Stopped in Brooklyn

A great place for a double dipped roast beef sandwich. You can't go wrong!! Parking is tight in area, but worth the stop

Great atmosphere with a super home sweet home feel. Great menu from the beef broth, to the onion rings, to the signature Roast Beef!

This place is fantastic. I can't describe the feeling when you are eating one of their Gargiulo Burgers soaked in beef broth. All you can do is dive on in and keep pouring on the broth as you go. As real Brooklyn experiences go, this has to be right up there!

The menu here at Brennan and Carr is basic. The food is good and the prices are very reasonable. If you're in the area you should definitely give them a try, they've been a neighborhood fixture in this neighborhood for many years….They're doing something right.

The food is very good. It's simply amazing and simply simple. The prices are a bit steep for the amount of food, which I'm assuming is due to their appearance on food network shows, but you could definitely say they focus on quality rather than quantity. As for the atmosphere, it's not exactly a place to hang out for a... More

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 with fried onions (dipped... 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
