    Do not go here without trying the fried pickles! Mac and cheese is great also. Try the modelo especial with lime and tabasco.

    Enough with the fried pickle tips. We get it. When you're here, get yourself a Rootbeer Cocktail. If you're hungry, share the Mac and Cheese. If you're feeling frisky, talk to the girl at the bar.

    If you want to actually sit down and enjoy the excellent food, go during the week when it's not wall-to-wall packed.

    Fried pickles and the Mac & Cheese are out of this world. The burgers are also amazing. The night won't be complete without a pickle-back shot.

    Mac and Cheese is only available at dinner. They will not let you into the kitchen to let you make it during brunch hours.

    My favorite atmosphere in Astoria. Even if you're there for just drinks, order the Beer Battered Fried McClure's Brooklyn Pickles. Immediately.

    Everyone talks a big game about the mac and cheese, but don't forget to try the ribs. Also, their brunch Grilled Cheese with gruyere is amazing. Agree with the red lemonade, though. Mmmm.

    Pickles, fried or no, are fantastic. They've also got a decent beer selection. In the summer, go in the afternoon and take a seat out back. Not the biggest patio but it's relaxing.
