“Mmmm....chicken and fish tacos!”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

I ordered delivery from them twice while I was visiting (eh, too lazy to go out and walk into town.) The first time I got the quarter chicken with two sides. The chicken was really good and moist. The sides were okay, but nothing special. The second time I got the fish tacos. I thought since they were fried, they'd be soggy by the time they arrived for delivery, but were in fact still quite crispy. They were really good with the sauce on top. Definitely try the fish tacos!

“The Pride of Peru!”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

This place serves up amazingly delicious and reasonably-priced roast chicken and fish tacos. The Peruvian woman that owns the place takes pride in her food, and wants her customers to be happy. I certainly was and ate there pretty much EVERY night for an entire week. The passionfruit cheesecake was the bomb too!

“The Best Chicken (& Fish Taco) Addiction”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Have been here a couple times (and plan to go back many many more) when it reopened after rainy season. The place was recommended by a local friend and we love it too.

Thumbs up:
-The quarter chicken plate with 2 sides and sauce. It's brought out with a big smile. The chicken (and skin!) is so moist and well seasoned. Tried the chimichurri sauce. Yummy. And I loved my herb salad (big pieces of basil) and the cabbage salad. Fresh and the quality comes shining. Good portions.
-My husband loves the fish (breaded and fried) tacos AND chicken (big breast sections of the rotisserie) tacos! Comes with a delicious creamy sauce on top.
-The ceviche is the best I've had here in Santa Teresa. Comes with some yucca fries. Fresh and flavorful.
-Fruit smoothies. Love them. Our favorites, pina and papaya. You can get them with or without milk.
-Make room for the chocolate cake which comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Divine!

Prices are a little more than average (starting at $7USD), but it's worth it amigos. All in all, I highly recommend Chicken Joe's.
