    Tender chicken, great sauces, all sides are delicious but personally a fan of the coleslaw, yucca and plantains, fast service and always clean. I drive to Bethesda just to have it.

    Everything in this place is delicious! I recommend getting the dark meat option (cheaper and more flavorful) with yuca & rice and beans (or plantains)...with an extra mild sauce on the side!

    Pretty good and reasonable chicken options, Try the chop, chop, which is pulled chicken stew over rice with black beans and salad, though salad is practically nothing more than garnish.

    This place makes me miss Bethesda. Get a half chicken if you're ravenous, otherwise a quarter is enough. And get the yuca and pico de gallo as sides.

    Try the Chop Chop...it's pulled chicken + veggie + beans + rice deliciousness! The green sauce is yummy but pretty spicy. Pour the peach colored sauce on top for added creamy-ness!

    Do not get the potato salad unless you like beets. Everything else is amazing!
