This Sheepshead Bay legend, founded in 1970 by Buddy Lamonica, is an exemplary example of fast-food done right. The staff, bedecked in brown seventies-style uniforms, serves up burgers and gravy-soaked turkey and roast-beef sandwiches on freshly baked Kaiser rolls. Lines of patrons grab tables in the cafeterialike space or take the food to go. Thin-crust pizzas are the sleeper hit, and sandwiches taste best with specialty sides of sweet corn fritters, or fries topped with hot Cheez Whiz. After all, as a sign reminds customers, “You can have cheez on anything you pleez.”
