Wonderous place-Green sauce

Wonderful place. The kind of place that I look for when I am traveling but I am lucky enough to have it so close in good old Pittsburgh. Great owner story but the food is what keeps you coming back. Obviously chicken is the main attraction with many people getting a quarter or half chicken. I... read more

I was in Pittsburgh recently and ate at Chicken Latino. It was really good. I am a large eater so I ordered the whole chicken with two large sides. Ate it for lunch and dinner. The chicken is so tasty that you want to savor each bite. I also had their black beans and flavored rice. Both are simple and... More

We decided to have our wedding in Pittsburgh and the groom wanted a Tres Leche cake as the grooms cake at the dinner rehearsal. This place made the dream come true and had all 75 guests talking for days about how great the cake was. The food there is good as well but if you want an out of this... More

This place was a pleasant surprise. Chicken and the slow cooked pork were excellent. The yucca fries were amazing!We dippped them in the green (I think wasabbi) mayo. Really nice folks who run the place. Laid back and inexpensive, but really good food.

My husband and I stopped here while in the strip last weekend for a late lunch. We started with some jalapeno poppers, which came out quicky and were hot and tasty. I also enjoyed the passion fruit juice, very unique and different for the area to see on a menu. For the actual meal, I tried the 1/2 rotisserie chicken... More

Chicken Latino has the feel of restaurants in S America, which is not surprising as the owner is from Cusco, Peru. The weekend menu has one of the winners- the ceviche, which is not so easy to find in this area. The pulled pork is very tasty with perfect seasonings. And, we would be remiss not to mention the namesake... More

My friend and I went shopping in the Strip yesterday, we took a chance and stopped at Chicken Latino for lunch. We split a huge vegetable chimichanga, full of black beans. Mmmmm! It was sooo delicious and plenty for us both. Can't wait to go back and try the chicken!!!

I only had the sweet fried plaintains and they were satisfying. Although, I would have preferred the pieces to be in smaller slices oppose for being so thick cut

The YUCCA FRIES are very unique,try them with the recommended dipping mix and its unlike anything else.Yucca is a root vegetable, as is the potato. Deep fried (after boiling or steaming), Yucca is an excellent replacement for fried potatoes, and... More
