Cheap, Simple Spanish Food in the Fort Lee / Englewood / Palisades Park Area?

Hello everyone,

I've been really craving some simple, cheap, and delicious spanish food, but I'm having trouble finding something decent around my area.

Really, all I want is some rice and black beans, chicken, and sweet plantains (though a flan dessert would be awesome). If anyone has any suggestions around my area, that would be great.

Thanks for the help!

  1. Englewood has two places on Palisades Avenue that may fit your desired descriptions.

    La Cumbia Restaurant
    2 W Palisade Ave
    Englewood, NJ 07631
    (201) 568-0303‎

    Just west of Dean Street on the south side near the train tracks is a place classified as a luncheonette or cafeteria where mostly take-out is provided.

    El Prado Restaurant - Spanish Restaurant
    99 W Palisade Ave
    Englewood, NJ 07631

    A little further west down on the north side of the street, but before the monument is a slightly larger and nicer place with more sit-down tables.
