My extended family visited Nelly's to celebrate a birthday. Everyone ordered a variety of foods, including the rotisserie chicken, sandwich, plantains, mixed vegetables, fries, and mac and cheese. No one had any complaints and, in fact, everyone would go back! We loved the variety of the menu. If you wanted a more American meal, you could order that and if... More

Nelly's is a little known secret. I've been a fan since they were in a small shopping center in Miamisburg. The food is phenomenal and unique. Prices are very reasonable. They have moved to a new location in Centerville, however nothing has changed except for their building matches the quality of their food. The atmosphere was great, wait staff helpful,... More

Visited Nelly's with a group for a birthday celebration. None in the group had been there before. A variety of meals were selected and only one decided that his meal was above average. I have a Bolivian equivalent of a taco salad (with chicken instead of my normal choice of taco beef), and I would rate it as just acceptable.... More

Wow! What a meal we had at Nelly's. We had a party of four, and every plate was fantastic! The rotisserie chicken is the best we've had stateside! The Saice was also amazing. Met and spoke with the Manager on duty; she was very nice, attentive, and helpful. Our servers were very happy to serve. Our entire experience was very,... More

This place is awesome! I have visited several times and each time has been great. The atmosphere and the service is always great. I LOVE the chicken and the rice is great too. This is a great place to visit when you are looking to try something new, but want options that may seem familiar as well. I would definately... More

Have been to Nelly's many times. They are now called Nelly's A Taste of Bolivia. This is much more fitting because while they have great chicken, they are so much more than a "chicken place". The charcoal rotisserie chicken is flavored beautifully and the Bolivian food is wonderful. Good atmosphere and friendly staff and owners. It is a family run... More

We stopped by after a theatre matinee on Sunday because we had heard good things about their famous Bolivian-style rotisserie chicken. Started with empanadas to share--especially liked the cheese. We all had the chicken, which came with their delicious house salad and one side. Huge portions! The tres leche cake and the flan were both house-made and very special. We... More

They have charcoal rotisserie chicken and it's wonderful. We also tried the Relleno on the appetizers, sweet and savory plantains also good. We will definitely be going back for others things to try.

I love the food at Nelly's but the service is not that great. The hostess rolled her eyes at us because we requested a different table. She wanted to sit us in a dark corner but it was my husbands bday so I wanted more of an open space. The restaurant was not busy so I don't see what the... More
