Joe's Pork Store on Ditmars Blvd. & 37th Street in Astoria makes the best sausage you've ever had. For me it wouldn't be a Saturday afternoon without a stop at Joe's for a pound or two of the skinny sausage and a chunk of fresh mozzerella.... I grew up in Astoria and have been eating Joe's sausage for as long as I can rememeber - it was always a stop for my Grandmother on her daily shopping trips - and we all know how Italian grandmothers strive for the freshest and the best!
The sawdust on the floor and the antique cash register add to the store's charm - as do Joe's two sons who now run the store. They are a delight to chat with and you always leave Joe's with a smile on your face (and a brown paper bag in hand)!
