This is a great place for lunch or dinner! Very good, mildly seasoned, chicken, with a large range of items to add, such as french fries, or fried plantains, or salads, yucca, etc. Everyone will find just what they want. Good service too!

I bought food from this restaurant 2 days in a row. Love, love their chicken, Yucca ( steamed and fried), and their spicy green sauce. The young people at the register were nice and polite.

I've never been here that the food was not excellent! Try it out! They have a couple of tables for outdoor dining.

Got attracted to the name and charcoal chicken. However was disappointed when I tasted the chicken. It tastes like rotisserie chicken. Personally, I didn't taste that charcoal feeling, not at all. I also advise, they upgrade because not neat and appealing.
