The origination.

While many of the best restaurants focus on the inception of their creations, we believe it’s also important to recognize the past. When it comes to the roast beef sandwich, history takes us to the year 1877, when ‘beefsteak toast’ was served. Cold beef accompanied with bread and gravy gave way to the sandwich we love today.

As we all know, this older version wasn’t one that hung around long. In fact, the dish was described by The Washington Post in 1990 as ‘an unattractive tired ark in a gravy flood.’ Needless to say, this review opened the door for culinary creativity.



More modern times.

Since the 1950s, the roast beef sandwich has been a staple in New England. Thinly sliced rare beef seasoned to perfection and served on various types of rolls, this sandwich can also be found with several toppings. However, as the best restaurant in Nashua, NH, Bentley’s Roast Beef takes great pride in offering a pretty simple version.

Okay, our roast beef is anything but simple. We just don’t feel the need to cover a perfectly good pile of roast beef in sauces that overpower the natural flavors. Instead, we offer our customers homemade horseradish and barbeque sauces that compliment the meal, should you choose.
