There was one thing about Harrison's that you could always count on and that was great tasting roast beef. However, my last trip to Harrison's was a disappointment. I called in my order and arrived 15 minutes after the call but my order wasn't ready. Had to wait another 5 or so minutes. In the past I always was able... More

Very casual, only roast beef, pastrami or ham sandwiches in 3 sizes but the roast beef was great! Old fashioned crinkle cut fries and onion rings also very good. Share a medium -more than 1 person wants.

Harrison's never, ever seeems to lose its luster as the very best roast beef shop in the Merrimack Valley. From ordering to preparation, Harrison's is seamless. Crisp hello from the order taker who repeats your order to you and the sandwich crew to settling your transaction. Order placed and the crew collects the various components to deftly place it on...

So everyone around here knows that Kelly's is the big dog in the RB world.... Well this place beats it hands down. Great sandwiches prepared as asked. We got ours to go and sat on the deck with a couple of beers last nigh. Sweeeeet.

I recently moved to North Andover, and I've been here a number of times. The roast beef is typically a little overcooked and dry, I prefer it medium, pink, and juicy. The place is a bit dingy, but they seem to keep it clean. The staff likes to chit-chat behind the counter where they prepare the sandwiches. Of the 10... More

got my usual roast beef and fries. It was smaller than usual but good. Staff are really good and fast at getting your food. They used to pile it high not this time. My main peeve is the disgusting bathrooms. I refuse to use them. they don't lock and are dirty and don't have a mirror. I wait till I... More

Went to high school in Andover. It was a special treat to ride to Harrison's with a day student and hit them up for a large, sos, mayo, horseradish. At our 25th high school Reunion this past summer, Harrisons trip was required. My mouth waters. My eyes drool. It's been consistently great forever. Forget the environment and get a lahge,... More

The roast beef is consistently fabulous. The other food we've found to be average, but if you're ordering it than its your own fault if your meal is just average because you should be ordering roast beef! Fries are awesome too, always nice and crispy. Allergy friendly as well. We are hugely appreciative of being able to get a sandwich... More

If you ever need an excuse to go to North Andover then Harrison's is it! They have the best Roast Beef Sandwiches in the North Shore! Buns are toasted to perfection and the roast beef is perfectly sliced. You can eat in or take out and prices are reasonable!
