Owners are wonderful folks. Food is great and pricing reasonable. If you've never tried South American food be sure to give this restaurant a try. You'll enjoy the selections and the flavors are wonderful. Good seating is always available.

Kind of hidden behind the ice cream shop, but offers great Peruvian food. The Fried Plantains were my favorite! Excellent flavor on the roasted chicken too. Owners were very friendly and we got our food fast.
