Changes done in 2019 has turned things for WORSE !!!
Pricier food but smaller portions !!
I have been a customer for the last 4 years. The sole reason was the quality of chicken and the size of the sides for the money.
Beginning 2019,...they went through some changes. They now allow you to pick your own. Doing this:
1. They have manage to increase the price when you order.
2. Competing restaurants have fries and Coleslaw as a staple. Now they have upped the Coleslaw as a "Premium" item, thus increasing the price.
3. The side order portions has decreased in size while the price increased.
4. The chicken does not taste as fresh anymore and the size of the chicken has gone down too !!
I am shopping for other options now..More
Lots of carry out folks through while my wife and I ate in. Obviously the focus is on chicken. Pretty good mains, sides were very good. We had coleslaw and yucca. They have fountain drinks and bottled drinks. Desserts looked very good (but did not...order one that night. Prices were very reasonable. When we are getting Pollo chicken and are on the north side of Herndon, I would not hesitate.More
I have been to this restaurant a couple o years ago and it was great. However wee brought home two whole chickens and they were unbelievably dry. The exact opposite you would expect from a Peruvian chicken place. On the positive side, the yucca was...greatMore
We stopped in for lunch and it was very tasty food. I've had chicken from a few of the Peruvian chicken places, and this is one of the best I've had. The prices are good ($6-7 for 1/4 chicken with two sides). It's a bit...of no frills when it comes to the ambience but for a casual eatery it's fine.More
The order of whole chicken contained a defective chicken--only one drumstick. And, the sauces on the side were not sealed, so they spilled throughout the bag. Very greasy order this time. Maybe a bad night or a change in personnel? But this experience was simply...substandard.More
Well I don't know what spices they out in this fresh roasted chicken but my entire family cheers when I come home with Pollo Peru chicken (and I have one picky eater!). When I'm super busy or just don't feel like cooking but still want...actual food to bring home and put on the table Pollo Peru is my go-to place. For about $16 you can get a whole cute up chicken and 2 large side. Honesty because the chicken is so yummy and makes great sandwiched I usually buy 2 which mean I get 4 large sides. For my family of six this means: 2 delish chickens, 2 large fries(steak fries), I large coke slaw and 1 large black beans. We are always stuffed and have leftovers for lunch packing!
That means for $32 I have two meals covered and 6 happy people 😃
Recommended for a casual dinner to-go!More
The rotisserie charcoal grilled chicken is very good. To make the meal a bit more healthy, remove the skin and pat with paper towels to remove the fat, but be careful not to remove the natural juices or the spices.
The sides are also vey...good--French fries, fried yucca, plantains, black beans and rice.
Ask for a well done chicken if you prefer well done.More
The chicken is absolutely fantastic. It is seasoned well and cooked to perfection. The sauces they serve with the chicken complement the chicken flavor very well. They also provide a number of choices in sides, so you will not go hungry.
My only complaint was...with the sandwiches. The chicken in the sandwiches is not as flavorful as it is when you order a 1/4 or 1/2 chicken.More
