“Terrific all around.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The restaurant is quaint but charming and the staff are terrific. The chickens are on a rotisserie and you can smell them a block away. The food is spiced just right and you'll go back again and again!

“Don't Overlook This Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

The outside and access to this restaurant should not deter you from trying it. The chicken lunches are something to seek out.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

I go to La Chocita frequently for lunch or dinner. Though they have a lot of items on the menu I have not made it past the rotisserie chicken. It's amazing! It comes with your choice of two sides. It also comes with a mustard sauce on the side that I crave. The service is always fast and friendly. I am not sure but I believe it is family run and operated.

La Chocita does not serve alcohol of any type. It's great place for lunch, dinner or take-out. I enjoy sitting outside on their patio when the weather is nice.

“Best Deal in Town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

In these hard economic times, where else can you feed a family of four a solid meal for less than $30?Excellent rotisserie chicken, with the owner's super-secret spice marinade that he buys in the old country (El Salvador?). Great place for sit down lunch in town, if you're really hungry get the Campesino Alegre--it's a huge platter of stuff with eggs on top. For sides, always get the fried Yucca - you can never go wrong. Pupusas (kinda like quesdillas) are made to order and excellent. Really good chicken soup, too. Everything tastes fresh and homemade. Attention my fellow celiacs: the tortillas used here are corn flour only-including for the pupusas (and no noodles in the soups). They have a kids menu too, this is a very informal place. We do lots of takeout from here, I swear it's cheaper to buy a family size chicken dinner here than it is to buy all the stuff and cook it myself. Waitstaff are very friendly and efficient too.

“Authentic but not for everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

This place is a tiny hole-in-the wall cottage where you can get very tasty Salvadorean food and rotisserie chicken (and sides like yucca) in an elbow to elbow setting. Seriously, the food is darn good but if you have claustrophobia or need order and calm, this may not be the place for you. People waiting for take-out can block the front door completely and if it gets hectic orders may come out slowly or get scrambled. But whatever you get served you'll probably like it. Just smile and say gracias!
