A Sheepshead Bay institution, Roll-N-Roaster has been serving roast beef sandwiches on delicious, freshly-baked rolls for 40 years. These are serious sandwiches, the beef available rare, medium, or well-done, as you request. A side order of cheese fries is essential.
What should I order at Roll-N-Roaster?
A Sheepshead Bay institution, Roll-N-Roaster has been serving roast beef sandwiches on delicious, freshly-baked rolls for 40 years. The beef can be had rare, medium, or well-done, if you specify. You can request roasted onions on your sandwich, which are delicious. Add some extra beef gravy and you have yourself a slice of heaven.
Although the sandwich is big, it seems to disappear in moments at every visit. The roll itself is nearly perfect. It is a vehicle for the beef, onions, gravy, and even cheese sauce if you want to go cheesy.
What to order as a side dish?
As a side dish we recommend to go with cheese fries. They’re definitely not fancy, but they’re a near perfect rendition of that comforting food. The not-too-thick potato discs have a crisp edge, and the cheese sauce is deliciously simple. On our next trip, we are going to try the corn fritters.
And to wash it all down
Roll-N-Roaster also makes their own lemonade, orangeade, iced tea, and fresh-squeezed OJ. I highly recommend the lemonade. It’s very refreshing on a hot summer day. I haven’t tried the other beverages. They make a pretty good apple pie, too. It probably doesn’t need ice cream but, hey, why not? I’ve also heard they make a very good thin crust pizza, but I have not tried it.
Take a walk in the neighborhood
Walking along Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, is a very pleasant way to spend some time on a nice day. The narrow body of water which separates Coney Island from mainland Brooklyn provides a nice breeze. picturesque sailboats bob up and down, ducks and swans can also be seen enjoying the calm water. Along the dock, various fishing charter boats wait to get ready to leave on fishing expeditions.
