The Manhattan branch is still going through a mere one case of Cheez Whiz a day—much catching up to do to the original Brooklyn branch’s seven daily cases. That is, if the plodding line at the counter ever picks up. What’s taking so long? Tasty cooked-to-order grilled-chicken sandwiches and decent burgers on excellent kaiser rolls made by an old-school Brooklyn bakery (seven to ten minutes, please). The signature roast-beef sandwiches dunked in gravy are even better, not to mention quicker. We like the unironic seventies prefab fast-food look, the fresh-squeezed orangeade, the baked sweet potatoes, and the apple pie, too.
