I make a weekly trip to Costco on Vernon Blvd. in Queens and am looking for a good place for lunch nearby. Chinese, Greek, even GOOD diner-ish food. Any ideas?

      hmm, nice to see roti boti mentioned. it's at 21st street (east side) between 27th avenue and astoria blvd, near the stop light. it's a steamtable indopak place, so not everything is available all the time; what they do well is really good. everything is greasy and spicy, so you have to like that style. i like:

      chicken w/spinach
      meatballs
      dal
      lamb skewers (best thing if you don't mind GREASY)
      fried rice

      and there's absolutely NO atmosphere. blaaaaaah.

      they are right around the corner from me!

        I also like the chicken skewers, excellent both on (the best!) and off the bone.

        Malagueta, an outstanding Brazilian place on 36th Avenue, has great food in a pleasant atmosphere. It's only a 5 minute drive from Costco. For once, Citysearch has it right:
