roast beef & cheese fries. Yeah Yeah. I know it's not good for the health, but it was delicious!

It's not fancy and it doesn't pretend to be. It is a fast food burger joint with good burgers and fries. If you go on your birthday you can spin the wheel to win something. This place has other eats and is also known for its roast beef but I go for the burgers.
