Peruvian Chops are the best!!

This is our favorite Mexican/Peruvian restaurant, and the food is better than the El Serrano in Lancaster. I always get the beef chimichanga & my husband usually orders a combo meal. The red sangria is good but could stand to have more variety of fruit in it, but I do like it. We also end our meal with the fried... More

The food at this restaurant is very good compared to the local cuisine. I am from an area with a local of Mexicans, so I know good Mexican food. However, the lunch portions are quite small. The enchiladas special has one enchilada and a plate full of rice and beans. If you really want some protein, you will need to... More

Always love this place. The owner is Peruvian so they offer that as well as the more familiar Mexican dishes. Licensed.

I was in there on Saturday night and I have to say it was fabulous! Laura waited on my boyfriend and I and she was wonderful. The salsa and chips were amazing, with the fresh cilantro in the salsa. I had a margarita that was great! For my dinner I had the beef enchiladas which I thought were very good... More

Authentic cuisine! Fresh table side made guacamole would've scored them more points with me. Atmosphere reminds you of Mexico in Epcot Center, I love it! Server was efficient and friendly. Food was full of flavor. A little pricey on the entrees, small plates available. We've eaten take out from here also. Romantic date night place.

Love the quaint atmosphere in the York restaurant. The food is great the salsa I could drink with a straw. We get three containers of it at a time to take home. Great value.

I'd recommend this place to anyone who loves Mexican. The salsa is fresh and delicious. We ordered the Pinchos and it was so delicious, tender. They are filet kabobs. I enjoy my salad and my husband loved his burrito. Margaritas never disappoint.

My husband and I had dinner here Saturday night. Overall, I was not impressed. The staff was all teenage girls who whisper and dart around the restaurant in skin tight clothes. Their manner of dress, movements, and barely audible speech gives the place an unpleasant, sneaky-ninja feeling. Our food was good, but nothing exceptional. We had an order of the... More

Food is good here although little costly. I ordered Fajitas which turned out to be really good. From here I got the idea of roasting the vegetables in this fashion:).. Service was slow , i guess could have been better.
