$$$$Perfect For:Quick Eats

Included In

If you’re going to Coney Island, you probably have big plans to fill up on hot dogs and shellfish. Once you’ve got Nathan’s out of your system though, the best lunch option near the boardwalk is Doña Zita. This takeout counter is down a side street behind all the rides at Luna Park. On one side, there’s a taco station, and on the other side there’s a grill where you can order things like quesadillas, flautas, and gorditas. But what you really want is an enormous torta or cemita stuffed with meat, avocado, and about a thousand strands of queso Oaxaca. Getting everything in one bite would win you a carnival prize.
