Stroe the menu items in a database and when you populate the menu, only pull menu items from the database that the user has the correct role for.

Take a look at Jeff Prosises' The SQL Site Map Provider You've Been Waiting For[^]

This shows one way to implement Johns suggestion.

You can use the sitemap as a datasource for your menu.

You can add Menu Control in the master page, & fetch the menu permission from the DB for the signed in user.
e.g if I were to have 3 menu control in my master page, I fetch the Menu access from the DB and saving it to the session:

public void DisplayMenuTabs()
            if (Session["Menu1Access"].ToString() == "True")
                Menu1.Visible = true;
                Menu1.Visible = false;
            if (Session["Menu2Access"].ToString() == "True")
                Menu2.Visible = true;
                Menu2.Visible = false;
            if (Session["Menu3Access"].ToString() == "True")
                Menu3.Visible = true;
                Menu3.Visible = false;

Not a very efficient or performant method. There are better ways to do things then beat it with a hammer.
