Hey Lewis,
I work in the North Bronx, University Heights. When I take my team out for lunch, we usually stop at BBQ's, right off the Major Deegan, exit 9. Doesn't look like anything much from the outside, but it's surprisingly nice inside, friendly staff. I've never waited more than 15 minutes for food, and it's very inexpensive.
If you're not into BBQ's, there's a nice little place on Jerome and 183rd, called Liberato's. Great spanish food. Oh, if you know some spanish, it will definitely help you there, too :)
And they just opened a juice bar about one and a half blocks away from that place, by 183rd and Davidson. Haven't tried it yet, but heard good things about it :)
Have a good day,
Kat

Hey Lewis,

If you are near Arthur Ave. go to the indoor market between E186th and E184th on Arthur Ave. You can get great authentic Italian-American options from a variety of vendors in the oldest indoor market in NYC.

Also on East Tremont Ave. at Mapes Ave. go to El Bohío which has by far the best pernil you will have outside of Puerto Rico. Basically anything there is fantastic but it is NOT light food. Salad for days afterward. :)

Another great option is Sabrosura on Castle Hill Ave. Chinese-Dominican and fantastic. Try the Tostones a la Vingagreta as a starter. Cheap place, cash only and amazing!

If you want Irish-American come to my neighborhood and go to the Heritage in Yonkers. (1/2 block from Woodlawn in the Bronx).
Great, I mean , great burger and splendid other options. My neighborhood is also worth visiting if you like all things Irish.

I hope this helps.

Greg
