Dining at El Quijote is like taking a vacation—one where you’ve wandered into an utter tourist trap. Kitschy décor  makes the place feel decidedly non-Manhattan; but unlike in other Disney-style destinations, a dollar here goes a fairly long way. Huge portions make it easy to get stuffed on paella and sangria—that is, if you can make your way through the packed front bar area to the even more packed dining room. Situated near other entertainments like Hunkmania, El Quijote makes for a perfect (and perfectly cheesy) bachelor/bachelorette/birthday plan.

Recommended Dishes
