We love their Rotisserie chicken and Po'Boy beef brisket with sides of creamed spinach and baked beans. 70% or more of their business is "take out".

How do you rate a place that on the surface -- or at least on their website -- sounds like a terrific and different place for BBQ in the Delco area? And a place that you start salivating over during the day because the Mrs. is out of town and you and your son are going to chow down on... More

Their food is delicious. It's not easy to find a Peruvian chicken place in the suburbs, so I was thrilled when I found out about Barbacoa. Don't worry fellow Irish folk, it's flavorful, not spicy hot. You really cannot make a wrong choice between the chicken and other delicious meat options. And the sides - I could eat them all...

Great place for BBQ. Love their ribs. Good sides. One takeout order the ribs had more bone than meat, but I figure that will happen due to the cut of the ribs.

Friendly local spot for very good chicken, ribs, and BBQ. The sides are good and go well with the BBQ. Can't miss the rooster on the roof.

Sat outside on picnic tables. Food is simple but good. Don't be thrown off by their half pound and pound sizes- my 11yr old easily finished the half pound of mac and cheese

Have never ever left a bad review for a restaurant. Unfortunately, we were asked to move from our table after receiving our drinks and being all comfortable with a young child, by the waitress. She was told by the manager to have us move because he had taken a reservation for that specific table. Unfortunately, other than being next to... More

I went to this place with high expectations and overall big cravings of a good "Pollo a la Brasa" (Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken). I was not disappointed at all, the flavour of the chicken was excellent and the "aji" (hot sauce) was very good. It looked like a family run restaurant, service is very friendly and respectful. The prices are fair... More
