This weekend we decided to give Queens a try, we visited MexiQ located at 37-11 30th Ave in Astoria. Take a peek at their menu .
We all liked the decor and atmosphere. We were seated in the rear of the restaurant in a semi-sectioned off space. We sat at a huge wooded bench table which is great to accommodate a large group. Located at the end of the table on the wall was a flat screen television, which had a waterfall in front of it. So basically you had to look through the waterfall to see the television which was kinda interesting and relaxing.
Ok, so now onto the eats!!!
@Moe_moNYC , @NYC_Girl and @Mieko831 we all had the french toast, which had a frosted flakes crust- they were “GRRREAT”! The bread was not as thick as advertised on the menu though. It was also served with 2 fried eggs, fresh berries, and bacon. The biggest downside was they did not ask how we wanted our eggs, so they all were over-easy.
@QNSbandito ordered “The hangover Cure” – Crispy corn tortillas simmered in salsa verde and salsa roja, layered with pulled chicken and chorizo and topped with 2 fried eggs. The appearance of the “Cure” did not look so appetizing – under the eggs was a jumble mess. Well, we did judge the book by its cover and it was the total opposite. @QNSbandito really enjoyed the “Cure” !!!!
Matt and @knickofsanity both ordered the Breakfast Quesadilla scrambled eggs, white cheddar, pinto beans & shredded chicken. They were not bad, but pretty plain. It could have used some seasoning. @knickofsanity also ordered a side of Chorizo Hash, which had a sweet maple flavor to it. He was disappointed it was not spicy or salty.
Oops, can’t forget about the side of Jalapeno Goat Cheese Cornbread. One word = Yum! However, at $4 for 2 small pieces, it was not worth the money.
This place had a decent sized crowd and they don’t take reservation FYI. There is a seven dollars option to make your brunch an unlimited booze brunch. The unlimited drinks included a choice of Bloody Mary’s, Margaritas, Mimosas, or Mexican beers, which we have yet to see at other places. The staff was very friendly and never left us with a empty glass – kudos to that.
Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 bellinis
