    The roast beef sub with midnight gravy is as good as they say. Perfectly toasted bread, soft delicious meat and that gravy is heaven.

    Try the Hot Roast Beef Hero - With mutz and gravy. I was initially terrified of this black gravy and it doesn't look particularly appetizing, but it was incredibly good.

    Best roast beef hero. Best flavor, great quality and the gravy is a must. First time there and all I can say is that I will be back for more again.

    Try to know what you want before going on line to order. Waiting can be long pending how crowded it is. Worth the wait.

    Nothing in the borough is quite as challenging as the roast beef hero at John's – masses of warm, pink meat on a crusty hero, topped with melting slices of mozzarella and gobbed with a midnight gravy. Read more

    I might even skip L&B for a chance to eat the incredible roast beef sandwich again, loaded with mozzarella, gravy, and grilled onions.

    Everybody talks gravy this, roast beef that here. Try the MEATBALL PARM ON A ROLL, it is simply the best damn meatball sandwich.

    The best place to get a hero in Brooklyn. Due to that reputation the lines are insane at prime time.

    Best roast beef sandwich in the city! I must admit though the actual beef is nothing to go crazy for as I like my beef a little more on the red side. But the gravy, oh the gravy! Its orgasmic!
