Our Process

Our authentic Peruvian chicken restaurants are full of people with a passion for service, flavorful food, and community. Food preparation begins at 6:00 am, five hours before our locations open! Why are we prepping so early? Because cooking fresh and authentic food takes time, so we can cultivate the flavors our customers love. Our chicken is marinated with a family recipe, and slow-roasted on a rotating spit over an open fire burning charcoal oven. While we’re busy cooking, you can begin ordering as soon as our doors open. You can order in the store, online, or on our app. Enjoy your food in our chicken restaurants or grab take-out for days on the go.
