Uncle George's is an institution in Astoria and for good reason. A nice corner location, Greek music and of course, consistently good Greek cooking. A lamb was cooking on the spit as I entered, and they cook up the lamb in many ways served with tasty lemon potatoes. Snapper, fried calamari and lots of fish choices are also on the menu. For lunch today, I had the gyro which was a tasty lamb mix over grilled pita with lemon potatoes, tzatziki with a small salad of lettuce, tomatoes and onions for $8 bangers. Yummy, flavorfull meat, balanced by soft and slightly oily potatoes and super garlicky tzatziki.
