This is a very busy eat-in and take-out restaurant with a Latin America flavor. There are many typical dishes on the menu such as flan, yucca, maduros (fried sweet plantains), and arroz con leche. The major draw here is the chicken, and we saw most people eating it. The menu offers small and large portions of most side dishes and... More

This place is a real gem! The dish with the chicken, rice and sausage all mixed together is to die for. The yuca fries are so tasty. And their sauces and salad dressing are fantastic. Great atmosphere, very casual. Always good.

You know that food that you can just ALWAYS eat? This is it! Get the 1/4 white chicken with white rice and black beans as sides. Then order a side of sweet plantains and smother it all with green and yellow sauce. You won't regret it! And if you happen to go on the day that the chop bowl is... More

I had heard about this place by word of mouth and decided to stop in. There was a line outside waiting for it to open. I can see why. The food is fantastic. Reminds me of Pollo Tropical in Miami. Price is a little high for the amounts you get but the quality makes it worth it. I would recommend... More

This place may look unassuming, but the food is simply wonderful. Some places have overwhelming menus and choices.. Not here! Great Peruvian food. Great friendly service. 2 can eat here for less than $20. You must try it!!

As you approach the experience beckons. Bright yellow building with smoke pouring out of chimney. The smell is very enticing testament to the charcoal that is used. In other Latin countries it is known as pollo a la braza. Decor is very rustic, not romantic, however deliciousness of food overrides this. Great for lunch or take out for dinner. I... More

A Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken restaurant offering some delicious dishes: all-dark or all-white meat, luscious black beans, fried sweet plantains, yuca fries, and two dipping sauces. Place was packed on a Tuesday at about 1:20 PM -- and rightfully so.
