When you are anywhere near this restaurant, you can't help but notice the amazing aroma of their chicken . . . and it tastes every bit as good as it smells. For 160 pesos ($8 USD) you get a whole chicken, cole slaw, rice, salsa and tortillas. The chicken is tender and delicious. We ordered an additional chicken to take... More

My husband and I made the mistake of ordering a half a chicken. Even though the smell was intoxicating, and even though we could see the chickens roasting openly on the grill, we thought it would be enough. This was a delightful local joint with very friendly people flying around. Skip the rice and tortillas and just savor the flavorful... More

The perfect place for a street lunch, outstanding grilled chicken, we shared a 3/4 chicken (2pers) incl rice, sallad, tomato salsa (quit spicy) and extra guacamole and one water and a Cola light for 220 peso! It was really good! And very priceworthy!

We didn't mean to do it this way, but we got 5 to go (WAYYYYY too much food for 8 people but that worked out nicely for chicken and waffles in the morning). Tasty, tender, fantastic. And the cheesy potatoes were a million times better than anticipated. Two million. This place is fantastic!
