First time in Mexico and this was one of the best tasting meals we had. It did not seem like much but the locals pointed us in the PB direction and they did not let us down. The chicken was great and the price was great too!

We get this to go almost every week. The best tip is to get the queso papa and extra rice! We can eat on this for a couple of days. The chicken has the best flavor!

My husband and I arrived on a sweltering June afternoon. We were greeted immediately and offered a table. Not seeing a menu, the waiter suggested a half chicken for the two of us - so we agreed. Big mistake - we LOVED the roast chicken so much, we could easily have eaten an entire chicken. A shame they are closed... More

You can eat 1/2 of a splendidly cooked chicken with a beverage here for under 100 pesos. Tip your server! Nothing fancy of course, but very good.

Visited this little place twice while on holiday. The chicken is amazing, all of us agreed some of the best we have ever eaten, the mash side is also worth a try. Excellent value for money for a really great tasting meal, top marks.

My family and I stumbled across this place looking for another restaurant. The staff gave us a piece of chicken to try and that guaranteed where dinner was going to happen. The chicken is fantastic and both my kids enjoyed it. The sides of rice, tortillas, salsa, and guacamole were also quite good. Overall, a great spot.

My husband and I had walked by this place a few times and the smell was amazing. We finally shared a chicken (with taco fixings) for lunch and it was SO good!

Very fresh grilled chicken at $10 a whole chicken. Quarters and halves also available. Portion come with sides to make tacos with the tortillas provided. Only non alcoholic beverages available but the chicken is very fresh.
