Petey’s is the closest we have to California’s In-N-Out Burger.
You may or may not be excited to learn that another Petey’s Burger is scheduled to open in Long Island City, at the corner of 47th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard in the far southwestern corner of the neighborhood, not far from the first stop into Queens on the 7 train.
Time Out already has announced that the place is open, but, take it from us, we’ve actually stopped by, and it’s going to be a couple of weeks at the least before it opens. A call is in to the management to find out the approximate date.
Petey’s Burger — the Astoria one, at least — limits itself to California “in the garden” style burgers, fries, and shakes. Recently, we declared it one of the top 11 burgers of 2011.
(Update: Received an email from Pete of Petey’s saying the place would be open in 10 to 20 days.)
