A hidden gem! This Greek styled eatery is a diamond in the rough, with it's drop ceilings and panelling it looks like a old style diner but once you look past the decor the food is as good as it gets. When you sit down you are served warm fresh bread with melted garlic butter, the regular menu items are... More

This little out of the way Greek restaurant serves homemade specialities that are better than most of the restaurants in Astoria (Greek neighborhood in Queens) and less expensive. When I visit Costco across the Blvd, I aways stop in. The deserts are wonderful.

The staff were very friendly and courtious. The food was delicious. The grilled salmon was very tasty. I went back the next day and would have had lunch but I had to catch a plane so I treated myself to a piece of chocolate cake.

As it states this place has survived the test of time. Top notch Greek food. Great Gyros, burgers, chicken, fish, pork , salads and special are always offered and are great. Their fresh bread is spot on and the deserts are amazing. Not the biggest place and lines will form to get in. A locally known gem.

Whether you like gyros, calamari, salmon, chicken or meat...you're sure to have it prepared however pleases you. Jack runs a very down-home place, greeting... More

This restaurant has fresh,great food,and is known for their salads.It is a busy establishment since people seem to love it here. Waiters are always terrific. The only negative is the curb appeal and the inside of the restaurant is very plain.The focus is on the food and they do a terrific job with that.

Lucky Boy is situated in an off the beaten track location in the hinterlands behind JFK airport. We heard about it from friends who discovered it several years ago. Short on ambience but great on your taste buds and your wallet. Fabulous eggplant. Their homemade coconut cream pie is a dream come true!
