Moist juicy chicken with its saltiness perfectly complements the sweetness of fried plantains. Douse with lots of chimichurri sauce ... and you've got the perfect meal.

Been here few times in the past few month's. Always gets the order the family platter, chicken beans and yummy rice. So good moist and roasted chicken and side spicy mayo sauce the compliments the chicken so well. Yum

We got a family platter of whole chicken & the plantains & fried yucca. All were served fresh hot and tasty. The chicken was well seasoned and the sauces were a good compliment. The same waiting room & lunch counter were clean. The cashier was very efficient in getting the orders processed. Primarily a to- go venue.

I've been a loyal customer since 2000, my kids have been eating here and we have established friendship with numerous employees. Rudy the chef is by far the best!!! He knows how I like my yuca and without hesitation always... More

I hail from Arlington and crisp and juicy was pretty regular fare for us to enjoy. I hadn't been in the area in several years and made a special trip for their delicious chicken. It was good (get the rice and beans and try the two kinds of green sauce), but it was not like I remembered. I also thought... More

This is the best Peruvian chicken in the area. There's always a line of people waiting to pick up and no one minds waiting much because you get to enjoy the fragrance of the wonderful spices and sauces. Not a wide range of choices, but what they do they do very well.

I love, love, love Crisp and Juicy! We found it originally when living in the area over 12 years ago and I was sad to leave it when we moved. Simple Peruvian barbecued chicken, beautifully spiced and served with a selection of side dishes and a sultry, spiced sauce; black beans and rice, and fried plantains being my favorites. It... More

They do pollo a la brasa — chicken grilled over a fire. The best seasoning I have had. Nice sides (plantains, fries or yucca). Limited eat-in space. Mostly carry out.

This was my first experience with Crisp and Juicy, although I had heard great things. This is a Peruvian Place and it is tasty! I just loved the dipping "hot" sauce for the rotisserie chicken and the house salad dressing is great. We had the Yucca as a side item and it was delicious. Delicious place!!

We used to get carryout from here frequently, but had gotten out of the habit. Some out of town guests had heard about it, and we ended up getting carryout rather than go out to dinner. I had forgotten how good it is. Love the sauces, and we always get beans and rice. Coleslaw is only average, but the chicken... More
