The food was amazing! Great portions for price. If you like plantains you must try them here! Service is just a little bit slow. But that is my only complaint about the place. I think It would be great for take out too.

A fusion of many latin cuisines provided in this little hole in the wall, but certainly worth visiting. The mini bandeja paisa is more than enough for one person. The portions are more than generous and certainly tasty. We certainly had a blast and will definitely come back

Pio Pio was recommended by a number of restaurant websites and our meal there was outstanding. I love all things plantain, so our waitress suggested an order of half green and half sweet, which may rank as one of the best dishes I've ever had. Although the sweet were my favorite--I ordered another side to go--the green with the garlic... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the selection of food this restaurant had to offer. The owner said that they were known for their chicken so he helped us decide what to order. We ended up with an interesting combo of a whole rotisserie chicken, beans and spanish rice, french fries with frankfurters on top, fried green and roasted ripe plantains,... More

Pio Pio is located in a bit of a sketchy strip mall, but don't let that fool you. The food is excellent! The restaurant specialty is the Peruvian rotisserie chicken, which was really good. We got a family platter, which was served with rice, salad and fried crispy plantains. A huge, fantastic meal. It was especially great with the house... More

When we first visited Pio Pio, the charm of the restaurant was the attention one was given by the wait-staff and the black and white typed menu. The popularity of this restaurant has grown and so they have expanded both the room and the menu. Food is still good, and the value is still commendable. The standard of the number... More
