“Not as Good as the Pollo Inca a Few Blocks Down Elden Street”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

This place serves authentic pollo a la brasa peruana in shiny surroundings but is self-service cafeteria style. A few blocks south on Elden Street tucked away into a shopping center is the Pollo Inca, which serves the same stuff at similar prices but with friendly table service or friendly to go. Both serve great food but I've been eating at or taking out from el Pollo Inca for years and for identical food prefer their warm friendly service.

“Food tasty... Service line needs work!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Wanted to do 5 stars as the items were quite tasty.... Problems is in the service! This is order and pickup at the counter.... But since i ordered chicken the plate gets prepared right then. The hubby ordered lomo saltado which has to be cooked. So i was done before his came out! Or i guess i could have waited and then i could eat a cold plate.... Either way not a good option. On top of that our order never seemed to make it to the line... I finally went up when later orders were being called. They also give a large number to you which usually means they bring the food to you.... And then i heard them calling numbers. The food was tasty but they heed to get the kinks out. 5 plus stars on the plantains as they were caramelized and fabulous! Will be back but i will give them some time to work the service issues out!
