Station House Burger

Hungry but don’t know where to eat? Here are the best spots to eat and drink in Forest Hills – that are all local favorites.

Forest Hills Station House

This gastro-pub is a go-to spot that can really do it all: lunch, happy hour, casual drinks, dinner, brunch, etc. Forest Hills Station House has 16 craft beer taps, a huge whiskey menu (there’s over 120), craft cocktails, and excellent comfort food. The neighborhood spot has the perfect casual atmosphere to chill with friends, and because of its location, it’s also a great spot for drinks or food before (and after) a concert at Forest Hills Stadium. The bar also has TV screens showcasing their beer on tap with descriptions down to their origin and alcohol content.

As for the food, order the mac and cheese or the Decadent Burger that comes topped with braised brisket, Boursin cheese, fried onions, wild mushrooms on a brioche bun.

Nick’s Pizza

Founded in 1993, Nick’s Pizza is a local favorite serving up crispy, thin crust pizzas and calzones in Forest Hills, Queens. They don’t sell pizzas by the slice – pies only – so come hungry (or bring friends!) Everything is made-to-order, so you can get as creative as you want with toppings. And, one word of advice, take the cannoli! It’s a must-try dessert here, and it tastes heavenly.

5 Burro Café

If you’re looking for a lively local Mexican restaurant serving strong margaritas, stop by 5 Burro Café. This staple in the Forest Hills community serves up tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas that are authentic, delicious, and wonderfully satisfying. There will be a wait on the weekends, but it’s worth it.
