Having a Coke With You
We've been trying out diners in Queens on the weekend. Old fashioned places are vanishing, unfortunately. The Airline Diner which we visited recently (and for which a review is quite tardy) fit that bill, even though it is part of a mini-chain. The Q Diner in the Queens Center Mall is definitely modern, but has the menu girth to scratch the diner itch. I ordered the conceptually bizarre, Chicken Fajita Panini and they brought me the chicken parm panini in the picture below. While the ground up texture of the contents was startling, the flavor was right on for middle-of-the-road-non-authentic-diner-italian and the sandwich was put together with care. The slaw was creamy-style and uninspiring, but the fries were crisp, hot and creamy on the inside. The basket of onion rings was a good choice-- they were generous in size, cooked just right and not too greasy. For a quick meal between forays of shopping, the Q Diner is worth it.
