Simple counter served place with very good chicken. Rice and frijoles (black beans) also very good. The yucca fries were a disappointment. Not fresh, even stale maybe.. You chose the chicken portion size (1/4, 1/2, 1) and a choice of 2 sides. There are a...More

A very casual place where food is ordered at a front counter and you seat yourself. Overall if you enjoy a change in your dining intake, this is a good choice. The Peruvian rotisserie chicken is excellent served with two selections which include rice, black...More

There's nothing better than to eat homemade food while traveling. Food is tasty and delicious. The restaurant was clean as well and the employees were friendly.

This place has potential, but was also kind of a let down. The wait time around lunch was way too long. Took at least 20 minutes to order and get served. The chicken was very good, I really Like Peruvian rotisserie. The choices in side...More

I'm a regular at Mami Nora's, because it never disappoints. The Peruvian spit-roasted chicken is simply outstanding. Mouth watering infused seasonings are like no other bird flavorings and cannot be beaten. All of the sides are quite excellent, especially the cup of chicken/rice soup. But...More

By US standards this is incredible value. Delicious rotisserie chicken with the best rice I ever tasted and incredible hot sauce and yucan fries. We’ll be back.

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
