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

It's hard to describe this place in words. Have been coming here since I was a teenager (I am now 42) and it's always such a treat. The food is amazing. The cheeseburgers with their soft rolls and gooey cheese, the fries in their round serrated discs, the onion rings crisp, the iced tea delicious...worth every second of the wait.... More

If you are a fan of really good, flavorful roast beef, skip this joint. The roast beef is really bland and flavorless (take a piece without bread and give it a taste...ugh!). Even Arby's is better. I tried to bring this thing to life with some sauce...but it was hopeless. I suppose if you're accustom to under-seasoned, no character, bland... More

Have been going here since my kids were babies, now they're grown and we all still go here. Roll-n-roaster pleases every palate of every age with barely a dent in your wallet. Spacious, comfortable, food fresh and made exactly as you order. Just GO!!!

Before my son and I went to see Star Wars, we bumped into this place. It is a special place in several ways. It is spacious and clean. The menu is interest. You can find beers for adults and simple food for kids. My son was not hungry, so I ordered a sweat potato fries for $2.9. It was tasty... More
