    Bel Aire Diner in Astoria NY is THEE BEST diner in the Tri-State Area. They have a huge menu and all their menu items are prepared to perfection. The staff is friendly and very professional. The diner is super clean inside. The avolegmeno soup is the best I have ever had, and the burgers are the best diner burger you will find. If you are in Queens you owe it to yourself to visit the Bel Aire Diner. You will become a regular, after one visit.

  22. Uncle Phil says:

    Didn’t know about this contest and didn’t know about the Belaire in Astoria before today. But as chance would have it we were short on time and needed something to eat. And there at the intersection of Broadway & (not really sure) was a throw back-ish mirror exterior. From the hostess to the busboy the service could not have beennicer. And our waitress was a delight with all of our needs being anticipated. Fact is we commented how this could become a destination and made mention of our pleasant dining experience at the cash refister. As I was paying I noticed a handwritten modest request, “if you enjoyed there’s a contests…”. So what the heck! Kudos for taking your jobs seriously and for wanting the recognition. Well Deserved praise, even if you don’t win.
