New burger joint to open on Queens Blvd in Kew Gardens

Texas Chicken moving into 120-10 Queens Blvd, where Caffe Bene was located

A restaurant chain serving southern style burgers and chicken is planning to open a Kew Gardens location in the fall, the company said.

Texas Chicken and Burgers, which has a total of 20 restaurants in New York and Philadelphia, is opening its third location in Queens this November at 120-10 Queens Blvd., near the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike subway station, according to Waheed Khosdal, a company spokesman.

In July, the restaurant chain opened its second location in Queens at 147-12 Jamaica Ave., near Sutphin Boulevard, in Jamaica. It also has a spot in Glen Oaks, at 255-21 Hillside Ave.

The menu features items such as cheese fries, biscuits, burgers, spicy fried chicken, homemade chicken tenders, salads and desserts.

The chain claims that its food is more nutritious than most burger joints. The burgers, Texas Chicken claims, are 100 percent natural, additive-free, consisting of preservative-free beef.

The menu is 100 percent Halal and Kosher. The company does not use lard in any of its products or oils.

“We have a better quality product than other fast food restaurants and yet we sell it at a lower price than our competitors,”  Khosdal said.

Texas Chicken and Burgers will move into the spot that was formerly the home of an independent café, which was at one time a Caffe Bene.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
