Savvy New Yorkers are always looking for a way to stretch the dollar – especially when it comes to breakfast, lunch and dinner. But since typical fast food just won’t cut the mustard, city eaters need a place that serves up quality along with affordability.

Palace Chicken & Pizza in Long Island City is just the place for good food at a fair price. This corner eatery specializes in fried chicken, perfect pizza, Philly cheese steaks and spot-on burgers. But it doesn’t end there – they also offer wraps, gyros, a long list of side orders and a breakfast menu as well.

Morning eats at Palace include all of the breakfast standards, made available at eye-opening prices. A platter of two eggs, hash browns, toast and bacon or sausage costs $4.25 – add French toast to that and it’s only $5. It’s a great way to start the day without emptying your wallet.

However, Palace’s value is truly felt at lunch and dinner times. Just over $5 can get you two pieces of crisp fried chicken, plus a biscuit and mashed potatoes – chicken meals are also available in three and five-piece deals.

If you’re feeding a larger crowd – be that family or work – Palace offers six, eight, 12, 15 and 21-piece meals with biscuits, salads and mashed potatoes from $8 to $26. Other variations on everyone’s favorite bird include hot wings, chicken nuggets, sandwiches and chicken fingers.

Palace’s burgers are also a reliable choice. Larger and more flavorful than typical fast food joints, these burgers are made even more mouth-watering with every topping. The standout burgers include the pizza burger, with mozzarella and pizza sauce, and the Hawaiian burger, topped with bacon, pineapple and jalapenos.

Wraps and burritos are also available, all stuffed with fresh ingredients like chicken, tuna, bacon, mixed vegetables, steak, sausage and gyro meat. Classic gyros are also on the menu, along with the house special Philly cheese steak. Palace offers four kinds of cheese steaks – with cheddar, mushrooms, mushrooms and gravy and jalapenos and gravy – all served with mozzarella, onions, peppers and mayonnaise.

Salad eaters also have options at Palace. Besides small and large chef, Greek, grilled chicken, Caesar, popcorn chicken and shrimp salads, Palace will also let you create your own leafy concoction. Choose from a variety of toppings and dressings for what seems like infinite combinations.

Palace Chicken & Pizza is fast, convenient and delicious – a combination all New Yorkers can get behind.
