“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

My boyfriend and I ate here for lunch one day. He had the half chicken with sides - it was so delicious. Mmm fried plantain chips. I had the chicken tacos which weren't the best. The meat was cold and gray...tasted okay though. Just wish it was fried! If there is a next time, I'll go for the fish tacos, I bet those are the bomb. Super nice service, great atmosphere!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

The name and sign are hilarious and you cannot miss it.

Been there several times and had the chicken meals and the fish tacos. Both are excellent but I would definitely recommend the chicken meals.

Slow roasted and seasoned to perfection. It's worth the trip just to see the sign and they also do takeaway as well.

Better than your average Sunday roast chicken, they have really perfected the art.

1/4 chicken meal is plenty for a hungry single person.

“Best ceviche in Santa Teresa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Chicken Joe's chicken IS super tender and delicious, their beers are extra frosty... and their home made chili sauce is ridiculous... but it's the ceviche *spicy* that is out of control addictive. Just to make SURE theirs was superior, we tried ceviche at every other restaurant but were disappointed! You will have to get your timing right... they only serve super fresh fish and they run out fast!

“Good little find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We had the fish tacos, they were breaded and deep fried...we prefer grilled, but the sauces that came with it made up for it! Then we also got Yuca fries with a spicy dipping sauce....muy bueno!!! Would go back again for sure, good meal for two with beers for under $20.

“Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Amazing fish tacos and when they tell you the hot sauce is hot. Listen! Yet I loved the hot sauce as well.
