Saw this restaurant while on the rode. Picked up half a chicken with sides and was thoroughly satisfied. For less then $9 we had a complete meal for two people. Everything was fresh. With high demand they keep cooking and food don't sit for long. Next time we're in the area we'll probably eat here again.

We noticed this rotisserie chicken place on our way to grocery shop at Wegmans. We had seen the favorable reviews and wanted to try the chicken. We were concerned that the chicken might be not as fresh since we didn't arrive until 7:45pm. We were surprised by the line and figured that it had to have good food. You place... More

This place is really awesome. You walk in and they have something like 30 chickens over a fire spit that is spinning slowly. It's real charcoal. I had a dish that was basically chicken fried rice Chinese style, but with spicy curry flavor and other flavors I'd never tasted before. it was killer!!!! The portions are massive and I could...

While visiting Ft Belvoir, my husband and I searched for interesting restaurants to try. This establishment showed up on all searches with great reviews. We decided to dine in. Orders are placed at the counter and your number is called when ready. The aroma as you open the door is tantalizing. We each ordered chicken dinners with sides of rice/beans... More

If you have never been to Peru, this would be a good spot for you to get a taste of their local food.

After an overpriced and under tasting experience at an Old Town Italian joint, had to go back to basics, Meat & Starch. Su Pollo has some of the best fried yucca I've had since I lived in Bolivia almost 20 years ago. It's amazing how the Trip Advisor community sometimes gets it right (Su Pollo) and sometimes gets it terribly... More

Nothing fancy about this place, just great food and great people. The smell will intoxicate you, make your mouth water, and your eyes drool. The best Peruvian dishes ever. The chicken, is flavorful, juicy, seasoned and cooked to perfection. The beef dishes also. The yucca and plantains excellent. Rice and beans is a cup of heaven. Love a place that... More

Everything I've had here had been absolutely delicious. Today I got their amazing lomo saltado (see pics). It's hard to mess up beef, light brown sauce, French fries, red onions, tomatoes, red onions and rice, but man, this place consistently makes the best lomo saltado. The beef is tender, the fries are cooked perfectly, the tomatoes are still a bit... More

This isn't your fancy neighborhood pearl, it's a workers place! But the food is really delicious home made food! Huge portions and great prices! Everything we tried was delicious, the Milanesa de Pollo (breaded chicken breast) and the Combinado (roasted chicken and steak) with fried yuca or french fries!! Forget KFC... este es tu Pollo!!
