    This place is a hidden gem! $60 bought us a whole rotisserie chicken, a huge plate of yucca fries, a salad & 2 large glasses of wine. A new favorite. Insanely delicious & an incredible value.

  • Bryant B.
    Matador was great although some people might find the hot dogs with fries a bit weird. It will be too much food for two so expect leftovers.
    Bryant Balatbat · February 24, 2015
  • KristiaMarie P.
    Great chicken dinner! Try the green sauce! "Fries and hotdogs" as a side dish was interesting.

    Prepare you stomach empty. The portion is huge. The combination of side dishes including avocado salad and their signature roasted chicken is awesome.

    Whole chicken and avocado salad very good. Service is fast. Only thing was the tv on loud on news and soccer. A nice music will be much better.

    $$, not $$$$. Split a whole chicken for $30 and roll each other home.

    7:15 pm every table occupied. Seating rules unorganized and stinking of favoritism. Service fast and non-verbal.

    Worst service. The waiters are just here for a pay check. After messing up my order twice, I never got an apology and went home hungry

    Chicken is the business, mad real flavor and if you hit the green hot sauce it's sublime! Menu isn't too vast but portions are large so be easy. Prices are great! Enjoy!

    The Peruvian Combo is perfect for two to split. It's just the right amount of food for a great price ($26). A pitcher of sangria will also cost you $26 so beware. Also, they only take cash and Amex. G

    patrick scot · February 28, 2010
  • iza p.
    if you're taking food home, make sure to remind them to pack the sauces/dips as well (especially if you liked them). they won't pack it if you don't ask.
    iza p · February 5, 2010
