Ok, first of all the head of a pin was bigger than the portions served, the food was cold and did not taste fresh. They are over priced for the portions served. I did not enjoy it at all. Don't eat there.

If your looking for a mordern taste, then it's not the place for you. R n R is for someone that luv comfort food with a taste of southern cooking. Hot flavored gravy served with roast beef, chicken, pork, and separately. Home made hamburgers, hot dogs with fries and pickles. From fried onion rings, sweet bake potatoes, steam clams, onions...

I think this place has been around forever! We left Brooklyn 12 years ago and every once in a while, when we go back we stop at Roll N Roaster. You order your food, pay and receive a receipt and they will call your number when your food is ready. It's definitely on the "fast food" spectrum but who doesn't... More

Great place for friends and or family. Plenty of options to select from. Awesome roast beef and cheese sandwiches. We also love the corn fritters. Kids love their chicken fingers and I am a huge fan of their orangeade. My wife prefers the lemonade.

I had been reading about this place for years. Everyone talked about the great vintage vibe and how good the food was. I was so eager to go I could barely contain myself. I finally got there and ordered the roast beef sandwich, sweet potato fries and lemonade. The Kaiser roll was stale and the roast beef was just bland.... More

A part of life here in Brooklyn. Always yummy and fresh. We love their fresh lemonade and iced tea. It would be great if they offered one free refill on the drinks because there is a lot of ice. If it's your first time here. Have the roast beef with cheez. Cheez fries and corn fritters.

If you like roast beef sandwiches you'll love Roll-N-Roaster. The number one item on the menu is the roast beef sandwich which is why you come to this place. It is served on a roll and is doused in roast beef au jus. There are other items on the menu but have the roast beef. You won't regret it.

Where do I even begin? I've been going to this restaurant for over 30 years, and have never once been disappointed. The roast beef and cheeseburgers are the best, hands down. They are served on freshly baked rolls.The round french fries with melted cheese are also an excellent option. The prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is family-friendly. On... More

They are not too fast... SOOOOOOOO delicious! The roast beef, the kaiser bun, the mozz sticks the french fries with cheese. Everything is amazing! Whenever I return to Brooklyn, this is one of my first stops and always will be. They put Brennan & Carr, (the other notable roast beef place, in this part of Brooklyn), to shame! The fact... More
