We stopped here while passing through the area. Seems like a popular spot with the local work crowd. Menu is small. We all got chicken with two side dishes. You order at the counter and grab a seat. Order was filled in about 5 minutes....More

-chicken is the best. -side orders: best is the fried rice. -location: great. -parking: a bit difficult. -size: okay. -staff: friendly (almost all Peruvians). -overall cost: okay (whole chicken with two sides $18). The food smells amazing 😉
