My friend and I stopped here for lunch for something different. It was different alright rude staff,dirty tables & floors, cracked walls with peeling paint, cold food and small portions. I was not at all Impressed and will NEVER be returning to this unsanitary HOLE IN THE WALL!

I used to love this place and the only thing that disappointed me was when they'd run out of chicken before we got there. We stopped yesterday and it was a totally different experience. We practically had to beg to be waited on though two people were sitting behind the counter. The portions were considerably smaller than I remember and... More

The charcoal chicken is DELICIOUS. Small to mid-size chicken the way it's natural, not these huge flavorless chickens you see in other restaurants. The yuca fries will make you ask why I haven't heard of these before?

We were in a strange, new place in search of a good, fresh meal. Pollo Fuego hit the spot. Their roasted chicken was delicious. It isn't spicy, but they have a green sauce if you'd like to make it so. The mustard sauce was especially good. The black beans, fried yucca and homemade tortillas were also delicious. The staff was... More

We were passing by looking for a simple dinner without a fuss. Yes we found a no fuss place. I was thinking Mexican roasted chicken. I was close, roasted Peruvian chicken. Hubby and I split a quarter of a chicken with black beans and brown rice with two canned sodas for less than $12. That chicken was some of the... More

I needed something late evening and it was right across the street The service was OK but clearly it was a job they were working not a customer pleasing experience. Make sure you have something to eat with because they don't give out napkins or forks without self servicing it

This place has great Peruvian chicken. I usually get the Yucca fries and fried rice. When the fries are fresh they are delicious. The service is so so. They are not all that great but part of that may be due to the language barrier. I still recommend this place as the chicken is delicious.

This is in a hidden strip mall location but the food is worth seeking it out. As the previous reviewer said, it's not any kind of "restaurant" and we usually do take-out. The chicken is hot and fresh and the plantains are a must! My husband is also addicted to the yucca. You can get a great meal at a... More

This place is addicting. Try it once and you will end up craving it at least once a month!!! The specialize in Peruvian chicken and it is fantastic. The prices are just as great. Very, very reasonable. Do not leave without trying the fried yucca. You will never want another french fry. Even the coleslaw is great. The resturant itself... More
