Best sandwich ever

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

This place is original and it's delicious. It is not at all fancy but wow those sandwiches are great as well as the fries and burgers etc. old school NYC. Awesome place.

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

I did not find it funny that my bf wanted us to travel all the way from time square to this place for burgers. I moaned all the way to the restaurant. But by the time I tried the double dipped sandwiches and some cheese sticks, I knew it was worth the journey. No regrets at the end

Made the trip down to Brennan and Carr's on a recent trip to NYC after seeing it on Man vs Food. Not the easiest place to get to (40 minute ish Metro journey from Manhattan then a 15 minute walk along Avenue U) but it was definitely worth it! Had the Gargiulo burger - a succulent patty topped with cheese... More

Been going here since the 1970's and it never gets old. Don't expect five star service or linen napkins. You won't get it, but it's the best damn roast beef sandwich....ever.
