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

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

    Delicious roast beef hoagies. Wait can be a bit long but worth it for the huge sandwiches. Very tasty with cheese and onions.

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

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

    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

    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 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!
