Pickles are an essential topping that pairs well with most food options. Whether you’re having it with a sandwich, burger, potato salad or even by itself — whatever the case, Long Island is the home for some of the best pickle place around. But who makes the best pickles on Long Island?
Long Islanders voted Pickle Me Pete the Best Pickle on Long Island in the 2022 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest.
Someone once said they died and went to pickle heaven after sampling the main event at this gourmet market. Their fried pickles were sold in a kiosk at the Bryant Park holiday shops and were amazing. Go into the Hicksville store and feast your gaze on the inventory of nothing but pickles and olives.
The local pickle store sells pickled carrots and vegetables such as wonderful string beans. Choices range from full sour to bread and butter chips to wasabi pickles. But the fried pickles and delicious pickle story in general begins and ends here. Theirs are simply the best.
Try the fried ones sometime with the ranch dipping sauce for a twist!
Pickle Me Pete is located at 3 Bloomingdale Rd. in Hicksville. It can be reached at 516-531-3135 or pickle-me-pete.myshopify.com
