The ambiance is that this place has not changed in 30 years...I even think the waitresses are the same! But why should they change..you can get one of the best sandwiches you have ever eaten for six dollars or less. My wife and I split a heated Italian sub and it is plenty for both of us. We used to...

I have been going to the New Yorker forever...and I love it. Great variety of subs and don't forget the cheese cake. Its so good. You can't go wrong checking this place out. I highly recommend it.. You don't stay in business as long as they have, if you are producing quality food with a unique taste.!!

Great food, great service, great value. This restaurant is an icon in Roanoke. Everytime we visit relatives in the Star City is included a trip to the New Yorker. I finally decided to not order their fantastic Submarine and went for the Kosher Klub. What a super sandwich. Heated on rye, pastrami, corned beef, salami, Swiss, piled high, with a... More

My husband and I always split "The Submarine" whenever we're at the New Yorker. It's piled high with all kinds of meats, cheeses and slaw. The price is super cheap and the taste is so much better than Subway. Wait staff is friendly too. This place has been here forever and their prices have barely changed. Just make sure you... More

We love this place. We have actually driven 2 hours just to come eat here. The house specialty is their sub. This is outstanding! They have a full menu and although I want to try something else, I keep getting the sub because it's so good. It had been several years since I had been there, and I was amazed... More

The New Yorker has been a local favorite for decades. Some friends were in town yesterday after being away for quite awhile. We went straight to the New Yorker, where we have shared great memories with them over the years. They were astounded that the prices are still so low, and that the quality is as excellent as they remembered.... More

We kept hearing about how good it was, so we were excited to check it out. We arrived to have lunch, finding the waitstaff looking sloppy, although their bunny ears were cute. we sat and looked at the menu. We started our order, and was disappointed immediately. I wanted to add bacon and pickles, which I was told I couldn't... More

Classic New York deli style subs, meats, etc! All sandwiches are unique and delicious! Cannot find this flavor in any other sub shop in town. A Roanoke tradition on an old school main drag of Williamson Road that will make you want to "cruise" by on your way in and out of town!!
