Jackson’s serves mostly southern American food in a casual corner space on a main drag in Long Island City. You can get fried chicken and waffles, and some other comfort foods, like bacon mac n cheese. Happy hour drinks and snacks are popular here, especially when they have live music. It’s also a good weekend brunch option for people looking to chase their morning Advil and blue Gatorade with bloody marys and bacon-cheeseburgers topped with fried eggs.

M. Wells Steakhouse
If you live in this area, or you find yourself here often, M. Wells is a decent spot for a nice dinner. You can even follow it up with a drink at Dutch Kills for a pleasant, albeit expensive, evening in Queens. Unfortunately, that’s as weird as things are gonna get. Queens.
