Great southern comfort food!

The food was hands down delicious. The fried chicken is a must, one of the best I've had. Perfectly fried and flavored, so moist in my mouth! Banana French toast was nice and fluffy, and I swear they are not using regular maple syrup! So good! The jambalaya with over hard eggs was a plus as... read more

Had the French toast with bananas about 3 hours ago and I am still nauseous from the toast being drenched in oil and syrup. The first couple of bites were good but the the toast got really soggy as I continued. I made a comment to the waitress that there was way too much syrup and her response was "... More

Went here on a limb and was glad we drove over from LIC. The ambience was fantastic with great decor. The wait staff were fast and friendly. We arrived at happy hour which was a pleasant surprise as well. Went with chicken and waffles and it was a perfect selection for a cold evening (along with some Abita IPA's!). Definitely... More

Get off at 30th Avenue,walk 6 blocks to a place for some really good fried chicken and other southern style food. Had a nice Hendicks Gin Martini to start the fun. Mac and cheese and the potato salad were exceptional. One note to owners, collared greens were too salty. But everything else was nice. Good job!

I'm sad that I didn't have more time to spend at this place. I was in need of a quick and filling brunch before heading off to the airport. The Waffles with Bananas Foster topping on the side were absolutely delicious - I don't think I've ever had fluffier waffles than these. What made the visit absolutely worth it was... More

We really enjoyed a great brunch this past weekend at Sugar Freak. My son lives in Astoria so it's always a treat to visit. He recommended Sugar Freak--we are all huge fans of Cajun/Creole cooking so it was a no-brainer. There was a line outside, but it went rather quickly. We waited twenty minutes--but the weather was great and we... More

I love eating brunch at this place!! Unfortunately, they don't serve corn pudding anymore so I don't go often as I used t go ( since my favorite desert was that). But I still love the French toast and mac&cheese!!

My wife, son, daughter and I went to Sugar Freak for their Brunch on a Saturday. We got there a little before they opened and we were glad we did. The line started forming quickly to get in. All I can say is I highly recommend this restaurant. The service was good and the food even better. I had the... More

This is a unique place serving good food and an interesting decor. It's like taking a trip to Louisiana. The food and service were good. This is our second visit, it was as good as our first. Decent pricing, ample portions, diverse variety. All good.

It was nice to see a Nawlins themed restaurant in Astoria. We visit The Crescent City X2 yearly and have grown to love its cuisine. Sugar Freak focuses on the down home style, trumpeting its po boys, muffalettas, boudin balls, gumbo, and fried shrimp, chicken and oysters. Both the fried chicken and beer can chicken are solid and tasty. The... More
