If you’re in the mood for burgers, sandwiches and all things fried, you’ve come to the right place. Queens Comfort in Astoria serves up a menu full of ooey, gooey brunch offerings. Think bacon-scallion mac and cheese ($14), Cap’n Crunch–coated chicken fingers with chili-bacon-caramel sauce ($10), an egg sandwich with bechamel, cheddar, bacon and tater tots ($14) and cornflake-crusted fried chicken and waffles dusted with powdered sugar ($14). The list of burgers also reveals some inventive twists, like the PB&J burger topped with good ol’ Skippy, grape jelly and smoked bacon ($12). Slightly more traditional options include a shrimp and fried green tomato po’ boy with remoulade ($16), a meatloaf sandwich topped with onion rings and bacon ketchup ($12) and a burger topped with fried jalapenos, bell peppers, cheddar and sriracha ($12). Be prepared: Queens Comfort is also BYOB and cash only.

This menu is insane. It's a mix of new orleans food. They have chicken and waffles but the chicken is dipped in corn flakes. They have disco tator tots. They have crumb cake made out of italian cookies. You'll want to try everything here. Also BYOB and cash only. Can't beat it. The vibe inside is really cool. Can't wait to go back!


Queens Comfort is one of my favorite places to go for brunch. I've gone more times than I can count so this review will be all encompassing of those times. The first time I went, the long line intimidated me. I thought, the food can't be that good. However, I quickly decided to stay because of their host, James Avatar, who not only does typical hosting duties, but entertains the waiting crowd with jokes and a charming personality. The line ended up going quickly due to the communal seating they have. The interior is crazy and fun with a random movie/show playing at all times and a DJ spinning great music during brunch hours. The menu is so unique; it's always hard for me to choose from all the variety. I usually get the fried mac n cheese balls or captain crunch french toast balls for starters. All the eggs benedict items on the menu are usually great, as well as the chicken and waffles and breakfast burrito. My favorite thing I got recently was an eggs benedict with a fried chili ring and potato hash. The flavors all mixed together so well. My friend got the shrimp and grits which was equally tasty. Their menu is constantly changing but there are some staples; you'll never have any trouble finding something of interest. 


The service is always super fast and attentive. The waiters often break out into dance or song. It's just overall an enjoyable place to be. Note: It's BYOB and cash only so come prepared.

So cute! So fun! Worth the wait! Such weird and crazy concoctions for brunch, that you wouldn't think would be good, but TOTALLY are! Fried Mac & Cheese and Brussel sprouts?! Awesome! So many hipster dude waiters, but whatever I guess, they were all very nice. The host was lots of fun and asked us what we're proud of on pride weekend! Currently this place has a sweet Giligans Island theme, but I get the idea that that changes sometimes. Lots of cool things to look at while you wait for your meal. Overall a very fun and delicious time!

Came here for brunch with a friend. They separated us into two separate lines, for parties of two and parties of more than two. You would think that the parties of two line would move faster, but for some reason, the larger party line got seated much faster than us. After about an hour, we got two seats at the bar (which we were fine with). Place is BYOB, so we just got coffee and food. I ended up getting pulled pork benedict with cheese and hollandaise which was absolutely delicious. I would definitely go back, probably with a party of four and a couple bottles of champagne. 


Amazing food, southern-influenced, DJ for brunch, BYOB. Feels like your grandmother's living room. Staff is quick and friendly.


First time I went... Half way through our order, the waiter pardoned himself to run off and join the dance party in the corner to "Back That Ass Up". He came back, apologized and told us he just had to join that. That is the environment there. Disco Tots and Atomic Fireballs sold us even more. Great time and Great Food!

Also, this is the only place where waiting on a line can be fun. Go and you will see.


Fun decor, delicious comfort food, new menu items on the reg. Great brunch spot and a place to take your guests! PLUS the BEST doorman in the city. He's got the best jokes- but only if you're ready for them.


The best brunch mixed with the best bouncer makes for a great weekend. Their weekly donuts are to die for.


Food is on point. Never mind your waistline. Add extra time in the gym their food is so worth it!


I think you guys should revisit! I only have gone in the past four months, but all three times were exceptionally good, from my homemade cranberry sausage benedict to my eating companion's McPig sandwich. Delicious!
