Burger King In St. Albans A welcome addition to the neighborhood, an attractive and state of the art Burger King, just celebrated its grand opening last month in St. Albans, Queens, New York.  It was constructed on an old vacant lot in the area for decades. 

It is a clean, modern, and spacious place to eat which is especially nice because there aren't many sit down restaurants in the area.  This Burger King, had the classic staples associated with the franchise like flame broiled burgers, fries, shakes, and chicken sandwiches.

Even If you are a vegetarian they also have you covered with more recent meals like a flame broiled veggie burger with onions.   I truly enjoyed the veggie burger and smoothie. Most of the staff at the Burger King are very friendly. This Burger King is a nice addition to the eateries in St. Albans and Southeast Queens.


Vibe Restaurant - This is a trendy attractive soul food spot on Liberty Avenue. We hope it becomes as well known as some of the Uptown and Brooklyn soul food restaurants.  It is the closest thing to the highly respected soul food restaurants in Harlem.

It has a creative ambience and nice presentation of food with some artistic updated versions of traditional soul food staples.  The food at Vibe is really tasty and it is definitely worth visiting to dine or have receptions.  Vibe is located at: 
143-06 Liberty Ave, Jamaica, NY 11435. To checkout their website is click here .  For more info: See our full review

The Door - The Door is a true fine dining Caribbean establishment.  The food is Jamaican and West Indian artisan dishes.  The food is presented very well and the service is good.  The wait on busy nights may be a little long.  The atmosphere is really nice.
I want to say the door is the best Caribbean restaurant in Southeast Queens.  If fact I think it is one of the best restaurants in Queens in terms of savory delicious food.

Is there a better Caribbean restaurant in NYC than the Door?  You'd be hard pressed to find it in my humble opinion.   I think only Negril's in the Village comes close to the door in terms of taste and atmosphere.  But I'm a damn Yankee what do I know?  LOL!  The address is: 163-07 Baisley Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11434


Smoke BBQ Pit - This restaurant has a combination of modern jumbo screens but still owns a down home BBQ feel to it too.  The food is tasty southern food and the atmosphere is relaxed.

The service is also pretty good at this restaurant.  The address is: 
129-21 Merrick Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11434. Checkout the website click here . There phone number is: (718) 341-6100


Golden Krust - I know Golden Krust is a franchise that started in the Bronx I heard.  Some people may think it is too commercial but I love the food at Golden Krust.  The one in St. Albans, I find much more cozy with excellent service than the ones on Jamaica Avenue.  I can just taste the delicious coconut in the peas and rice.  I'm not ashamed.  I love me some Golden Krust! The Address is: 200-8 Linden Blvd, St. Albans, NY 11412

Smokehouse - The Smokehouse makes excellent food.  It is very popular so the line is a bit long at times.  I find their Caribbean food is better but they also try to do soul food.  The fried chicken could be better.

They do classic Caribbean food well.  I love their jerk chicken and curry chicken.  There isn't much seating at this Caribbean food hot spot.  However, the food is made fresh and hot. The customer service is pretty good too most of the time. The Address is: 189-33 Linden Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11412


Vital Health Foods (Juice Bar) - This is our wild card on soul food. It offers vegetarian spin offs on cultural dishes that are staples in the Caribbean, soul food, and classic American foods styles.

They have vegetarian burgers, fish, chicken and ribs vegan dishes and other healthy food choices.  If you are a vegetarian, vegan, or just healthy eater you have to try their juice bar stocked with nutritious foods and beverages.  For more info on Vital please Read our full review

Their address is: 196-14 Linden Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11412. Their phone number is: (718) 525-0992.

OG Restaurant -  This little gem of Jamaican Cuisine is near the business strip near the intersection of Linden Blvd and Francis Lewis Blvd.  If you walk too fast you will miss it.  It has excellent and tasty curry chicken and stew chicken.  It is small but cozy.  You will like this place.  Usually the customer service is good. The Address is: 205-03 Linden Blvd, St. Albans, NY 11412


Thomasina's Catering Hall (for Sunday Brunch) - this is an attractive catering hall that does great Sunday brunches.  The Sunday brunch foods usually features soul food staples like fried fish and chicken, yams, collard greens, and salad.

This establishment usually showcases live entertainment and they have nice desserts as well during Sunday Brunches. The address is: 205-35 Linden Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11412.

Maxine's Takeout - This is a very good soul food spot.  And probably it's the go to takeout place for soul food in the St. Albans, Queens area.  It has a few places to sit but is primarily a takeout place.  We don't think they deliver even with Uber Eats yet.

You can call to find out. They have a good deal with their 4 piece chicken dinners with two sides.  Also their chicken wings dishes are superb.  This is a great place to order.  Their address is: 
113-33 Farmers Blvd, St. Albans, NY 11412.  Call (718) 465-9812.


Seamorhen Fish & Chipsthis is a hidden gem to eat soul food cuisine on the border of St. Albans and Hollis Queens.  It looks like a small no frills takeout restaurant but the food delivers big time.  The service is also very friendly and courteous in this fish and chips haven.

We were happily surprised at the quality of the food.  The Turkey Wings are also amazing at Seamorhen.  You definitely want to visit them for takeout, in the area, or stop in for a quick meal with one or two people.

Visit them at: 190-7 109th Rd, St. Albans, NY 11412 or Call them at: (718) 217-8100


Sea Level Sea & Soul - is very good and promising is .  It is a well lite seafood eatery with good customer service and fresh seafood. It is owned by Ms. Aamira Moore, a gracious and experienced restaurateur.

This new seafood place has very good reviews on Google.  I have enjoyed ordering at the seafood  place on two occasions.  I had the fried chicken and the fried whiting and both were cooked very well and were tasty.  The eatery's side dishes of collard greens and yams (two of my favorite sides) were delicious. Sea Level Sea & Soul is located at 114-32 Farmers Blvd, Queens, NY 11412.  Their phone number is (347) 263-8300.

Reggae Taste - located at 129-26 Merrick Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11434. I looked in and loved the ambience of the Jamaica, WI, themed restaurant. It was well lite, airy, and clean.

I was pleasantly surprised and went in to take a look at the food. Wow it really was appetizing! I wasn't really hungry but the food got me really looking forward to a meal.

  1. J&C Seafood 112-10 Farmers Blvd, St. Albans,NY has been a staple in the neighborhood for more years than I can or should count. I've known the owners since I could talk so we go way back. The food is delicious, fresh, seasoned well, and good portions, the only drawback is the wait but it is so worth it. They have a few places to sit but mostly takeout and they have a breakfast menu as well.
