The best homegrown fast-food in New York City can be reached by driving to the bay making a right onto Emmons Avenue. There is absolutely no other place like this one. Our popular seaside neighborhood is home to many restaurants and fun activities, but Roll n Roaster takes the Apple Pie. A roast beef (and so much more) “not-so-fast fast food restaurant” that’s been feeding our community and its visitors for over 40 years. The restaurant tried its hand at a Staten Island location and another on Third Avenue in the East Village—both are now closed—but the heart and soul of the operation remains at the Emmons Avenue flagship, with its nostalgia inducing facade and decor.
