I had been trying to go to Sugar Freak for quite some time. The first time I tried to go it was closed. I believe they were doing renovations and I was disappointed, but they opened back up when I tried again some time had passed. The Creole/Southern Styled food at Sugar Freak made up for it in every way possible!
Sugar Freak is located in Astoria, in Queens, New York. Not far from Manhattan! The first time I went it was packed and we were able to grab the last table. Sugar Freak has a unique atmosphere. The waiters are very cool and laid back. There is a bar, chandeliers, place mats with all the presidents, and more. I also loved the mason jar glasses.
The menu had so much goodness to choose from that I had to ask the waiter what he recommended. It was hard to decide as I kept going back and fourth. He also told us the specials, which we also decided to indulge in. I order blackened catfish and sweet potato fries, which came with a salad. While I waited I tried a spiked root beer float. The funny thing about this is, I don’t care for root beer and I don’t really drink. Yet, I liked it. It was tasty.
My food came and it was really good. I was able to try some ribs (it was a special) and cornbread wrapped in bacon. The ribs were great. The cornbread with bacon was interesting. It was served in a pan with some foil. I was pretty full once I finished.
The food was so good I of course had to go back. I tried the fried chicken and waffle. This dish can apparently be made in several ways including frying the waffle. I also ordered the mac and cheese which tasted great, but it was hard to finish it all, I was full! I also tried some jambalaya. I was nervous because I thought it would be too spicy, but it wasn’t. Very delicious!
The service at Sugar Freak is really good. The waiters are extremely helpful. Especially when I couldn’t decide what to order. They are also friendly and attentive. It is a fun place. Even when ordering a Sugar Honey Iced Tea, they tell you on the menu you can just order it as a “SHIT.”
I highly suggest paying Sugar Freak a visit. You will not be disappointed! I know I will be going back to try some more things.
