Great food food a great price!

Great rotisserie chicken and yucca fries. Rice and beans just okay in comparison. Love the yellow sauce! You can feed a family of four for $20 with the "whole chicken" meal.

The food is always good. The line is always long to order. The self serve drink machine now creates a bottleneck. They need a least a second one. People buss their own table which means that the table is not wiped between patrons. This needs to change.

Mami Nora's is a family favorite. Their Rotisserie Chicken is full of flavor and incredibly tendor. Everything else they serve compliments the chicken perfectly. Will be regulars at this place, for sure.

The problem with this place is that now we have tried it, every time we go to Raleigh we just HAVE to go back! And i'm not one to settle on one restaurant, I love to try new things and see what is out there but this place is sooooo good! The chicken is cooked and seasoned perfectly, there are... More

I have ate at Mami Nora's many times. It so good I've never had a bad meal. I always take friends and family from out of town here. The whole chicken will feed 4-5 people it comes with 2 large sides I think it's $15.99. It really is the best rotisserie chicken in Raleigh.

Never had Peruvian food, but I had a taste for rotisserie chicken. I have passed this place 1000 times but never stopped in. A masseuse suggested we try it. The chicken was awesome! The meat was tender and flavorful, and tasted like it was cooked on the grill. I was not a fan of the Yucca fries (kinda dry) but... More

Mami Nora's is a Peruvian restaurant specializing in chicken. They marinate whole chickens in a special marinade and then cook them with wood coals. Turns out magnificent and very delicious - scrumptuous, one might say. Also they have some excellent sauces, very good cole slaw and rice and beans and tostones to go along with the meal - plus other... More

I handle all of the catering for my company and we have had the pleasure of working with Mami Nora's often. Our employees love this place! The yellow (mayo & honey mustard based) sauce and the spicy green sauce are very popular! The food is great and we get good portions for our money!

Normally we get the meal to go and I would say it was always good. But this trip we decided to eat at the restaurant. This meant that everything was very hot and just great. We get the chicken with beans and rice. Our grandchildren have chicken with a serving of corn. Our daughter picks a vegetarian options. It is... More
