A long staple of Raleigh, we just discovered Mami Nora's chicken, and we'll be back. We went for the Taco Tuesday special, and it did not disappoint. Three very stuffed tacos, with a minced chicken that tasted delicious. The taco is filled with cilantro, salsa,...More

This was the second time trying to eat here with problems when ordering. This time they wouldn’t honor coupons they put out! Outside of the tostonas the food is nothing special and pair that with the terrible service I won’t suggest anyone go here.

This place is a great informal venue for the quick enjoyment of Peruvian food. The food is delicious (rotisserie chicken), service is quick, prices are good and you'll enjoy a generous quantity of food. You will not leave hungry!

Sometimes the chicken is good and sometimes it’s dry and hard. They don’t seem to check or care what they serve you. Tired of their crappy attitude to customers.

Had dinner with friends. Enjoyed the Peruvian style grilled chicken and the coleslaw salad. The yucca fries were fresh and crispy.

Stopped for lunch, had chicken. Fries and salad. The best thing was the salad. The dressing was good. Chicken was dry and in need of seasoning. The fries were cold. I will not go back

Mami Nora's was a surprise. I just stopped by on a trip to Raleigh, looking for some place to eat. The place is family friendly and food is good and un-pretentious.

This restaurant serves authentic Peruvian style food that is A-1. The rotisserie chicken will melt in your mouth and is lightly spiced, but not to the point where it detracts from the wonderful taste of the chicken. The Arroz Chaufa is fantastic-chicken with stir-fried rice,...More

We always enjoy a good chicken dinner at Mami Nora's. It's a bit of a drive for us, but we feel it's worth it. The chicken is moist and the sides are delicious. We always get the same thing as it's consistently good!

Yes they do. Rice and beans, yuca and green or ripe plantains are all naturally gluten free. I can't remember if the yuca fries are dusted in flour before baking as I don't order them often, but the green and ripe plantains... More
