Small local grill kitchen, packed with locals - always a good sign. The options are whole chicken and half chicken, so not an extensive menu but the food is great. With your chicken you get rice, salsas and grated red onion. The chicken is delicious...More

This place has been open for a long time. It’s good chicken for a good price. It’s quick and easy on the go.

Reviews were so good we had to try, and we loved this place. Authentic local experience which we enjoyed, and tasty cheap food too. $70pesos or AUD$5.30 for half a chicken, tortillas and sides - we left very full. Absolutely don’t miss!

While I found the service lacking, te chicken was really good. It is a simple place . Mostly locals. I had an entire chicken and I think I should have had the half one. It was grilled well. No beer there so had water.

I found out about this resto on a travel blog before my travels and decided to give it a try. Glad we did. It was a little intimidating when we arrived because we don't really speak Spanish and did not know what to do. The...More

For 120 pesos you got a whole chicken, rice and onions, it was big and I couldn’t eat it all, very good value, a basic place but good food.
