Roasty's-Oceanside, LI - What happened?

Does anyone know what happened to Roasty's, and if the other location in Long Island is still open?

    I f-ing wish I knew! Am so mad at them for going out... I didn't get it- they were always busy.

    We loved that place, had a party catered by them a year ago (people are still talking about the food) and were going to have them do another this spring.

    In answer to your other question, the Merrick location closed at the same time, as near as I can tell.

      After the Merrick location closed, we went a couple of times to Oceanside. Is Oceanside also closed now?

        Yes- Oceanside has been closed for a while now. The first sign of trouble was when they had a 2 for 1 sandwich deal. Then, a few weeks later, they were just closed - no signs, nothing. Now there's a "For Rent" sign. I am surprised. The food was good, and there were always people in there, like dude said. We're really wondering what happened.
