Just an fyi, this guy price gauges before pesach. personally that's a non starter for me, I would never use them. There is a car wash on corner of Rockaway and Sunrise Highway, that does shampoo as well.
IME even once they start with the “Pesach Specials” that place still allows you to get a regular car wash at the same regular price they charge all year.

As opposed to the mamzerim at the Shell station on Rockaway Tpke who doubled the price and said I had to get the “Passover Special” and wouldn’t let me get a regular car wash at the regular price. Even covered up the sign with the regular price outside when I called him out on it.

it’s open already ?
Side question: there’s been construction next door to achiezer on central, what’s going in there?
I know a million years ago it was supposed to be hibachi but idk if that fell thru or it’s getting picked up again

Yes
nice I just went  8) pizza review time
So the sign for the store got blown away so you actually won’t see a sign right now
The guys making the food are nice and quick which was a nice surprise for a new store. Got reg pizza and garlic knots
Pizza is 3.50 slightly more than other places on central and garlic knots is 4 for 3$ which the most expensive than all other typical places on central (Dave’s, j2, pizzale. Turns out pizzele has best price for garlic knots on central, who knew)
Came out quick. I noticed someone else ordered falafel which isn’t the typical ready item in pizza stores and it came out fairly quick too so kudos!

Pizza was really oily! Like..! Once I got it off w napkins the taste…was good. I’d say similar to J2 style wo the oil.

Garlic knots were unique a little browner than others and was very good.

Layout of the store is awkward as the sink is beside the cashier so you have to go almost behind the counter to wash.
There’s no bathroom!

As I walked out I noticed next door looks like more seating area. The manager told me after pesach they’re knocking down the separating wall and expanding , so that makes sense  ;D

Good luck to them!

Is there another place closer to Far Rockaway that doesn't price gauge before pesach?

If you don't need to be within walking distance than I would choose a JFK hotel.
