I was recommended this place by someone I do business with in Gardena. I was looking for a place to eat lunch nearby and said they had good food. First, I'd like to note that I was really hungry and could have eaten anything and still be satisfied. That's being said, I was very satisfied with the service and lunch... More

A group of 4 of us stopped in for lunch. We were seated right away. Service was quick and friendly. We each tried something different, but they appear to be known for their chicken. Portion sizes were large for lunch. You can eat economically for lunch --number of dishes under $10 to choose from. The meals we picked ranged from... More

Love this restaurant. Authentic Peruvian Food! Beef lover? Try the Lomo Saltado lean beef, sauteed with onions and tomatoes, served with rice and french fries or the Chauffa, which is fried rice you can add beef, chicken, or seafood to this delectable dish. My favorite is the Tallarin Saltado, which is lean beef sauteed in onions, tomato, and spaghetti. MUST... More

It was a packed Saturday evening, but got seated within 5 mintues. Got to our table waited another 5 mintues for server to come and offer us drinks. After she took our drink and food order the wait began. We waited 10 mintues for our drinks and the awesome soup that is complimentary. Our plates on the other hand where... More

Food is good here, I personally prefer lomo saltado. I love that they also give soups with the food. I like karaoke Tuesday, they're fun

I have been to many of the El Pollos and for many years. My favourite is Torrance but as this branch is closer to our hotel when we are in LA we ended up at this branch again. Not always a choice of which night as it has to fit in with the late nights work schedule and the limited... More

I was in the area working and wanted to grab a bite to eat before heading to LAX. I specifically asked the gentleman could the dish be made without a particular ingredient, he said yes. Well guess what, the plate came out with the food item I asked to be left off. Due to my time restraints and the ever... More
