Consistently good, their roast beef sandwiches will always satisfy. You can have it several different ways too. And cheese is available on everything!

I have been going here for over thirty years and when in New York still stop and visit. My favorite is the turkey with cheese. Another must is the french fries with cheese. Roast Beef and Burgers are good too.The help behind the counter usually has a lot to be desired.

When I visit family in Brooklyn this is where we go for a quick dinner with kids. The food and decor are the same as it was years ago. We usually order chicken fingers and french fries for the kids and I usually have a roast beef with onion rings and cheese. The kids enjoy it except for the fries... More

The hamburger was awful. It had zero juice/ fat / taste cooked out of it. The only Taste came from the ketchup and mustard. No tomatoes. No lettuce. No pickles. No mayonnaise. The fries were good. I would not eat there again.

You walk up to the counter and some friendly person is ready to take your order. Stand back from the counter and read the great menu carefully! It really doesn't matter what you do order, everything I've tried so far has been wonderful! Personal size pizza was perfect for my grandson and I, the fries with cheese sauce are a... More

Really good sandwiches, pizza & burgers. I had the sirloin sandwich - awesome. Everyone in our family had great things to say about their meal, I just forgot what they each had - but it was all good & a free pizza to take back to hotel for later !

Food was good but difficult to decide what to order because the menu isn't very descriptive. The roll was delicious and the roast beef was freshly cut, moist and yummy.

We stop here after going to see the lights in Dyker. It is an annual tradition. The roast beef and cheese is always the best, and they are large sandwiches. If we would not eat at L&B beforehand, I could probably demolish two sandwiches. Service staff can be terse, but hey it's Brooklyn. Plenty of seating and parking. Lemonade is... More
