Chicken you can't make at home

Nelly's new location in Centerville is cozy and quaint and the menu is simple and small. I usually get the 1/4 chicken with rice and a salad. I love the chicken because the rotisserie flavor can't be duplicated at home. The meat is so tender with so much flavor, no need for sauces or cheese... read more

This restaurant has moved to Centerville. Food is good if you like Bolivian food. Chicken is delicious! I only visited the Miamisburg location which no longer exists.

Some of the best rotisserie chicken I've ever had. Ever. I've literally never been disappointed with their food or service.

Nelly's is in a fairly new location. It is simply but elegantly decorated. The food was good. My husband and son loved their chicken special. They thought the spices gave their chicken a wonderful flavor and kept saying how good it was. I had the salad which was good, nothing special but probably authentic Bolivian. The beets were good in... More

The best thing about Nelly's is the service and hospitality. The dining room is cozy and nicely decorated with cloth napkins and table cloths. A step up from when it was a deli a few miles away. The specialty is Nelly's Original, which is deep fried rotisserie chicken. It was delicious and we both had it. It has a unique... More

My first visit to Nelly's was wonderful! The food was absolutely delicious, (the chicken was delicious!) the service was amazing and the atmosphere was very clean and cozy! We were a group of six, five of which had never been there before either. Every one of us loved our food and we all left wanting to return very soon!

Reporting that Nelly's has moved to Centerville. This very popular "chicken restaurant is now located on S. Main Centerville in a building that has seen several failed restaurant ventures. Good luck!

We love this restaurant. It is cozy and friendly. The servers are wonderful and anxious to please the customer. We love the mix of flavors and casual atmosphere with lots of windows and modern decor. The prices are reasonable and we are encouraging everyone we know to add them to their list of restaurants.

Been here multiple times for lunch. The charcoal chicken is excellent and a tremendous value for the quality of the food and atmosphere. 1/4 chicken, side, and salad for $7.99. Amazing! Can't more highly recommend Nelly's.

This will be my new favorite place to have chicken. The Bolivian spice is outstanding flavor along with the charcoal grilled preparation is delicious. Also enjoyed the tasty blak beans also prepared with a tasty seasoning. Surprised to see some good local draft beers which topped off the meal nicely. I'll be going back regularly.
