Chupa de Camarones- Nuff said- by Swaff

This place is hard to rate for a few reasons. Half the staff barely speaks English. The other half does but who knows what you'll get so it's a gamble. If you call for to-go orders they make you call another number that's strictly to-go. Problem is some of their best dishes aren't in the to-go area... read more

I've eaten at Pio Pio too many times to count, but this was my first time to the Flushing Location. The food was amazing, as usual, and I really loved the open layout of the restaurant. I guess I'll have to venture out to the Bronx later so that I cover all of the Pio Pio locations!

We kept hearing about this place and then we needed to have our Christmas party catered. Someone suggested PioPio and it was not too expensive but what an excellent taste. The chicken was more than tasty but it was the home made sauce that made this my new chicken spot. Highly recommend the green sauce and the Yucca chips.

I love this place the food is very good spanish food. The plates are huge and the staff is always very friendly. Sadly parking can be a little tricky in this area but so worth it and I highly recommend this Restaurant for parties and large groups and families.

All the reviews we read about Pio Pio were spot on. The food was amazing and atmosphere fun. We'd read that the staff was rude to non-natives but we didn't encounter that at all. They were friendly and accommodating. Peruvian food is so good and Pio Pio does a great job with it! We'll be back the next time we're... More

I'm not sure where to start but the can sum it up in one word...excellent! The food was awesome. We visited the location in Jackson Heights during a weekday lunch right when they opened. No issues with seating or anything. We ordered the combo meal as well as the shrimp dish. First of all, the combo meal is huge! It... More

The restaurant is not bad, the food tastes good, expected more from place to because of its atmosphere, to go and meet once is fine but not to repeat several times
