You’ll need to completely unhinge your jaw to eat the cemitas at this small Mexican spot in Sunnyside, but a little minor surgery is worth it to get everything in your ten layer, meat-packed sandwich in one bite. Pork, short rib barbacoa, and even Southern fried chicken cemitas are available, and you can also get those proteins, plus some other options, in burritos and tacos (our go-to is the fish burrito). Order at the counter and then hang out at the eight-seat bar with a margarita or a milkshake. Also, they have frozen drinks with those mini Corona bottles sticking out of them, so you know you have permission to let loose inside.
