“Fantastic Roasted Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This is my new go to place for very good food at a very reasonable price. I had the yuca side which was also delicious. My next trip to Reston will include this place.

“my new go-to place for cheap eats in Reston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

If you're looking for Peruvian chicken in the Reston/Herndon area, then Pollo Peru is for you. It's located in a strip mall just a few blocks from Reston Town Center, and it's an order-at-the-counter and pick-up-your-food-on-a-tray kind of place. It's clean, reasonably priced, and great for lunch or (an inexpensive) dinner.

The menu features Peruvian chicken. You can order it in pieces (breast, thigh, leg), or have it in a sandwich. My favorite is the Pollo Peru Melt because they've cut the chicken in bite size pieces, added in lettuce, tomato, onion & cheese, and put it all on a warm roll for me. It's delish!

All entrees come with two sides, and my favorites are the beans, plantains and coleslaw. They also offer a few desserts and the tres leeches is yummy to share. Drinks are served in bottles and cans, and I'm hoping the owners decide to install a soda fountain machine someday soon.

Just go. You'll love it. Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken and fried yucca. Hell yeah. Don't forget to try the blue corn drink -- yum!

“great peruvian chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I ordered 4 chickens for myself and colleagues for a late evening work session. we had a variety of sides and sauces and everything was great. the plantains were some of the best I've had.

One issue - I tried to order online, but the third party website had problems. I just called them and ordered.

I'd go there again!
