    55555 by tiffany

  • Thomas GToll gegessen, nettes Personal, komme gerne wieder!

    55555 by Thomas G

  • Elaine L.Portions are a tad on the smaller side, be prepared to order more! Rotisserie chicken is an obvious choice - get dark meat, you won't regret it. Ceviche was surprisingly pleasant.

    55555 by Elaine L.

    55555 by Rocio J

  • David U.Great chicken, Mac and Cheese plate is bomb. Mint XI drink is great! Sangria is too watered down and the service is horrible...

    55555 by David U.

  • Pacific Union InternationalLimon Rotisserie's chicken is worth the drive down South Van Ness. Make sure to get a pitcher of Sangria to complete the experience!

    55555 by Pacific Union International

  • Mario S.The rotisserie is one of the best in the city. Try the chicharron de pollo; crispier, a tad more fried and just the right amount of juicy. Also, the yuca fries and the sauces they come with. Yum.

    55555 by Mario S.

    55555 by Adam

  • Renee L.Don't eat here! This place use to be good but has really gone downhill. Everything was kind of bland and don't get that Inca Cola crap they try to push. Better luck at Lolinda or even Popeyes Chicken.

    22222 by Renee L.

  • Kris V.Try the Chicharron de pollo - #kvpinmybelly : Crispy #chicken pieces marinated in garlic, aji and soy sauce. Served with a tangy sauce. Yum! Feels like a meal on its own. (via @Foodspotting)

  • MichelleMango Lemonade, Truffle Mac and Cheese, Red Snapper Ceviche, Half Rotisserie Chicken

    55555 by Michelle

  • Sasha V.The pisco sours were way too sweet and made from a pre-made mix. Sangria was also pre-made. Ceviche had potential but it was too spicy for my taste. Looks like I should have gone with the chicken.

    33333 by Sasha V.

  • Shane C.They have food

    55555 by Shane C.
