“Good food, Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Terrific chicken, cooked to perfection. Black beans and rice were excellent and the Yucca "fries" were so good you might not want potato fries again. Reasonably priced!

“Tremendous take out place - best in Bethesda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Definitely the best fire-grilled/rotissery chicken. The spices and seasoning are great. The sides are fantastic. Get the Plaintains. Get the Yuca. Get the black bean pico.

“Chicken done right!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Love their chicken - it's juicy and well seasoned. I also like their yucca, corn pico, and plantains. When I want to go healthy, their chicken salad is also very good.

The food was very flavorful, fresh and chicken was juicy and tender. The macaroni and cheese was really great! The service was friendly and fast.

“Gold Mine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Want to succulent, tender roosted chicken with two tasty sides? This is the place for lunch or diner. Look around, the diners are happy, smiling, and busily devouring their tasty chicken. Really efficient, your order is out is 3-5 minutes and you can sit down and watch some soccer game being played in some South American city.
