Is it the CHicken or the sauce or both together I am not sure but everytime I visit DC this is a must for me to stop at. The chicken is crisp and juicy and absolutely delicious.

Please don't let the appearances of this restaurant fool you, it has some amazing Peruvian food! It's a tiny little place on the end of the shops there with almost no seating but a great menu. I would highly recommend the fried plantains, a 1/4 chicken with some rice and black beans. Don't forget that f you go, you can... More

This place seems to get better press than it deserves, but when comparing to the many similar restaurants within a 2 mile radius (I can think of at least 7), it isn't in my top 3 and I haven't tried them all. I go to these places for the following reasons: 1. The chicken 2. The sides 3. The sauces... More

I actually love Crisp & Juicy food. The chicken and fried yucca is amazing, but this location is just awful. I've attempted to pick up food here multiple times, but only once was I able to get what I actually wanted to order, and while ordering another woman came in to point out an issue with her meal and the...

As above, the chicken was very juicy, but not at all crisp, which I was very much hoping it would be. As far as I am concerned, when you name your restaurant Crisp & Juicy, then you'd better guarantee that your product reflects that. The flavor was good. I got the roasted 1/2 chicken platter, and I got a double... More

I've been going to Crisp and Juicy for over 15 years. It once was amazing, but now is just OK, and sometimes worse than that. Chickens used to be roasted throughout the day and through the dinner hours. Now, if you go in to pick up dinner, the chickens are precooked and sitting around, and the charcoal oven is shut...

There are a lot of great chicken places in Arlington, but my favorite is Crisp & Juicy. The flavor is just that much better...and that hot (orange) sauce...YUM! I put it on the chicken any the black beans & rice, too. Sometimes the beans & rice can get a little soupy...but I can over look that. Love that they have... More

If you love chicken, you'll fall in love with Crisp & Juicy! Their rotisserie Peruvian chicken is so tender and juicy that it is great all by itself. But, you have the option to add medium or hot sauces which add a delicious complimentary flavor to the wonderful chicken. Not much of an area to sit in the restaurant, but... More
