Joe's Bestburger is closed

Recommended Posts

Passed by this weekend. There's a note on the door stating that they lost the lease to the property and they "hope to serve you in another location soon".

 

Now what are we gonna eat on railfan trips? Burger King?!? Popeyes?

 

THE HUMANITY!

No offense to Kriston Lewis but I never heard of "Joe's best burger.'

Sorry to the employees who lost their jobs working there though.

It was a burger place in Flushing (located in front of the old QBx1 stop). It was a favorite among railfans, transit employees and people looking for a bathroom.

 

As for the food, it was better than what you'd get at a chain.

I have not been in Downtown Flushing since last summer. With that said, maybe it a small-size burger joint like the Papya hot dog stands in Manhattan because I never been in it or seen it.:)

How was the place? I've always passed by it in Flushing. I wanted to eat there but I never really passed by during lunch.

 

It was a pretty legit place before the management switched hands and I don't know what happened afterwards

The Village Voice voted Joe's Best Burgers' french fries the best in New York City.

 

OK. Still my personal favorite for fries at a fast food place is Nathan's. I like the fries more than the damn hot dogs.:cool:

I haven't been there since early 2008 during that (7) G.O. which suspended (7) service from Main Street to Woodside and the LIRR Port Washington Branch was free from Penn Station to Flushing.

 

I remember going there on May 25, 2006 after a Phillies-Mets game at Shea and one of the employees there was a Phillies fan lol.

I've eaten there three times. The burgers taste much better than the burgers at McDonalds and Burger King. It consists of these greasy patties with cheese that mellts, chopped onions, lettuce, and a tomato. The price is somewhat expensive, but worth it. The decor of the restaurant is a bit depressing, but who goes to a restaurant to look at art? The dining options in downtown Flushing aren't that great. Over the years, a Blimpies, KFC, and Wendy's closed (this was due to a tragic shooting).

Joe's was a really great spot before a change of management. The burgers, fries, shakes, and cookies were just fantastic. And then I would walk out with some chocolate coins. :P

 

But yeah, such a shame it closed. Been some time too.

 

It was coming once the quality of the place went down.
