Lucky Chicken has an extensive S. American/Peruvian menu. I recommend going family style and getting a whole chicken, plantains and Peruvian corn (a must!). The food is quite good, however there were not many visitors which is surprising. Please give it a try. Would love to see them stay open.

Food was not bad, service, a lot to be desired, they have a big nice bar.... no one to make drinks ever... unassuming, price.... for that kind of place, it should be cheaper... We may give them another try, maybe......

Dined here once with my husband. We both ordered the Peruvian rotisserie chicken which was good and served with the typical white and green sauces. The white sauce was rather thin/runny and less flavorful compared to what I've had at other Peruvian restaurants. The fried plantains were good. French fries very good. We also shared a tamale which I liked... More

We stopped in here after the Clayton turkey bowl, the food was great. They have a large variety of Peruvian dishes and the chef is amazing. Will definitely stop here again

Overpriced but tastes OK, Hard to spend $9 and get a cheap leq quarter with decent rice and beans. Go to Caribbean Delight for better food cheaper

Nice, clean place. Food is well serve and great flavor. I ate arros con mariscos, and was great. Totally recommended, if you want to try something exciting.

My friend and I went to Lucky Chicken on a very hot June day and were surprised to be the only two people in the restaurant at close to noon on a Saturday. We both ordered the 1/4 chicken. I received a thigh and leg while my friend got a breast and wing. Had I realized that an all white... More

My fiance and I had ordered the Polla a la Brasa last week.. We were told that the whole chicken portion was for about 4 people but we figured we could have left overs. So, about 5 minutes after we ordered we were told they actually didn't have a whole chicken and only had halves (you think they would have... More

I never can decide whether I want to order the roasted chicken, or one of their seafood dishes. Both are prepared well. I don't know why this place isn't packed every night. It's very good!! If you haven't tried it, order a Pisco Sour. Adults-only Peruvian drink. Knock your socks off!!
