Kosher in/near North Shore of Long Island

I'm moving to Sea Cliff, on the North Shore--It's north of Roslyn, near Glen Cove. I have friends and family members who only eat kosher (they would not eat "kosher style"...). i believe the nearest kosher restaurants are in Great Neck, although heading south, I know there's a kosher bagel boss on intersection of Old Country/Clinton Road.
Both of these areas are about 15-20 minutes away. Are there any kosher restaurants/ grocery stores...that are closer, or just as close? Anywhere I can find Abels and Hyman hot dogs?
Also, for me, where is best shwarma in the vicinity??
I am going to suffer from hardcore shwarma withdrawal coming from queens. Can anynoe give me the lowdown on shwarma/middle eastern food scene in great neck, or anyplace close --will travel for good shwarma!
There is a Ben's Deli (Hebrew National, not Shomer Shabbat) in the shopping center at Glen Cove Road and Northern Blvd. Also, there is a Bagel Boss on Willis Ave. just south of the Northern State. I'm sure there are more in the Roslyn world, but I don't know them. Try shamash.org.

In Roslyn proper there is a Kolbeh (1 Intervale Road, Roslyn). They are part of the same chain you know from Queens - very good persian food, but I don't believe they have shwarma. There was a shwarma place (Hummous World) under the VHQ, but the VHQ pulled their hashgacha in May 2006 and I don't know what happened after that.
As mentioned above there is a Bagel Boss on Willis just below the Northern State. They are under a reliable hashgacha (Rabbi Asher Schechter - if you are from Queens you may know his FIL - Rabbi Peretz Steinberg from the YI of Queens Valley) but are not closed shabbos.
Other than those you will need to drive to Great Neck or Queens.
