“Not as great as I hoped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

I've been here for breakfast, which was ok. I stopped the other night at the drive thru for two coney's.

Service was nice and fast, coneys were icky and cold and full of onions. I like onions, and you can't really have a coney without them, but it was loaded with big chunks of onion. The hot dogs have no snap to them when you bite them. I've had a lot better and for a lower price.

“Poor value”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

National's is a restaurant for only when you are without anywhere to eat! The several times I have eaten here, the value and food have been extremely poor. The service is almost non-existent, and the servers act as if they are doing you a favor by waiting on your table. The food is dreadful, small portions, and with little variety. In addition the restrooms vary, from okay to poor. If you complain, you are treated indifferently.

“A Roseville Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

National Coney island has been around as long as I can remember in the same location with their distinctive sign. They are a landmark as well as an institution and you will often find classic cars there when the shows are on. This restaurant is always clean, serves good food at reasonable prices, and has plenty of booths so seating has always been available. The staff have always been quick and courteous. I eat here when I come home and it reminds me that I am home.

“No more smiles?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

The service is bad. Not so much on the speed, but the friendliness is just not there. They seem really unhappy to work there. The food is always awesome. Hate the drunks and wannabe gangsters that come in on weekend nights. Just order a carryout during those time.
