Spring has sprung, and there’s no better treat for the warm weather than a cool, creamy milkshake. These are some of the richest, thickest, and most of all, Insta-worthy milkshakes in all of Astoria.


“Extravagant,” “extreme” and “over-the-top” are only a few of the words that can be used to describe the shakes at Burgerology, home of the Monstrosity Shakes. Pictured is the Cookie Doughnut shake (regular size for $13, large for $18) which comes topped with a full-sized donut and cookie, so while you’re sipping on your shake, you’ll also be snacking! The glass is also coated in cookie crisp, so you’ll literally be licking your glass clean.

Mom’s Kitchen & Bar 

If you want to add an adult twist to a childhood favorite, Mom’s Kitchen & Bar, home of the Bigmouth Shakes, is the place to be. Pictured is the Rainbow Bright Shake ($12), flavored with vanilla ice cream, fruity pebbles and berry syrup (and topped with lollipops, too!). And for those who are 21+, Mom’s gives you the option of adding alcohol to any milkshake for an additional $7.

Last but not least, Comfortland is your best bet if you’re looking for a simple, classic milkshake, and is proof that sometimes, things are done better the old-fashioned way. The Peanut Butter Piff shake pictured ($8) is the perfect spring treat for peanut butter lovers, and is also topped with a handful of Reese’s Puffs cereal which gives this creamy drink some added texture.
