First on the list is Grill 66, a new spot to score barbecue, burgers and chicken wings in Queens.

This joint specializes in traditional barbecue fare like pulled pork by the pound, rotisserie chicken and rib combination plates, wings, steaks, brisket and more. Sides on offer include grilled vegetables, coleslaw, macaroni salad and fries.

Yelpers are still warming up to Grill 66, which currently holds 3.5 stars out of 12 reviews on the site.

"I had Buffalo wings and ribs, and my friend got fries and pulled pork on a bun," Yelper Jason S. noted. "We both liked everything, especially the ribs and fries since you can tell they're real hand-cut fries and the ribs taste actually smoked and not just flashed in the oven."

Yelper Pete B. wrote, "Solid barbecue, especially for the price (we fed five for about $50). For sure going back but just to grab and go home."

Grill 66 is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on weekdays and 1 p.m.-11 p.m. on Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday.)

Next up is Bonchon, an Asian fusion spot offering Korean-style chicken wings with outposts in Asia and the Middle East as well as the U.S.

Keep an eye out for menu items like spicy chicken or bulgogi tacos, pork buns, crispy chicken sliders, tofu or seafood bibimbap, potstickers, popcorn shrimp, udon noodle soup, fried octopus dumplings and chicken katsu.

Bonchon currently holds 3.5 stars out of 27 reviews on Yelp.

"The chicken wings and the drumsticks were flavorful and crispy," Yelper Kathleen Y. noted. "However, the spiciness can be intense for people who aren't accustomed. My favorite dishes are the avocado salmon and the kimchi bacon fried rice. ... The decor is minimalistic and clean, and the lighting and the vibe gives a really comforting and cozy feeling."

Yelper Jacky C. wrote, "Very good chicken wings. The spicy ones were no joke. I had to save the soy garlic for last to cool down my taste buds."

Bonchon is open from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m. on weekdays and 1 p.m.-10:30 p.m. on weekends.
