The food was fresh. It's been there a very long time. The lines can get long but it goes pretty quick.

I have been to this place well over 100 times for the past 20+ years, so I figured that I should finally review it...lol. What can I say...this place is amazing! I really can't find anything to complain about here. Sometimes the wait is a bit long, but the food is made fresh and all is forgotten once you bite... More

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.
