“Great!!!!!!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Stumbled across this place and was intrigued. Took a look at menu and like what I saw. Very friendly staff and eager to tell me what they have and how it was prepared. Chicken is very flavorful and quite delicious. Plantains were above average. Hot sauce is very, very tasty. Although the chicken has enough good flavor and it doesn't need it. Empanada was good as well. This place is definitely a place worth seeking. If you get tired of seafood, head over to this place. You won't be disappointed.

“Wonderful family meal”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Chicken was very tasty and moist - with spicy, crispy skin. Don't miss the free garlicky chimichurri condiment. Yucca fries were the best I've had - light, airy and not at all greasy. Black beans and rice were also good sides. 20 bucks for a whole chicken and three sides - that's 5 bucks apiece for a family of four.

Skip the Inca Cola - bubblegum flavored high fructose corn syrup soda with an unholy color.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place in Calabash. It's a welcome, inexpensive addition to the area. We'll be back.

“Good chicken - pricey for Calabash.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you are in Calabash and don't want fried seafood - check out this place. Next to the famous Creamery, it's a prime spot. It's a little expensive for chicken in calabash - and the sides are really small for sharing family style. We were there with a party of 8 - one vegetarian who loved their spinach empanada - ordered 2. We had yucca, beans, chicken and desserts. All tasty, but small portions for sharing.
