    Rotisserie chicken half is the best deal. The chicken is actually rotated on charcoal.

    The chicken is delicious! I usually order the half-chicken dinner and usually bring half of it home for the next day. Servers are attentive!

    This charming Colombian spot serves terrific meat at affordable prices. Charred just short of burnt, the chicken is tear-off-the-bone tender, and comes with an awesome chimichurri. Read more
