Village Voice's Description

Man, this is our kind of place: a bustling retro lunch counter located under the elevated tracks in working-class Kingsbridge, dispensing food several notches better than the premises would suggest. The roast pork is particularly moist (ask for boiled yuca with green sauce alongside),and El Economico serves the best Dominican sancocho, a soothing chicken soup thickened with pumpkin.

    Skip the roast chicken and rice and beans in favor of sanchocho, a starchy soup chock full of potatoes and yuca.

    There isn’t much decor here, but people don’t come for the ambience. They come for the freshly prepared traditional Latin American cuisine at unbelievably cheap prices.
