The rotisserie is going all day long. The chicken is excellent and the potatoes with the drippings are great. You're eating at a counter and no frills , but the best chicken you can eat in Playa. It's all fresh daily and they sell out before closing at 10pm.
The locals eat here and when you want a quick casual dinner stop here.

Our absolute must stop eatery in Playa. It is small, hot and extremely busy. BUT..this is one of the places the locals eat (more often than not with takeout). OMG, the chicken is roasted perfectly for hours, the potatoes are cooked with the fat drippings as they are beneath the chickens..awesome. Great rice, salsa and jalelano's ( my favorite). To eat in, there are 10 seats and you are, essentially, in the kitchen so it is hot no matter what time of day. I think that is why the locals do takeout. If you have not stopped here or have avoided for whatever reason...stop and get something to eat. You will not regret it and will be hooked like us.
