We were exhausted after a long flight from Seattle and the hotel recommended this place. The beef was delicious - so tender. We slept well that night after a great meal.

Came highly-recommended by some locals. Tried a Super Roast Beef and a Super Pastrami, both "3-way" which means with barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, and cheese. A couple of the best sandwiches, ever, although I would have rather not have had the onion rolls they come with. The meat and sauces are nicely spiced already, and for my money a plain bakery...

So a couple of us stopped here after having some drinks at a local establishment in Salem. This place is open until 2am and it has a drive through (which is crucial). As a matter of fact it's one of the few roast beef shops I've seen to have a drive through besides Kelly's Roast Beef. Order was amazingly fast.... More

Huge portions! Get their signature sauce, tangy slightly spicy and just wonderful. Conveniently located where Bridge neck curves near the bridge. Where to stop if you are heading into Beverley from Salem and looking for a great roast beef sandwich.

Needed a quick meal and decided to pick up roast beef sandwiches. Their beef is very tender, lean and rare and they put plenty of beef in their sandwiches. We also enjoyed their fries and milkshakes. The location is great too .. if you have the time, and the weather is nice they have a picnic table overlooking the water.

If you don't have time to go inside a restaurant to sit down and be served, this is a good alternative to the usual burger joint. We used the drive thru and ordered some items that needed to be cooked. By the time we got around to the pick-up window our order was ready. Server was courteous, and the food... More

I used to eat at Bill & Bob's in the 70's as a kid. That sandwich could not be beat. Now in my upper 40's and back in town for visit, stopped in. Hallelujah! The sandwiches remain Super!
