consistently good

We used to get carryout from here frequently, but had gotten out of the habit. Some out of town guests had heard about it, and we ended up getting carryout rather than go out to dinner. I had forgotten how good it is. Love the sauces, and we always get beans and rice. Coleslaw is only average... read more

Crisp and Juicy has been barbecuing deliciously flavored chicken for over ten years, and most of the time there is still a line out the door. Although they also make good thin-sliced steak sandwiches and chorizo sandwiches, their main thing is the chicken, and it is delicious. One thing, though, they give you a choice of sauces, but the two... More

Finally got here and had the hot argentine sausage. I don't know what is "argentine" about it, but it was mighty tasty and plenty large. I will return.

Once a week i stop in here for lunch. I have tried darn near every other Peruvian chicken place in the area, and this is the only place i go back to.

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
