    The roast-beef sandwiches come This Way (on a roll with au jus and Cheez Whiz, $5.50), That Way (with gravy and mozzarella, $8.50), or Something Else (Cheez Whiz, fries and mozzarella, $12.50). Read more

    Perfect drunk food. Go for the Popeye for melty, roast beefy goodness w/ just enough spinach to trick yourself into thinking it's healthy. Opt for the bisque fries instead of the cheez fries.

    This place is pretty great. You're not going to beat $4.50 for the Roast Beef sammy and the Pastrami @ $7 is a legit option to Katz's $16 tourist trap. If you go pastrami, hold the cole slaw.

    Oh. My. Deliciousness. Get anything with roast beef in it. And the fries are to die for. Delivery might take a while though- its a pretty popular takeout place.

    The pastrami is a must have- The meat is way-smoky and gloriously fatty and a lovely shade of deep red. Untraditionally, coleslaw is put in the sandwich, along with the expected grainy mustard.

    The Roast Beef Sandwich is the most popular in the city. The Pastrami Sandwich is the 4th most popular (behind the usual suspects: Katz's Deli, Carnegie Deli and 2nd Ave Deli).

    Try the “This Way” ($5.50). Slowly roasted beef is sliced paper thin and served on a sesame studded roll, a hearty au jus is ladled on, and lashings of cheese whiz are then applied. Read more

    Try the gloriously sloppy That Way, creamy Lioni Latticini mozzarella & juicy gravy made from thickened pan drippings crown this roast beef sandwich. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011. Read more

    Try the 'This Way' sandwich ($5.50), "Slowly roasted beef round is sliced paper thin and served on a sesame studded roll, a hearty au jus is ladled on, and lashings of cheese whiz are then applied." Read more

    Even though the Popeye costs more - it's worth it. You get a lot more meat and the spinach/garlic/provolone are AWESOME. You must give it a try once.

    This spot serves 2 iterations of their dope slow-cooked roast beef sando: the jus & Cheez Wiz "This Way", and the onions/gravy/fresh mozz "That Way". Read more

    The pastrami's great, but the "Something Else" (roast beef w mozz, gravy, au jus, and steak fries all piled in together) is the way to go.

    Brave the line for the dirigible-size This Way—a roast-beef classic made with mounds of succulent prime rib drenched in oceans of Cheez Whiz. Featured in Where to Eat 2011! Read more

    Their seasoned thick cut fries remind me of the kind you get on the boardwalk at the beach. I mean this in the best possible way.

    The OTHERTHING pastrami is one of the best in NYC. And the amazing fries are a meal in itself but well worth the effort!

    Ask for your "This Way" with the au jus on the side to prevent the sandwich turning into a soggy mess. Dip, then drink the leftovers.

    Sandwiches are smaller, no broccoli rabe anymore, AND is it me or did they move the counter to the right side?!?!? Seems the place is shrinking :(

    The hand-cut fries are amazing, they have this like fried chicken fry on them, the This Way was da bomb!

    "That other thing" is by far the best sandwich; slow cooked pastrami w/ coleslaw that legit melts in ur mouth!

    9.4 rating for a cheap ass bland roast beef sandwich topped cheese whiz. Proof the foursquare rating system is complete bullshit.

    Want something light? Create your own tuna on rye with provolone, tomato, lettuce, and mustard! Yummies!!

    Try 1 of 2 menu items: “This Way” with aus jus and cheez whiz or “That Way” with gravy and fresh mozzarella. Or Both!

    Its all about the "Other Thing" Pastrami sandwich...however they raised the price from $7 to $9.50!

    Sandwiches are amazing but watch out for the hot sauce. It will steal the show from your sandwich.

    This Way Roast Beef is sinfully good. Probably why you feel like a terrible person after eating it.
    Andrew Choi · February 6, 2014

    $3 for beer in a can and a roast beef slider is a great deal. Get it with whiz.

    "This Way" or "That Way" you really can't go wrong with the roast beef. Better yet grab a friend and go both ways.
    Sean Ganann · January 30, 2010
  • Tony M.

    Sad to see this place go down hill. I think they recently shut down because of sanitary issues.

    The Pastrami here is better than Katz's, with none of the obscure incantations needed.

    The fries are incredible. They appear to be "double dipped." Whatever they do, it works.

    Free slider with a beer is a nice deal. Solid beef sándwich.

    The That Way is tasty and delicious. The hero's a bit too big, so go for the roll.
