Restaurant Review: Pio Pio

Pio Pio is a Peruvian restaurant with a focus on rotisserie chicken. They have other sides, too, but it’s mostly about the chicken.

The location we went was a relatively small, cramped space.

Service was meh. Not great.

In regards to food, I had the quarter dark chicken (costs five dollars) and the salchipapa (french fries with cut up hot dogs, cost six dollars). I also ate some of my friends sides. It was okay.

Overall, this isn’t a great place to eat for dinner. It’s a good place for lunch as they have decent lunch specials. If you do want to come here for dinner, you need to bring a few people with you. They don’t really serve things in individual serving sizes and none of the food here is so good that you’ll want to eat a platter of plantains or beans and rice.

Score: 6/10
