This spot has to be the best tasting Latin food I've had (besides my own cooking:)) thus far! It's a small restaurant but packs a big punch with consistent DE-LISH meals. I've eaten at Pio Pio more than once and they have never disappointed. The steak and onions is my favorite paired with their amazing sangria. It's a must for... More

The actual food was just okay. The food portions are small compare to the price. Rice, beans and chicken are cheap items, there is no reason for the small portions My breaded chicken was cut too thing. I feel that they want the customers to pay for the new building with the extra profits they make by not serving enough... More

What a gem! The restaurant doesn't look like much from outside, but the food is worth coming inside. We came for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. There were five of us and they seated us with no problems. We decided to do it family style, with chicken and beef empanadas, ceviche and the Matador lunch. The Matador lunch was a... More

You can pretty much order anything on the menu and you'll love it. Don't let the location fool you. This is a great place to eat.

We were looking for a little lunch near our I-Drive hotel, and I remember Pollos Pio Pio. This was a wonderful stop. i thought it a good sign when we walked in to hear very little English being spoken. We were seated and given menus. The waiter suggested a Colombian beer, it was quite light, but refreshing when served in... More

We are in Orlando for a weekend family vacation. I was looking for a good place for dinner, but wanting to stay away from the usual chain restaurants that are close to our hotel. I came across Pollos Pio Pio and we are so glad we did. It's a Colombian restaurant, but had some Peruvian items on the menu as... More

We thought we were going to a Peruvian restaurant owned by Peruvians. Turns out that wasn’t the case. What we can tell you is the food is pretty good here. Everything we had was good including the chicken, the fruit juices, and everything else. Our greeting upon entry was a little odd, as we were asked if we had a... More

The patacones were very good, but the chicken is being drizzled with some kind of oil that leaves a distasteful aftertaste. The fruit juice was way too sweet, but the rest of the food was ok

I really wanted to like this place. I live local and saw how highly rated this place was. The food is outstanding. Lots of flavor and cooked perfectly, however, the service experience completely negates that. We waited over 20 minutes to be sat while there were many empty tables, people that were sat after us got their entrees before we... More

So glad we didn't nudge this restaurant by its exterior. We both had the grilled chicken with different side dishes. My husband had the side salad and I had the saffron rice and sliced avocado. Wow! We both came away very impressed. And let's not forget the sangria - among the best I've ever had.
