Don't expect to find BBQ Sauce drenched chicken here. The chicken is slow roasted over charcoal and the flavor is beyond anything else. Try this and you will never want to eat fried chicken again!! I normally get take away and it only takes a few minutes. Go go go!!

We finally had a chance to try Mami Nora's after discovering the Raleigh location. The restaurant itself has a very casual, almost fast food vibe, but that's not a criticism! Everyone we saw was thoroughly enjoying themselves and the food smelled wonderful, especially the slight charcoal smoke, which was mouth-watering! Instead of ordering the normal pollo and sides, we decided... More

We came here over the weekend and it was amazing! One weekend we were looking for places to go and as we passed this place you could smell the chicken; so we decided we had to try. Don't be discouraged if there are not many cars in the lot; when we went there were only a few and when we... More

My coworkers and I go to Mami Nora's every Wednesday. Their chicken is always excellent and tasty. Their Wednesday special (Chop Chop) is amazing! Also, the tostones (fried plantains) are very tasty. Be aware they can be pretty busy if you come right around 12:30 on a weekday!

Mami Nora's is about the best Rotisserie Chicken I have ever had. Not sure how they marinade it but WOW. So flavorful!!! Get there early or expect a line and you might even have to wait for a place to sit. Try the Arroz Chaufa. It AMAZING!

This Peruvian style restaurant is a gem, always such a treat to eat here! We've tried three "made to order" dishes and the rotisserie chicken, everything has been great! Don't miss the cilantro salad dressing, it's so good I even dip my chicken in it. This is a serve-yourself style restaurant where you order and wait for your name to... More

So I had tried this place once before with my wife and decided to give it another try while in the area. The result ? I changed my mind... It was very good. Before the chicken was tender but not particularly tasty, not so this time, they nailed both. The question is did they change the recipe or having a... More

This place is a must to try. Their rotisserie chicken is flavorful and juicy. I have tried their lomo saltado and arroz chaufa but it didn't win me over. The chicken is the best on the menu. Also their homemade vinaigrette cilantro dressing is good for your side salad. The only negative about this restaurant is you need to pick... More

This is the best tasting chicken I have ever had. Roasted over charcoal, crispy and tender, it is good by itself or on their incredible chicken salad. Their cilantro dressing is really great. The carmel flan and the tres leeches cake are swoon-worthy. The price is great. Take out is just as good.
