Tomorrow: Our 10 Best Incredibly Cheap Eats in New York

An overweight chicken roasted in the Peruvian manner will set you back only $3.10 at La Casa del Pollo in Jackson Heights. For an additional two bucks, you can have a giant serving of rice and beans. But will the place make our list?

[Update: The super-cheap-eats piece is now up, see it here.]

Most food publications spend their time trying to get you to spend $50 or $75 per meal at places they enthusiastically recommend. We at Fork in the Road want you to spend less, much less. Heck, for the price of a single $15 cocktail, we can get you three full meals.

Inspired by our own feature, Incredibly Cheap Eats, we've scoured the five boroughs to bring you the city's cheapest food, concentrating on those places that can deliver a meal for $5 and less, enough so you really feel filled up -- and have eaten something excellent and interesting in the process.

So please join us bright and and early tomorrow morning for Our 10 Best Incredibly Cheap Eats in New York.

In the meantime, please examine some of our most recent 10 Best lists.
