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.

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.
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.
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!
