The family loves crisp & juicy. We get the whole chicken and sides of the primavera rice and potato salad. We love the mild sauce for dipping. Always a great family carryout meal.

The chicken and actually all the meals are fantastic -- chicken is cooked perfectly and the spicy and mild sauces to dip in are the best ! The fries and slaw are great as well and thye staff is friendly and always accommodating . A great place for an informal lunch or dinner . YUM !

The pork was good and the plantains were excellent. Great little place to get some different food, especially something without breading. I liked the rice and beans that came with the dish as well. Overall, very good!

It's a bit pricier than other Peruvian chicken restuarants, but the chicken has good flavor. The staff could be a little friendlier.

Peruvian style place, 1/4 or 1/2 chicken with rice and beans is what most customers get. Sides of plantains, mashed potatoes, salad, etc. I just got a salad, which was huge and great, with a side of mashed potatoes, both were way above average. Employees super friendly, place very clean and newer. Near little Caesars, same shopping center as wendeys.... More

Since July the Gaithersburg site chicken no longer tastes like before, it does not have the char grill taste of smoked or have the spices of Peru.

Crisp and Juicy....(any location)....hands-down the BEST rotisserie chicken ever! So moist and flavorful! And the hot sauce is the bomb! Don't bother with the sandwiches. The chicken is the star here! Have eaten here for years (starting with Leisure World location) and it's been consistently delicious and always a fave! I wish they would open some locations in Florida. They'd... More

By far the most juiciest moist delicious chicken I have ever had. Crisp and juicy is a very appropriate name.
