Roll-n-Roaster (Brooklyn, NY)
Emmons & Norstrand Ave, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY, T: 718-769-6000
Roll-n-Roaster has been a staple of Sheephead's Bay for over forty years now. It is particularly famous for its roast beef sandwiches and its cheese fries. We got two Roll-n-Roaster Beef Sandwiches ($4.45 each), one with cheese (+$0.45), an order of fries ($1.75), and two lemonades ($2.50 each). The roast beef was very tender and juicy, topped with au jus, on a large and fresh kaiser roll: very tasty! The fries are wrinkled coins, crispy and tasty, but a bit dry. The lemonade was excellent: not too sweet, not too bitter, with an extra lemon in the cup.
Roll-n-Roaster is clearly more than a fast food place at a popular location. It serves top roast beef sandwiches and very good lemonade.
