Tiny space, Giant flavor

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... read 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.

I have been to this small little place plenty of times since they open up and let me tell you, they have some good chicken...the plantains, with the black beans or tostones and that yellow sauce... you will wanna lick your fingers.

First time to eat here but will definitely eat here again when in Raleigh. The chicken is so moist and tender and the seasoning is superb. We had a variety of the sides and each were delicious. The cilantro salad dressing is unique and very tasty. The handcut fries are excellent and the plantains are really good.

THE BEST CHICKEN I EVER HAD!!!! Service was extremely fast even with a line about 100 feet long at the lunch rush hour of 12:00, The only improvement I could recommend is when dinning inside during cold weather is to stay away from the front door and maybe more options on the sides. All and all,,, I would go back... More

The buildings these restaurants are located in are very unassuming, but don't let that fool you. The chicken is very juicy and literally falls off the bone. Flavor for days as well. Also, they are conscious of where they source their chicken and you don't have to deal with beefed up bird hormones in your body. Must go to restaurant... More
