I’ve had lunch there 3 times now and have not been disappointed yet. Chicken is moist and very flavorful. The green beans are delicious too. I like the black beans and rice with the yellow sauce mixed in. If you like spicy sauce they have...More

Waited 10 minutes for string beans that were tasty. Yuca wasn’t fresh and quarter chicken portions were small. Extremely warm inside but synonymous with a college campus atmosphere. Popular among those in the area but don’t think I’ll be returning. Not bad but could be...More

Very rare I give a place like this 5 stars. Yes, their food was very good. But, what put it over the top was their “Flan”. That and the service staff, they were awesome! Best Flan I’ve ever had!

Chicken, corn tortillas, rice, beans, salad, all good. The chicken, of course, is the star, tasty and tender. Also featuring dessert.

My husband uses every excuse he can to go here. The chicken is great. The sides are good. The sauces, well, they are amazing! Definitely get the salad with the 'green' dressing. Parking is easy and there are great shops on 9th street

Never thought I was going to like this place so much. I have dietary restrictions (GF and DF) and eating out has become hard; it’s not easy to find places with knowledgeable people that would recommend safe food for you to eat. Mgrs here are...More

Ever since Machu Picchu closed in Raleigh, I have missed authentic Peruvian food. While this place does not have the wow factor of that establishment, it nevertheless has excellent food. This was the first stop on our recent Bites of Bull City's 9th Street Food...More
