Very cool place. The eclectic decor is interesting. The food here is awesome. The crawfish Mac n Cheese is a must, along with the fried chicken. Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I go often for brunch and they never fail. Our go-to order is the jambalaya (served with fried eggs on top for brunch) and the chicken and waffles with banana foster sauce. Jambalaya always amazing and spicy. The waffles are light and pillowy, the fried chicken perfectly crisp, well seasoned and always moist.... More

Just came back from Sugar Freak. We had the blackened catfish po'boy sandwich and dark meat fried chicken. The catfish po'boy was flaky and no overcooked. It was a bit on the salty side. Maybe the fish was salted first and then the blackened seasoning was added, and perhaps the blackened seasoning had salt too. The sandwich came with fries... More

A unique addition to the Astoria restaurant scene...unique in decor, as well as in the menu choices. I have dined at Sugar Freak twice and both times, I was very pleased. The food was exceptional, with a variety of different choices. The deviled eggs, mac and cheese and jambalaya are a must try! Service was exceptional as well!

aside from the many po boys available, i never like mac and cheese because i'm not really into that much cheese on anything, but this place would be the only place i would order a side serving of mac and cheese! the okra appetizer wasn't too shabby, but i probably wouldn't order it again. the thing that was disappointing that...

Southern style food in Astoria. Something different when you don't want grilled octopus. Went recently for brunch, great menu choices that includes a mimosa or Bloody Mary. Nice and clean inside, good, attentive service, and yummy dinner menu too. Check it out!

If you know anything about me is that I have been to New Orleans so often that I can consider it my second home. So to say that I am a connoisseur of the local cuisine would not be overestimating this statement. I have tried numerous restaurants in NYC that says they are Cajun restaurants and frankly they just did... More

I have been to the French Quarter of NOLA and love the free-loving good-times vibe. I've tried New Orleans food all over the NY metro area, and have always been sort of underwhelmed. Then I went to Sugar Freak and it brought me way back- to the French Quarter. First time, I had their crispy fried chicken, biscuits, and mac... More

We came for brunch on a Sunday, the food was excellent and so was the spicy Bloody Mary. We visit NOLA a couple of times a year and found the food at Sugar Freak to be authentic New Orleans Style with many of our favs on the menu. You wont be dissapointed.
