This Sheepshead Bay roast-beef icon was founded in 1970, and not much has changed since then. Balloons, banners, and a palette of mustard yellows and browns adorn the cozy interior. Locals snag booths to hunch over the enormous slow-roasted sandwiches—one of the city's finest specimens of the form. Other menu standard-bearers include the turkey sandwich, the hamburger and corn fritters. A sign by the register announces: "You can have cheez on anything you pleez."

I been here couple times to grab lunch and I guess it is so famous that it could be deemed as a mini landmark in sheepshead bay. This place has been here for 45 years years and the inside decor really does show that. It's a bit outdated but eh it's not a big deal. The place is full of cheesy lines such as you can have anything you pleez or cheez burgers. Yes they do have an obsession with anything ending in eez.

Their food is quite simple . nothing fancy so if you expect a 4 or 5 star meal go someplace else. I got a fish filet , ribeye steak roll, onion rings, lemonade and fries. They were pretty decent for it's value. I spent a little over 20 for it. 

The line itself is a little crazy. There is a wait to order your food and to receive your food. The best way is to grab a table while someone orders since tables do get filled easily.

On your birthday you get a spin on this wheel they have and you can win some money for your meal. I haven't tried it but will probably do when I remember to go on birthday.
