Woodside, Queens, under the elevated tracks, and not much to look at but the best burger (voted as such) in NYC. Reminded me of a public house in the town where I grew up, multiple dining rooms, friendly staff, excellent and reasonably priced food. I think we were the only folks there that the owner and staff DID NOT know, but no matter.
If you're not into burgers there are a lot of other things to enjoy, and great beer to wash it down. No credit cards so cash is king here.
