Franky's Souvlaki

Perfect For:Late Night Eats

$$$$

Steinway St, Astoria
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Astoria is home to a number of excellent souvlaki trucks, but you’ll always see a crowd around Franky’s on Steinway, and for good reason. Their meat (beef, pork, chicken, lamb, shrimp) is high quality, and they put large, generous chunks of it in their gyros and sandwiches. You can get a thin, tangy white sauce that makes your meal feel less like late-night drunk food, or you can ask for tzatziki instead. The best experiences here are spontaneous, when the smell of freshly cooked meat wafts down the street and you can’t resist stopping by for a nicely seasoned stick of lamb.

Agnanti Meze

Agnanti Meze is a casual spot across from Astoria Park, and it has some of the best Greek food in the city. Bring a group, and order the octopus.
