Went to Roxy's for the first time this past weekend, one of the busiest of the season, and we loved it. We ordered one sandwich between 2 of us and it was plenty (plus some). The sandwiches are huge. The quality of the sandwiches was wonderful. Yes- had to take some lettuce off of the one just to fit it in my 16-year-old's mouth, but he really enjoyed it. The cheesecake was out of this world! Nothing comparable here in southern PA. One piece for 2-3 people is more than sufficient! So many different flavors to choose from! The waitress was right on top of things. Fast service. Yes- she wanted the table free for more customers since it was so busy, but never was rude to us! I think it is a MUST SEE place for the tourist. We'll definitely go back.

The ambiance, adorable waiter and atmosphere of Roxy was a joy for us 6 weary shoppers. Before boarding our tour bus for home, we stopped at Roxy for a quick "pick me up." Milkshakes were to die for. Everyone with cheesecake loved it. $9 a slice, but the slices are gigantic! We found our waiter to be most helpful and gracious, as well as amusing. We left him an extra large tip for his efforts. The sandwiches they were serving were huge and did look delicious. We found Roxy to be an interesting, fun place to sit down, relax and enjoy some sweet treats. We'll go again when in the area. I wouldn't call it a tourist trap. I'd call it a nice place to experience a bit of New York. We'll go back again!!

Bacon Cheeseburger for $15- I would expect it to be HOT and juicey, not luke warm to cold and tough ... .... The only thing good was the french fries (warm) and the pound cake with vanilla ice cream, definately not impressed !!!

Tourist trap? Of course it is. It's in Times Square. However, the hot pastrami sandwiches can't be beat. We took what we couldn't eat with us. The service was good, We didn't like the small tables and cramped booths so I gave the atmosphere a 2. We would go there again.

First time I went there, I got a coffee and piece of pound cake to go and it came to $4.74 total. The next day we went there to sit down for coffee and breakfast and when my husband saw the prices he didn't want to eat there. $25.00 for a sandwich? $13.95 for eggs, any way you want them? An extra $3 charge for sharing? A complete tourist trap? Hmmm. So after we said we're only having coffee the waiter breezes by, slams our check on the table. I go up to the cashier window to pay the bill and the waiter comes and says service is not included. What service? lol.

I went to Roxy twice because of the good words put into Roxy's cheesecakes; however, they were not my cup of tea. Dry, heavy, with a topping that is basically useless, the cheesecakes came to me with suspicious flakes along the edge --- probably from an unwashed knife , served on a cracked, plain plate, and decorated with watery, low-grade whipped cream. I also had a BLT sandwich during one of the visits, which was so stacked up with lettuce that I could not find a way to take a bite, I had to disemble them and eat with forks --- salad style, which was a joke in my eyes. I think Roxy was just for show, the towering sandwiches and huge plates were there to amuse tourists and be taken pictures (which I saw people doing), other than that, there was no substance. Oh, my waitress was rude, she kept pounding on my table and asking whether I'd like to order something else, then gave me the bill before I even finished my food, I did't understand why at that time, the restaurant wasn't even busy, there were plenty of seats empty, Only after I talked to a friend who worked in restaurants did I figure out that probably the seats were divided into different sections which are assigned to different waiters, the longer a customer stays at one table, the lesser opportunity the waitress has to take on a new customer in her section.

A group of friends and I were in New York the same time as Tropical Storm Ernesto and ducked into Roxy to get out of the rain and have a piece of cheesecake, It was absolutely delicious-some of the best I've ever tasted. It's 9 dollars a slice and worth it for an occasional splurge..They charge a 3 dollar sharing fee when there is no way one can finish an entire piece(unless one is a hungry judo wrestler). We split 3 pieces between 5 people and still left part of it on the plates . It is delicious cheesecake,though, and if I lived in New York I'd want the blueberry cheesecake on my birhtday!
