“Love the chicken and plantains ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

You order your food at the counter and they will bring it to you .. sort of a fast food ish atmosphere. But the food is quite delicious. We go here every couple of weeks; usually when we have our dog with us, and we sit outside. The chicken is deliciously seasoned ... moist and yummy. I also can't resist the plantains ... cooked perfectly, and also, we get pupusas which are very yummy as well. And there is a creamy mildly yellowish sauce that they serve with the meal (maybe for the plantains; haven't figured it out yet) but, i end up eating it with everything. I heartily recommend this for a good chicken dinner or pupusas ..(haven't tried the carne asada yet) in a not so fancy establishment.

“Best Kept Secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is definitely one of Laurel's best kept secret's. The chicken is amazing. Tender, moist, healthy and delicious. Rice and Beans are awesome. Mix in the yellow sauce and green chutney to make it bomb. The carne asade is good as well but I always go for the chicken. Had it about 20 times now. Very reasonable prices as well. Not a joint to eat in, but great for carry out.

“Great Hole-In-The-Wall Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

If you like Peruvian Chicken you'll like this place. This former McDonald's turned into Mega Chicken isn't much on the eyes but it will do a number on your stomach. I've tried almost everything on the menu and it's all top notch. No frills, nothing fancy, just plain ol' good food.

Great quick lunch spot.

If you like grilled chicken you'll love this place. Not only is the food great, but the prices are very reasonable too.

“This place rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Be prepared, the atmosphere is fairly awful. But if you want a date place then go somewhere else. If you want good, authentic Latin American food then this is your place. Had the Carne Asada and it was very good. Loks like their chicken id also good. Be wary of the verde sauce if you're a gringo because it will light you up. I was the only non-Hispanic in here until a couple of moments ago. I didn't even know they had Fox Sports Deportes.
