Don't be fooled by the look!!! – Chocolate croissants look soooo delicious, but they turned out to be the worst croissant I've ever eaten! Not to mention that it's also the most expensive croissant I've seen $6.95! DO NOT BUY!!!
Overpriced, but not as bad as everyone says – Roxy's isn't as bad as everyone says. Granted, it's overpriced, but it's in Times Square. Also, I wasn't crazy about the $3 sharing fee. But the wait staff was not rude like many of the other reviews say. Our waiter was actually very nice. We got the Corn Beef sandwhich and the Pastrami sandwhich. Both had good flavor. The cheese cake wasn't very good. We were from out of town so can't really compare anything else.... so we kind of liked it.
Great food nice family atmosphere – Great food! The best pancakes we've ever had! Wonderful service! The waiter was at our beck and call. This was a Very Nice dining experience!
BAD BAD BAD! – DO NOT EAT HERE! Food could not be worse if you tried! My husband's burger was sooooo dry. My chicken no flavor at all. Service was soooo slow. The worst meal I had in NYC!!! Oh and don't get me started on the price!
NEVER go there!!!!!!! – would NEVER recommend this "deli" to anyone. Myself and my 3 friends were having lunch even though we were not happy with the prices. $27 for a club sandwich and $12 for a hamburger. We actually saw a male employee assult a female customer because she brought a McDonald's bag in with her. Then when she and her pregnant sister left the employee procceded to flip her off in the deli when they were telling their group about what happened. Myself and my group plus another couple that was there to witness this incident cancelled our orders and left the place letting the employees know why we were leaving. The employees just shrugged their shoulders and pointed the way out. Worse place that I have ever visited in New York.
Gross, must survive on tourists – I went with a friend when we were walking around Times Square. First the hostess downstairs could barely speak English when my date asked if we could eat upstairs, and she didn't seem to want to let us go up, but finally we just went upstairs. There were about a dozen tables upstairs and only one or two were full, with at least 3 booths open, so when the waitress seated us at a tiny table, my date asked if we could have a booth, and the waitress said no! But while we were sitting, another party of two was seated at one of the booths! They were done quickly and were soon replaced by another party of two! (Those two people did not even stay to eat - a good choice - and were quickly replaced by another party of two.) First we each ordered soup, and since the soup of the day was split pea, which I like, I tried it, but it was awful. Ben's Deli has pea soup on Tuesdays and it's SO much better. Then the waiter never even bothered to ask if we wanted anything else (we wanted to share a sandwich), so we had to flag him down to order. The cornbeef was very fatty and unappetizing. I didn't see the check, but I sure hope that they didn't charge us the $3 sharing fee for the sandwich, since we did each order a bowl of soup first. Just stay far away from this gross, rude place and go to Ben's.
Best cheesecake ever – me and my family just went up there about a week ago. all of my friends told me that i should go to roxy's and we all decided to. when we got there they were extremely nice and seated us quickly. the plates are huge and the food is sooo good. i got a reuben and had to share it with my father because it was soo huge. but the food is delicious. now on to the cheesecake....its absolutely positively the best cheesecake in the whole of new york city. its huge (so share it with a friend) and it tastes delicious! we ended up eating there twice because we thought it was so good.
THE BEST I EVER HAD!!! – I ate at ROXY'S last night after seeing Hairspray... it was AWESOME! The sandwiches are legendary! It's a little pricey, but I pay 10 bucks for a sandwich subway... I paid 18.00 here. The CHEESECAKE was honestly THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD!!! I had strawberry... would have tried more but I would have busted lol. I have read some of the negatives responses here.... these people either have an alterior motive or are very bored... Roxy's was the GREATEST! Will return soon!
Overpriced huge sandwiches – Eh. I was here on business so I didn't have to pay - so I didn't care about the cost. If you order a club sandwich, it will be so big you cannot fit your mouth around it. This is not a good thing - it may look and sound cool, but it's impossible to eat without diseccting your meal in front of your date. Food wasn't that great. Tasted like low-quality diner food to me. Chicken was dry. Fries were mushy. It was fun to go there but I won't go again.
NEVER EAT HERE!!! WORST PLACE I'VE BEEN TO!!! NEVER EAT HERE!!! – This place is waaayyy overpriced!!! Even then, they have no problem with overcharging you. Just one example... I ordered a hot chocolate, priced $3.25 in the menu. I was charged $4.95, but when I pointed out the error to the manager, with the menu in hand for proof, he said that it was the right price and told me to leave. Before leaving, I went to use the bathroom. While waiting in line, I met 2 women behind me. They had been seated at a table and ordered their meals. They said the waiter was rude the entire time, and immediately after their food arrived, he slapped the ticket down on the table, informing them that they had exactly 1 hour from the time on the ticket to eat and leave. Every hour after that was an extra $20. On top of all that, the bathroom was disgusting! I've seen port-a-johns cleaner than that. The garbage was overflowing, the toilet had flowed out onto the floor. There was fecies on the seat. **shuddering** It makes me sick just thinking about it.
NEVER EAT HERE EVER!!!!! Save your money and go to the 24 hour diner on 8th Ave around 50th street. It's only a few blocks away, the prices are much better, the food is good and the people are polite.
