Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 June 2016 via mobile

Came to this establishment on a hot summer day. I had my pup with me and I wanted to take him where he was welcomed.

We called the restaurant up and asked if he would be welcomed, we did inform them prior to showing up and told them the pup was well behaved.

We arrived and the place was spacious and clean. There were other patrons dining. But we we're seated so we be near them.

The waitress came and took our drink orders and brought a container for my pup so he could have some water. Which was really sweet. Along with some corn nuts to dip into a ajin sauce. Gets a bit messy with fingers going in and out.


Ordered the pesto spaghetti which came boiled potatoes, with what I'm assuming is some hollandaise sauce. Personally the potato was extremely bland it was roasted it would of given a better taste texture to it

Also ordered Saltado Pollo which comes with stir-fry onions and tomatoes and French fries this particular restaurant cooks it with dark meat, although I prefer white meat. It was moist and tasty.

The flavors were good. Price was reasonable. Service was efficient.

It's a try!

Since we were on business in San Bernardino for several days we were glad to see this interesting-looking restaurant on Trip Advisor. We stopped in for lunch and our experience mirrored much of what others have said. The food was good, the flavors savory and complex and the presentation attractive. The service though fairly friendly was not very attentive. Our entrees came out several minutes apart and one of the side dishes never showed up at all despite two requests. The server made up for much by offering to give us a to-go container for some of the delicious green hot sauce we raved about.

El Rico Pollo a Peruvian restaurant you should try, is in a strange little strip mall next to and behind La Quinta Hotel and Red Lobster in San Bernardino, called "Diners Court." "Strange" because there are three good ethnic restaurants in this tiny mall.
El Rico Pollo serves Peruvian food in the custom of Lima. As with all food from Peru, corn and potatoes show up in various forms, from free appetizer bowls of toasted corn to cooked sweet potato with the entrees. El Rico Pollo serves civiche, in three different versions. Our mixto civiche was just excellent. Numerous entrees and a good wine list make this a definite place to return to. Very good and friendly service, also.

Good food, nice portions and variety and reasonable prices. However, the service is poor. So if you have an appetite, and can handle poor service,. this is the place to go.l

4 stars for the food. I did not give 5 just because the service is lousy and the person is way too lazy or laid back :) For the food, it is excellent.
