I had your catered rotisserie chicken served at the Carolina Theater last month. It was so flavorful that I couldn't get a second helping because it had run out! I enjoyed that chicken so much that I finally convinced my husband to order some at...More

We got carryout here, but the restaurant was packed. We had never been to this restaurant before - it's a small place on the corner of a strip shopping center. You order in line, and in many cases see your chicken being cut before your...More

The chicken here is fantastic! It has so much flavor - with the green and white sauce, to die for! The black beans were very good. Go early if you are heading for lunch because after 11:45am, it get really busy!

The roasted chicken quarter is moist and delicious. The to stones are yummy and the black beans are cooked well. This is a easy stop and will not disappoint if you want a Spanish dinner.

If you like Peruvian food, then Alpaca is your choice. The Chicken was seasoned well and sides to choose from delicious too. You can dine in or outside. Check it out! Yummo

We frequent Alpaca when we don't feel like cooking but want comfort food. Their grilled chicken is quite good, altho not all their sides are to my liking. The milk cake is my fav dessert.

This is a Peruvian restaurant primarily serving chicken. The chicken had feathers, not hair, so no hair dryers are needed.
