This was one of those places that everyone suggests you go to for the best chicken and chips in the Algarve. No frills, no ceremony, just really good chicken and chips (or fish or steak or pork). The advise was to arrive early and this...More

Nothing changes in this crazy loud canteen-style chicken n chips place. The food is still great,the noise is still deafening, the queues still form. Great for kids, families, anyone who needs a chicken and chip fix. And the squid is pretty good too. No booking....More

We visit this restaurant every time were in the area. It's speciality is grilled (BBQ) chicken and chips but there are other menu options. Unless you get there early you will have to queue. It's worth the wait as the food is such good value....More

As you would expect 'Chicken Luis' is a very popular place for chicken & chips, which is exactly what we ordered one lunchtime. The couvert was brought to the table first as is traditional In Portugal. Quite quickly our chicken, chips & green salad arrived....More

Fantastic authentic chicken cooked on charcoal and tasting amazing! Family run place with lots of locals and also visitors. Had chicken and liver dishes both of which were cooked to perfection! Will defiantly be going back again and again!

First thing you need to know: this is a basic down to earth food experience. Sharing tables and eating chicken in a nutshell. Very tasty and straight from the charcoal grill that you pass on the way in. There are other options on the menu...More

We were a party of nine, family visiting while on holiday. The food, as ever was well presented. Half a chicken, fries and salad for €4.50. This is still one of the best places for piri-piri chicken in the area. Couvert, main course, some desserts...More

Sorry for the delay in responding. They don't take reservations. Even with a pretty long line outside, it moves fast --longer wait for large parties, but everyone sits at long tables, often next to people they don't know... More

I cannot believe no one has reviewed this restaurant. The cheapest, most reliable, best service grill restaurant in Sao Bras - always busy and lots of fresh fish for us non meat eaters. Chicken and chips is 4 euros - beat that!
