We were here in July while visiting family & all we could think about this visit was to come back for their dipped roast beef sandwich. Try the KFJ (Knife & Fork Job) or just the double dip with au jus. Sooo yummy. Blueberry pie was excellent also.

We saw this place on Man V Food, so on our trip to New York we thought we should pay it a visit. Excellent Roast Beef and good service. Something a bit different from the usual tourist trap, alittle bit out of the way but worth the effort.

They sell roast beef sandwiches that they dip in a light gravy similar to au jus sauce...it does smell very good when you walk in , but the meat is just carved for the sandwiches, without cleaning it up at all...they are loaded with fat and gristle that I really do not enjoy... the french fries are ok...it is a...

Only 10-15 items on menu, pub stuff like burgers, fries, frankfurters, chicken fingers, wing dings- chicken sandwich was good, burgers were better and their signature roast beef sandwiches were excellent. Both Manhattan and New England clam chowders were good too. Service was great and VERY friendly, felt like we were long time customers....actually thanked us for coming in.....

This a place you need to visit when in Brooklyn. The roast beef sandwhich is always cooked and dipped to perfection. A large order of wing dings and and I'm all set. I also reccommend the gargulio burger (roast beef sandwhich with cheeseburger )

We ended up here not knowing the reputation of the restaurant. It was great. I liked the atmosphere and the old school jackets the waiters had on. The restaurant looks old and classic but smells clean and is clean. I had the roast beef with onions and cheese. It was very good and not too salty. Too many things now... More

Still as consistent as it was years ago from my childhood. Pricing is in line with inflation. A double dipped Gargiulo Burger with a cup of broth on the side as au jus for dunking is absolute heaven. And its not over salted which is very nice these days. Decor is as it was which to me is perfect. Wait... More

I am originally from Brooklyn, and have eaten here since I was a kid. Now I return to the neighborhood once per year. This place used to have a rotisserie going with the rib roasts inside. there was always a hot one on the slicer, and more ready behind it. They took the sliced beef, threw on the cheese, picked...
