However I went here for lunch today with three other coworkers and we were all very pleased with our meals. The interior is pleasant and comfortable and our waitstaff was very friendly.

Nothing really special about Pollo Bravo. another fast-food chain that gets it decently done on lunch time. If doesn't excite a lot also do not disapoints.

If you like to try new things, this is a great place to get your chicken. Not the typical chicken dishes but very flavorful and the service is topnotch.

Having Peruvian style chicken is a great experience to have. We enjoy it at least once a month. Lucuma ice cream is a must.

The place was empty at 11:00 am and I was wondering is this gong to be good??? At 11:35 the place was packed and the food was exceptional. Much better than Pollo Tropical and I like Pollo Tropical. The chicken has excellent flavor and as mentioned in another review the green sauce is exceptional.

While there are four sites, we visited the one on Hillcroft and 59, right on the edge of "Little India". We all had the 1/2 chicken (they sell 1/4 and whole), but we each tried different sides. Everyone loved the juicy chicken with its spicy coating, and the sides were all great (ripe plantains, fried plantains, fried yucca chips, spicy... More
