Well worth the trip

After a friend recommended Brennan & Car we decided to take a day trip out to Coney Island. It would of course be rude not to make the small detour along Avenue U on the way back. Seated quickly, served politely and the food arrived within 10 minutes. Beef broth (heaven in a cup), beef sandwich... read more

I used to think this was the best place for roast beef sandwiches, I really did. I ate there numerous times throughout my life. Then, about 9 years ago, I was there with my daughter, who was 10 years old. We ordered 2 roast beef sandwiches and two fries. My daughter looked at me and said, "Mom, did you eat... More

This isn't A fancy nor expensive restaurant but the food is great. The selection is tiny but if you like roast beef this place is a must. I always get the same thing a roast beef sandwich dipped with onion rings its more than enough for me. By the way dipped means they dip the whole sandwich in their special... More

This is worth the trip into Brooklyn as it is the best Roast Beef Sandwich you will ever eat. Every time I come to NY I have to come to Brennan and Carr. Great sandwiches, great hot dogs, great everything. Oh and great service by a happy staff

Every time I go to Brooklyn, I make sure that I stop at Brennan and Carr's for a hot roast beef sandwich.....and I'm not a fan of roast beef! It is the only place on earth that I eat it.....because it is that good!!

Dad has never been to this place so we went there for lunch. I have taken my kids here several times to show some of the places I ate when I lived in Brooklyn. The roast beef dipped in their au jus gravy is great. Rumor has it that the gravy is the continuation from 1938. Side of fries, coke,... More

Having travelled to New York from London this place was one of my priorities. It was a bit of a trip from Manhattan but my god it was worth it! This was hands down the best burger (Gargiulo) I have ever had and probably one of the best overall meals. I salute everyone involved in running this restaurant, food's top,... More

I came in here late one night after driving up from the south. It wasn't too far off the belt; especially after the miles I put in. I wanted to come in here for a while. I thought the place was very comfortable and inviting. I ordered the Roast Beef Sandwich just straight up with a tap Budweiser. I was... More
