Not a lot for vegetarians here, but the fiancee enjoys their chicken and soup. The yucca fries are great. The cold potato salad app thing, not so great. Plantains- so good!! Nice drink selection. The one employee is always so friendly. We'll be back.

I stopped by for lunch one day. The restaurant is small and simple. The staff is friendly and efficient. I ordered the lunch special chicken burrito, which comes with a drink. When it came out it was huge. The chicken was tender and had a wonderful flavor. The vegetables were crisp and the rice was very good. It was all... More

Have eaten here with my family several times, and food has been consistently very good. Chicken and steak chimichiri are particularly good main dishes. Yucca, plantains, fried rice, and rice and beans are all excellent sides. Prices are reasonable and staff is pleasant.

I have picked up carry out a few times but honestly the people that work here aren't friendly and the cooks point and laughter at customers all the time. Subsequently I have stopped coming here because I would appreciate nice service to accompany the food. If you are okay being treated rudely the yucca, plantains, rode and beans and chicken... More

The marinade on their chicken is to die for. Side dishes are a bit bland and limited. You get a lot for your money.

Overall, I don't think that the roasted Peruvian chicken here is as good as Sardi's, but it's still wonderful. To me, the burritos, though, are the real standout, especially the Thai Fusion. The burritos themselves are so enormous their hard to handle. Amazing flavors. And their green sauce is wonderful. Fast service and good prices.

This is a Peruvian place. The roasted chicken is just fantastic. Everything you buy is just delicious each time. The Yukon fries are yummy. Their flan for dessert is the perfect ending each time. Enjoy!

We were in the mood for chicken and tried chick'n pollo on a whim. It is a bit of a whole in the wall, but the food was surprisingly delicious. The guy at the register was friendly and patient as we were first time customers. We split a whole chicken and sides of cole slaw, fried plantains and fries. Everything... More

We order carryoutand delivery from here a few times a month and have never been disappointed. The chicken is outstanding and I love their fried plantains. They are always so friendly and willing to make recommendations as well.

The food was very nice. I would have preferred to have had some more traditional items that are not on the main menu. Considering the cost of chicken I thought the plates were a bit high, but the sides were extensive. We split a Carne Asada Burrito that was GREAT. The roasted chicken was very flavorful, but dry on the... More
