The chicken is always tasty & well-cooked. We love the french fries, too. We have gone there frequently for about 10 years since a friend recommended it. We always carry out are food - so no comment on the service.

I would call this a 'hole in the wall', but it has a rather large dining area. Sparsely, but colorfully decorated. They have a very tasty Peruvian chicken and a few sides. That's it. The chicken is better than the Peruvian chicken place I reviewed...More

Lovely Peruvian chicken and sides. A small Arlington spot, out of the way but the chicken with green sauce is everything.
