They spent some money decorating it, and there... More

Service is slow and then they come back with a cold piece of chicken! I told her that the chicken was cold and she went back and microwaved the chicken. Like seriously??? So now I have microwave tasting chicken, they couldn't spare another chicken breast? They really should reconsider their name!

I went the other day to the Chicken Place and the food was amazing, and also, the service was very nice. I met one of the waiters there, I think his name was Martin.

I've been going to the Chicken Place for several years. Recently I began working in the area and have taken several of my coworkwers there. They love it as much as I. My favorite plates are the tamalitos verdes and the ceviche mixto and the cau cau.
