A group of us were in town for a trade show and needed a decent dinner. We walked the area looking for a friendly place that was smelled good on approach and reasonably busy. This little restaurant fit the bill. We had a 10 min wait but the efficient and friendly staff delivered an absolutely delicious dinner. It was also... More

Walking in I was a bit hesitant to eat here because of the wait and the size of the restaurant . DO NOT! Be discourage by this. The wait was well worth the wait. My family and I enjoyed the food and the service

We ordered the 1/2 chicken with fried ripe plantains option. The chicken was good but not as juicy as a perfectly cooked chicken. However, mixing their sauces together really adds to the chicken's flavor. The beans were delicious and the fried plantains were definitely a hit, and almost the best we've had... My own attempts at making fried plantains do... More

This spot was close to our hotel and had good reviews so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. We had the rotisserie chicken, rice, beans and plantains. The chicken was juicy, tender and the meat fell off of the bone. It was seasoned to perfection and the meal was accompanied by two of their sauces: a mild... More

This small 10 table Peruvian restaurant had lots of rotisserie chicken options. The food was good, simple, fast with friendly service and only a few dollars. It is in a strip mall but charming inside. I would recommend it for its convenient location for those staying near Universal.

We wanted something different than Disney and chain restaurants for a day so we found Pio Pio after a recommendation from a friend. We were pleasantly surprised - the outside doesn't look like much, and it is rather small inside, but that's not why we went. The food was great - fish, chicken, patacones, plantains, chorizo, even Aguila beer, they... More

Great Peruvian food as a whole, the chicken dish we shared was very good, but the Ceviche was amazing! If you like Ceviche, or Peruvian food check this place out

Very friendly atmosphere and the popularity is testimony to the good food. The papas criollas and yuca were a treat, washed down with colombiana
