Got a “bowl” which consisted of rice, black beans, chicken, lettuce, tomato, and topped with queso fresco. It was actually pretty good. Vegetarians could probably find something to eat here, for instance the bowl i got could have been vegetarian if asked without chicken. Nothing...More

I'm not sure what Peruvian chicken is but Alpaca's has good chicken and great sides. The value is good and the flavor is rich. Be aware this is fast food not restaurant dining but it is good and there are tables.

Really good chain restaurant food. The grilled chicken, rice and beans and tostones were great. Their dipping sauces are good. On another visit I had really good plantains. What a welcome change from fast food burgers.

Really great roasted chicken , such flavorful black beans , grilled plantains. I also tried the flan and it was quite good, would have been even better warmed! Good selection of beverages including herbal teas.

Charcoal cooked chicken and roasted veggies. A great change from the fried or electric cooked usual places. The staff was great but WI-FI a little weak

I don't believe so however, they have a lot that can be bought a la carte in smaller portions. The good thing about the chicken is, you can buy a whole, half, quarter, so it's very easy to share.
