Not only is Brooklyn home to the world’s best pizza and bagels, it’s also home to two legendary institutions of roast beef. These prodigious restaurants happen to both be in Sheepshead Bay. I don’t even need to name them, but for the sake of the record, I’m talking about Roll-N-Roaster and Brennan & Carr.

Last night, Brennan & Carr called out Roll-N-Roaster on their Facebook page.

“There is a new show on the Travel Channel called Food Wars. Who thinks that Brennan & Carr would beat Roll’N’Roaster in a best roast beef in New York competition?” they wrote.

Woah! Them’s fightin’ words! So what do you think Sheepshead Bay? Who’s got the beef?

    r&r dips buns in broth also – just one side though, unless you ask for double dipped

  3. Brennan & Carr (I was told)used to get them from the bakery on Avenue U and E23 Street.

  4. Brennan & Carr’s roast beef sandwiches are far superior to Roll-N-Roaster … I like their burgers better too, although they might be a little greasier. Additionally, at Brennan & Carr, if you want cheese on something, you get CHEESE — not CHEEZ. Actual cheese, not cheez whiz crapola.

  5. Roll-N-Roaster is the best!! i dont care to much for Brennan & Carr i dont like how they cook the roastbeef and the buns are soggy!

  6. I eat both and love them both. But not only do I like the vibe better at Roll-N-Roaster, I dont think you can beat thier roast beef, cheese, and sauted onions. That said, Sheepsead Bay is lucky to have either, let alone both.

    I can't believe it. I never been to brennan & carr and I live a block away! Time to make some time!

  11. Hands down, there is nothing better than a Brennan & Carr Hot Beef with Cheese with the bread single dipped.

    Makes me wish I still lived in Brooklyn.

  12. Brennan and Carr has the best roast beef sandwich anywhere! Nuff said! Roll and Roaster cannot compete.

  13. I just told the RollnRoaster page that B&C called them an overpriced Mickey D's and asked them if they were gonna take that.

    I mean seriously… we need some Jamokes from Hayseed Iowayyy or Worse…. Chelsea or Soho… who think pizza is a Ritz cracker with friggin American cheese and Ketchup to come down here and tell us whats the best?!??!!?!

  14. Oh, I realize that we are talking roast beef. That was my point – only place I go for roast beef is Brennan and Carr.

  15. Definitely agree with Mike. Roll N Roaster has great cheez fries and cheez burgers. But when I want roast beef, it's Brennan and Carr all the way!
