A leisurely lunch with friends while we all enjoyed our chicken dishes. One had the Monday special of Pollo Saltado while two of us had the quarter chicken. The taste, the smells and the flavors are all over the top. Although the carryout throughput of...More

Took family from out of town to MN's. As usual the chicken was very tasty, enjoyed the salad, black beans, rice etc. very reasonable prices with healthy portions. A very popular place and for good reason. Try it you'll like it!

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

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

As I stated in my prior review this place reminds me of some places in Peru. If you are looking for a good peruvian rotisserie chicken at a reasonable price this is THE place in Raleigh. Even so I typically get their arroz chaufa which...More
