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.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
Beebe’s is a restaurant in the bottom of The Boro Hotel in LIC, and it’s a perfect for when you’re in the area and need something easy.

Everything at Kingside is overpriced and underwhelming. Spare yourself and only go if you feel like checking out the beehive of glammed-up female and single rich dude activity.
The Four Horsemen
Part natural wine bar, part restaurant, The Four Horsemen is one of our favorite places to drink and eat in Brooklyn.
