Lunch around Madrid Atocha Station

We are arriving on a ten a.m. flight connecting to a 3 PM train north from Atocha Station. Can anyone recommend a place for lunch in the vicinity of the station? We prefer "tipico" to gourmet.

  1. There are lots of places (and many outdoor terrazas) closeby on calle Argumosa. One of my favorites is O'Pazo at Calle Argumosa, 28. It's down-home Galician food. Really cheap tapas at the bar, a full-service restaurant in the back, though we prefer to order from the bar menu and sit at the tables in the bar area. Almost all of the grilled stuff (like secreto iberico; chuletón) is good. I also like their cheesy salad. If you get there around 1:00ish you won't have trouble getting a table.
