Nothing fancy...it's a small take out shack with a stamp-sized parking lot. They do have a few tables for seating inside as well. But the chicken! It's hot and fresh and juicy and so yummy. You must have the green (aji) sauce with it! Other sides are rice, beans or salad. It's all delicious.

This has been my go-to rotisserie chicken place for ages. I'm lucky - I can walk to it. From the outside, you would never guess that the flavor packed in their food would be as amazing as it is! Don't forget that spicy green sauce to dip your chicken in, but also eat some of that chicken by itself so... More

I love this small restaurant. Have been coming here for years when I lived close by. Their chicken is grilled to perfection in a large stove using wood. The combination (salad, rice or fries, 1/4 chicken) was my go-to item when I was too lazy to cook.

Don't let the look of this place stop you. With piles of firewood stacked next to the building, you may think it’s just a trading post selling timber for your hearth. The inside, consisting of a small takeout counter and few tables, doesn't look more inviting than the outside. But people flock here not for its look but for its... More

I've been to South America and loved their wood burning oven chicken. This is authentic Peruvian style chicken with all homemade ingredients for all the sides and sauces. Loved the food and the people. A new building is coming up soon and will make it much more convenient for everyone.

I have had lots of chicken from many places and this place did not impress me. Chicken was raw, rice was terrible and beans smelled rotten. I do not know who would like nasty food like this one.
