Hungry but don’t know where to eat? Here are our favorite places to eat and drink in Forest Hills.

Nick's PizzaNick’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.
