This little gem is hidden in a corner near the Town Center 26 Theater, so plan to go there after you see a movie or work up an appetite shopping. Family owned and operated, you will be treated like family. Fresh bread comes first with butter and some type of very spicy sauce. The shrimp and rice, chicken with vegetables, and the quinoa with veggies are all delicious, fresh, and traditional. For dessert, try the plantains in a crepe-like pancake served with ice cream and caramel sauce. not too sweet but definitely decadent. Clean restrooms. Wheelchair accessible. Homey atmosphere.

The Ceviche Mixto is Peruvian style with white fish, large shrimp, and calamari rings marinated in a tangerine citrus base served with thinly sliced red onions and fried corn kernels. It is very light and refreshing. We also had the chicharron chicken, as well as the empanadas. All were very good. Service is friendly and efficient!

This was a very cute restaurant. Clean with very attentive service. The menu had many unusual sounding entree's and everyone had a hard time choosing. I think everyone had a decent meal, no one was crazy raving about how good their food was. Mine was a very nice, healthy dish, with many vegetables and a nice spice.

Right across from the Theaters at LBTC, this place was a nice find. The food is very good. We had the Ceviche Mixto, the Yucca Frita, and the Anticuchos de Pollo. The ceviche is in a bright citrusy marinade and has large pieces of squid and fish, served with marinated potatoes. The yucca fries are very tasty, and the chicken kabobs were nicely marinated and grilled. We loved the bread and cilantro sauce they serve at the table. Just the right amount of heat!

Love Peruvian food and was so glad to find Charo's in my backyard. The food was amazing. The empanadas were perfectly fried. Husband had the lamb and the white beans that accompanied his entree just made the dish.

I tried the anticucho sandwich and was not disappointed. The mango dressing on the salad was very light and flavorful.

But I judge a Peruvian restaurant by its aji sauce. Two thumbs up. I even bought a jar to bring home.

Will definitely eat here often.
