On our recent trip to Raleigh, my daughter requested chicken and rice for dinner. My sister had been wanting to try Mami Nora's so we loaded the car. You could smell it in the parking lot, that combination of food and grill smells. We all ordered the 1/4 chicken with various sides. The black beans were wonderful. The yucca fries... More

I ordered the half chicken with black beans and house salad with cilantro vinaigrette dressing. Cost $8.99. The chicken was moist and had an excellent flavor not found in electrically roasted birds. The salad dressing tasted fresh -it also must contain a good bit of oil as a drop of it on my shirt refused to wash off. The food... More

Amazing rotisserie chicken! Great taste. Make sure to try fried Yuca with thw yellow sauce they serve. Careful with the green sauce cause is a little bit spicy. We are regulars to this place and absolutely reccomended.

The chicken is seasoned & cooked perfectly. And the black beans are delicious. Staff is very friendly. The tables could be wiped down more often though. Otherwise this place would have been excellent.

This was my first visit and I really did not know what to expect. I have driven by so many times and saw the smoke billowing out of their wood-fired oven, saw they served chicken and finally stopped. Being a lover of anything near Mexican, I was thrilled to find that Mami Nora's is a "Mami Nora’s opened up in... More

Yesterday the hubs took me once again to Mami Nora's. We had been once before and it was so delicious! I wanted to return to see if it was just a fluke. Oh brother! This place has me hooked! I had the 1/4 chicken breast and wing served with a mix of black beans and rice and regular fries. The... More

The Peruvian rotisserie chicken is incomparable and unmatched in flavor per cubic inch. Other than switching up the sides on the plate (the thin brothy chicken soup is quite good and the salad with cilantro vinaigrette is a perky compliment), I have tried no other menu entrée. And doubt if I ever will. The chicken is perfection. Do not delay... More
