Roll n' Roaster

Neighborhood: Sheepshead Bay

At Roll n' Roaster they've been making "simply delicious" food for over 40 years. The menu focuses on roast beef sandwiches, but extends to fried shrimp and a pizza. What makes it cool? In a time when "throw back" to "old" New York often requires navigating hipster pretense, Roll n' Roaster is nothing more than it purports to be. And, being situated in the neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay, is deep in traditional New York City values. -Nick Schonberger
