Fantastic Chicken!

This place has fantastic Peruvian food. The chicken is very tasty and you can have it with rice, potatoes or yucca. The Ceviche is out of this world. The service is excellent and the restaurant itself is very charming. I look forward to my return trip.

The area has a substantial Hispanic population so there are all kinds of Latin American cuisines available everywhere. Most are quite modest and local, but The Chicken Place is a bit nicer. They spent some money decorating it, and there... More

We have been going to this restaurant for the last 7 years. The generic sounding name of Chicken Place belies authentic Peruvian food, featuring their deliciously spiced roasted chicken. You can order a quarter or half a roasted chicken or a variety of other chicken dishes such as pollo saltado, pollo chufa (chicken fried rice) or tortilla de pollo (my... 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'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.
