Service was fast as it is styled as a fast-food take out restaurant, but their "pollos a la brasa" was so so. The fries were a bit soggy and the dipping sauces were kind of boring. It just did not do it for me as...More

Good Peruvian chicken. Good price for the quality and the portion size. Got the quarter dark chicken, corn, and fries. Took my recent college grad son. He really enjoyed it. They have the fancy Coke machine, but wished they had an actual Large to go...More

I had been to Mami Nora's a couple of times several years ago and enjoyed the food. On my visit last week the chicken was dry, tough, and had poor flavor. The rice was dry and sticky, and the beans were gooky. My wife was...More

It's always hopping here when I stop by to order dinner. My mainstay is the rotisserie chicken, you can't beat it. Comes with two sides and you got a complete meal at a great price

I absolutely love this place. A bit pricy for lunch, but worth every single penny. The place is always busy, so I manage to take my lunch at 1 when most folks gone back to work. Wish they had franchises everywhere. Can't wait to take...More

Mami Nora's has ruined grocery store rotisserie chicken for me. You can't even compare the two! Portions are large, food is fresh and prices are right. Try the yucca fries and fried plantains...they are AMAZING! You'll be stuffed! Oh, and they do take-out (you can...More

Response from Camalia | Reviewed this property |
Yes they do. Rice and beans, yuca and green or ripe plantains are all naturally gluten free. I can't remember if the yuca fries are dusted in flour before baking as I don't order them often, but the green and ripe plantains... More
