Our marinated free-range Peruvian style chicken is slowly roasted over a mesquite charcoal open flame and cooked to perfection! In addition to our signature rotisserie chicken, we serve salchipapas, baby back ribs and authentic style anticuchos just to name a few! All entrees come with two large side dishes of your choice, two liters of soda and aji sauces. We offer a casual dining experience conveniently located in downtown San Mateo off of highway 101.
