The bar at this Dominican diner bustles with elderly Spanish-speaking aunties and blue-collar workers who come for the coffee klatsch and the steam table, with its dozens of choices like shredded pork, chicken, and beef stew. A hefty stereo system blares over all, competing with whatever game’s on the flatscreen TVs. None of the black-vested servers speak a word of English, but that doesn’t stop local families from buzzing in and out all evening, taking advantage of cheap steak and chicken combo specials. The skirt steak Churrasco is a standout, grilled fork-tender and folded over twice on itself, served flecked with salt, pepper, and garlic. Latin seafood classics also make a strong showing, including camarones al ajillo, a half dozen huge shrimp served in a pool of sharply garlicky butter sauce.Combo Specials
$16.30 buys a combo special of two whole chickens, a massive pile of rice and beans, a salad and a liter of soda; other combos range from $14.95 to $22.95.Recommended Dishes
Camarones al ajillo, $17.95; churrasco, $19.45; pollo, $9.95
