The food is always great! You can't go wrong with yucca anything!! It is very quick, perfect for busy nights you aren't up for cooking. I highly recommend it!

The chicken is amazing, and I love the variety in the sides. As someone who can't eat gluten (celiac disease), I love that they have so many sides that I can eat, and not get sick. The beans (seasoning) and chicken noodle soup have gluten, but everything else is safe for people who can't eat gluten. The maduros are my... More

Excellent take on the rotisserie chicken. Over charcoal. .beans are exceptional, sauces add zing especially the green sauce it is spicy! Good value.

Hole in the wall joint. Don't expect fine dining service, but everything they lack in the frills of "fine dining" they more than make up for in flavor and quality of food. I've been there twice now for a whole rotisserie chicken and a couple sides for less than $20. The menu is simple and their execution of it is... More

Simple menu, simple fare, simply wonderful. While ordering at the counter, you might get a glimpse into the spit roaster to preview the flavor extravaganza you are about to receive. Chicken is marinated to a delicate flavor and is juicy and fall-apart tender. I chose a side of yucca fries and they were crispy on the outside and soft and... More

You wouldn't just stumble upon this place, but it's worth making the trip. Very well priced Peruvian food. I particularly enjoyed the sweet plantains and the Arroz Chaufa.
