This food is very tasty and a great value. Soup, entrees are delicious and the portions appropriate. Service can be slow but worth the food. Take your time and enjoy the food

Sometimes, as a red blooded man, you just have to eat a whole punch of meat and rice. When one gets a powerful lust like this, you just have to go to El Pollo Inka. We went down for a power lunch one day and to talk shop. Unfortunately we were sidetracked by the incredible volume delicious chicken and UV... More

This gem offers a wide range of Peruvian dishes that will satisfy almost anyone. Beef, chicken, seafood and vegetarian options are offered. The pricing is low for the quality of the meal. I had the special: 1/2 chicken, soup, salad, roll and rice for $10--it was delicious and satisfying. If you find yourself in the Los Angeles area, El Pollo... More

Whether you have the rotisserie chicken (inexpensive and plentiful) or one of the more complicated dishes, everything is well prepared. Taste the green sauce before using it...sometimes it is HOT...but it is always delicious! I especially love the chicken stir-fry... More

We were visiting California from Washington state and this restaurant was recommended to us. We visited at lunch on a Wednesday and it was very busy but no wait. We were seated immediately and waited about about two minutes for drinks but they didn't arrive until about 10 minutes later, at which time we gave our order. We were told... More

El Pollo Inka is a Peruvian restaurant with some very bomb diggity food. The chicken there is great and also the lomo saltado! The food is also very affordable, for $15 you can serve 4 people. I am not much of a fan of the arroz, but the place is still too bomb.
