Grabbing a bite for lunch at a deli is a New York staple, and for the delis that serve hot lunches, fugetaboutit, you may not make it back into the office. Andrew & Frank’s Deli on 28-02 23rd Ave. is as classic as New York can get, opened in 1967, that is almost a half of a century ago, this is truly what Astoria was built on.
The patrons of this legendary spot are the locals of the locals, we’re talking about your firefighters, cops, construction crews, city workers and old-timers. “When you go here you’re treated like family as you can tell with the loyal customers.” Yelper, John Z., praises the deli.
Andrew and Frank’s proudly offers more than 100 sandwiches and 30 kinds of hot foods every day, all made, of course, fresh to order. The sandwiches are piled high with portion sizes that are more than enough to take back to the office for second lunch or even for dinner. The hot plates are authentic and mouthwatering, just like Grandma used to make. The decor itself is undoubtedly a salute to the stars and stripes, it is classically simple with a proud sense of patriotism, family, and neighborhood.
So, the next time you miss home, home cooking, family, and community, you definitely need to visit/join the family over at Andrew & Frank’s deli.
