“Excellent rotisserie chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We frequently choose Pollo Peru for carryout, although the seating area is roomy, clean, and attractive in a bare-bones sort of way. The chicken is superb any time of day--hot with crispy skin and juicy flavorful meat. The sides are very good. We especially like the cole slaw, black beans, and rice. You can buy a whole chicken or a quarter, alone or as part of a dinner platter. The chicken freezes very well, so we usually opt for a whole chicken in order to enjoy the leftovers.

“A Weekly Staple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I live alone and so I make a weekly trip to Pollo Peru for a whole chicken and two large sides. That's 4 full, healthy meals during the week taken care of - and mighty tasty too.

“Awesome food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Really good food which would not break your wallet. I tried multiple items from the menu, with quarter chicken a common item.

“Hard to smell the food outside and not go in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The smell of rotisserie chicken first catches your attention long before you ever walk in. They have a simple menu. I always get the quarter chicken with plantains and sweet potato fries. The sauces that they give you are amazing and the price is very inexpensive. They are always packed for lunch every single day to give you an idea of the caliber of food that they have....

“Very average for the area”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Dry chicken, lacking in flavor. Great beans, average plantains. Cheap, but there are some great alternatives within driving distance.
