Excellent Deli in Whitestone on the corner of 150th Street and 13th avenue.

Part of its charm lies in the fact that it is open 24 hours, but the lion's share of its appeal is the food.
Fattening, decadent deliciousness. The place is constantly packed with locals, cabbies, cops and young people from all over Queens that come in for a sandwich at all hours after rigorous bouts of drinking.

When ordering, I would suggest going for whatever looks like it is going to clog your arteries the fastest..
The "TCS" is their signature sandwich..fried chicken cutlet, gravy and cheese (you can substitute whatever cheese you prefer). It sounds simple, but it's done very well...and all is fresh because of the volume they do.

For those of you who know Stork's Bakery, it is diagonally across the street. You can not eat inside the Deli, however. My suggestion-- take your sandwich and head north and eat it while overlooking the water by Whitestone Park.
