The hamburger was awful. It had zero juice/ fat / taste cooked out of it. The only Taste came from the ketchup and mustard. No tomatoes. No lettuce. No pickles. No mayonnaise. The fries were good. I would not eat there again.

Really good sandwiches, pizza & burgers. I had the sirloin sandwich - awesome. Everyone in our family had great things to say about their meal, I just forgot what they each had - but it was all good & a free pizza to take back to hotel for later !

Food was good but difficult to decide what to order because the menu isn't very descriptive. The roll was delicious and the roast beef was freshly cut, moist and yummy.

We stop here after going to see the lights in Dyker. It is an annual tradition. The roast beef and cheese is always the best, and they are large sandwiches. If we would not eat at L&B beforehand, I could probably demolish two sandwiches. Service staff can be terse, but hey it's Brooklyn. Plenty of seating and parking. Lemonade is... More
