2. Donovan’s Pub

Donovan’s Pub is your quintessential Irish pub. Tucked away in Woodside, you’ll find this local pub serving up some of the best burgers in Queens.

You’ll find this burger joint’s namesake burger oozing with Gruyère, which they import from Switzerland, and practically falling over due to its ten-ounce weight.
