Hot Fresh Albacore Tuna Fish & chips - every time we visit Astoria this is a must visit ! Make sure you get there early they often times sell out of their amazing fish.

Fresh made to order tuna fish and chips are amazing. Outside eating only. Bottled water and canned soda is available for purchase.
