View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This classic Irish pub has been a Woodside institution since 1966. There’s some real history within those dark-wood walls and stained glass windows situated right under the 7 train—ask the staff for some stories and you’ll end up around their fireplace listening to old Queens lore for hours. Donovan’s is best known for its burgers, which have been on the city’s various Best Burgers lists for at least a couple decades. While they’ve got 18 burger options, their most famous one is the simplest: a half-pound hamburger that comes perfectly cooked and seasoned with a bit of char, and holds together beautifully. If you’re feeling frisky, go for The Jack, and you’ll get some heat with the jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle mayo on top. Other excellent pub food at Donovan’s includes their shepherd’s pie, parmesan wings, and full Irish breakfast.
