Alpaca has become a six-location chain in the Triangle. Their main claim to fame is their roasted chicken. My wife has 1/4, and she said it was good. I had a veggie plate consisting of rice and black beans (excellent), steamed yuca (nicely cooked with...More

I was visiting Durham for the Art of Cool Festival and while on the block, the aroma drew me to this restaurant. I was not disappointed. I will definitely try the other locations which are closer to home.

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!

After 3 years in Peru, moving back to Durham had me craving Peruvian food! Thankfully, Alpaca opened just a few months ago, and I've been able to get my pollo a la brasa fix on a weekly basis. Their chicken is the most authentic Peruvian...More
