Peruvian Chicken!

Great chicken at a very good price. Very nice salad for this type of place. No ambiance, but who cares?

Superb Peruvian food. Casual family atmosphere with counter service. Very large portions; you might want to share. As the name says, chicken is their specialty.

This place has the best Peruvian chicken I have eaten in the DC area. It has all the flavors you love to taste in roasted chicken. Everything you eat here is hot and tasty, all the way down to the beans and rice! It's a small place but so good that sometimes you have to wait on a place to... More

I've never had Peruvian food but as I drove by Su Pollo with my windows down I changed my plans, turned around the car, and ate there simply because of the smell. The staff were very nice and gave me a taste of the chicken before I ordered. I've never had rotisserie chicken as good as that. I wasn't feeling... More

Second time here. It is a nice roasted chicken, crispy skin, good flavor, nice portion but this time it was a tad on the dry side. The side dishes were plentiful and good. Menu is small but with enough variety for everyone. They have a homemade cookie that is light with a caramel center that is really good. The staff... More

Ceviche was excellent and extremely fresh. My husband who is from Lima, Peru agreed but he had the Lomo Saltado and was a bit disappointed. The sauce was very dark and too sweet for his liking. Lomo Saltado should not be sweet. We were greeted at the counter politely and the food was served quickly. We would definitely return for... More

Good food at a reasonable price. The spices that are rubbed on the chicken skin add a delicate flavor to the meat.

it would be easy to pass up this place as just another south american restaurant on Richmond Highway. however, if you do, you will miss out on some wonderful chicken and sides all served in a very casual setting. you order at the counter, pick up your drink, sit down at any table that you choose and wait for your...
