“Absolutely the best peruan pollo”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Love this place. Food is consistently great, fast and cheap. Service is friendly and if it's busy with long waits the owners make convo. I love this food and I'm glad I can stop by when in town. Recommend!

“yummy chicken”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is pervuian food. Excellent chicken. They had a wide range of selections best to stop and see their menu vs. on-line (which is not real good) or take out (unless your familar w/ the location). The Yuca was ok but Mom like the plantans.

“Fabulous cheap takeout”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Why didn't anyone ever mention Peruvian chicken to me before? It's seasoned (not spicy) and cooked for three hours over a special charcoal until it is melt in your mouth delicious. For $6.49 per platter we got a plump quarter chicken that was like nothing I had ever eaten. The 2 sides that came with it were overflowing. There were at least a dozen to choose from. The plantains and chicken fried rice with big chunks of chicken went with the chicken perfectly. We rushed back to our hotel and gobbled it all down. Wish we lived nearby. There were a few tables inside. If you want salt, pepper, plastic cutlery, be sure to ask. We didn't and had to go searching in the hotel. The waitstaff was so friendly and knowledgeable!

“Good chicken for carry out- good value”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Being Peruvian I can tell you that the chicken here is good, however does not compare to the Peruvian chicken joints in Arlington and Falls Church. That being said, I regularly stop by for carry out and get the whole chicken with 2 sides special and feed my family for a great value. Ask them to cut the chicken in pieces if you like (8). The sides are good too although small in size for a family if you are getting the whole chicken family special. The yucca, beans and rice are good. Service is ok...the guy behind the counter could smile more and be more engaging.

“Good Food, Place Could use a cleaning”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Love Peruvian chicken and this place has good food but the guy working the register (the manager I think) always treats you like you are a bother to him. The place is also a bit dirty and it seems that every table is off balance. I know this sounds picky, but its annoying to try to eat and have the table rocking back and forth like a sailboat in choppy waters. There are better places close by (Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Chantilly)
