We've been to Palacio del Pollo several times and enjoy the food there. Your best bet is their chicken (available only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), cooked to perfection and very tasty. The best beef option we've tried is the bistec, NOT the baby churrasco....More

My wife and I have been to "El Palacio" twice, and we have both remarked at how good the food was. We know nothing about Peruvian food, but everything we have tasted has been great. The rotisserie chicken absolutely puts Boston Market to shame. We've...More
