Without spending a day on a plane or facing altitude sickness, you can enjoy good, basic Peruvian food. Extensive menu with modest decor. Very generous portions.

My family does take out here often, and I've brought business associates here for lunch. This family-owned place serves excellent regional dishes - and fabulous roasted chicken - pollo a la brasa, Also has Central American favorites such as papusas. (I love the plain cheese ones.)

Fantastic restaurant. My favorite is chicken and prepare and serve it perfectly. Meat is tender and juicy, french fries are delicious and salad is great. I've been a regular for several years, but yesterday was first I visited in 2015. Nothing has changed and I will be returning soon.

Whenever I crave Lomo Saltado, I come here. Also the pork steaks and beans dish is to die for. Is it crazy that I hardly ever get chicken at a place with Pollos in the name? The rotisserie chicken is good too though!

I was craving Peruvian food after a trip there, and came here for dinner with friends. It was nice, homey restaurant- owners were very friendly and food was quite good. The Peruvian specialties were excellent- lomo soltado and aji de gallino. I have been back several times. Large portions and very good food. I recommend that you try it. The... More

Pollos Inka has by far the best roast chicken ever. My wife and I love it, not only for the food, but also the atmosphere. When you walk in, you leave the US and are in Peru. The waits speak minimal English, and the food, and drinks are what you would probably find on a menu in Peru. The food... More

This is my first taste of Peruvian cuisine, and this was great. The salsa was tasty-different than salsa at Mexican places. The Peruvian chicken was amazing, the portions immense. The owners are warm, inclusive and gracious. The prices are fair, too. We'll certainly come back next time we're in the area.

Really enjoyed the beef with onions, Peruvian sauce and tomatoes. Just the right balance of spices. The Tres Leches was good, though I prefer it more liquody. Service was wonderful. Great value. Will come again.

Best Peruvian chicken around. If you havent tried this type of rotisserie chicken, you are missing it. Decor stinks, service is decent, prices low - but food is great.

Weve been several times to this casual family restaurant and enjoyed all the dishes. Large portions. Great papas rellenas, chicken, fried yucca, and more.
