I decided to make a specific trip out to Chicken + Whisky during covid for take out and was disappointed. The chicken( leg and thaigh) were so small it looked like pigeon. The kid cutting the bird looked embarressed to be serving it but he did not say anything. Normally I would have walked out and gone somewhere else, but im trying to limit my covid exposure, so I took it. They should give the customer an extra piece of chicken if it is small or go to Costco and buy some normal sized chicken and send the mal-nourished bird back to the purveyor. The rice and bacon side dish was excellent, the yuka is the best I've ever had ( thought I tasted lemon and spice on the yuka..really good. But I had to order Chipotle after finishing this flimsy meal.
I have been to Chicken + Whiskey a few times before the pandemic and always loved the food. It's essentially counter order where the food is prepared and handled right in front of you. And again, the food is GOOD. Often times I would stick around to enjoy the bar in the back, because what a fun little treat after your meal. Seriously the front and the back feel like night and day. But alas, the inside is closed right now so I stopped by to order food to go from outside. There was an area to stand and wait for your food, but not to sit down or get comfortable (but that's ok cause... germs). The person taking the orders was able to get the drinks prepared right away (semi prepared, it was pre made and stored in a fridge) and it was only a short wait for the food. I had thee most delicious burrito in my life. I love plantains and never thought to put it in my burrito - but yes! And the margarita was spicy! But like tolerable spicy, in a good way. Super pleased and can't wait to come again!
My experience has been an fascinating one.. It started off decent and went to great and I'm very thankful for it! Charles aka Chuck the restaurant owner and his staff made up for a messed up order. This is a clean and safe place to grab some wonderful food and drinks if needed. As a ex-restaurant manager I know a thing a too about building a strong team, safety, and bomb food options. And they are somewhere I would go back in to the business with and for.
LOVE THIS PLACE. My boyfriend and I come here often. He gets a wrap while I get a dark meat platter with plantains and yuca fries. Everything is delicious and cheap and service is always friendly. Don't skip out on the sauces!!
Nice place with healthy and good peruvian food (I can tell you because I have lived there), borracho wrap is my favorite. Great people working there, nice and helpful. They also have a good bar with amazing "tragos". Waiting for the reopening of the back area with music and cocktails , really cool like an old "speakeasy". Also if you have any question, you can use their google chat and they answer in seconds!
This place is so good. We get delivery from here maybe twice a month. The chicken is excellent and has always been juicy and flavorful! We typically get the whole chicken with four sides, which is more than enough for two meals between two people. The yucca fries, plantains and plantain chips are all really good. I also really love their dipping sauces that are included with the chicken! The yellow one is a little creamy with a kick to it. Go here!
I LOVE this place ! Food is great customer service is even better ! Mustafa was the manager working at the time, and he was so lovely! Great energy would definitely be back.
absolutely the best food for any time of day!
Sadly, I have to resolve to never go here again. Good food, but they did a terrible job implementing safety protocols for the pandemic. Do not go here if you value health and safety.I ordered pick up on the phone. I get to the restaurant to see the bartender hanging out with three clearly drunk maskless people (violation of phase 2 rules). I proceed to go in to pick up my food and they make me wait ten minutes after the website said it was ready. In the meantime, more and more people come in and crowd around the register. I had to yell for everyone to back up and stand on the clear 6 ft X marks on the ground.
Chicken is awesome! The side dishes are great too.
They sent over dinner for the entire GW Emergency Department in support of healthcare workers and the food was AMAZING!! Great food AND great people people. Thank you!!!
For Yelp's Big Night In, we ordered delivery from here since we've seen it a lot of times but never tried it. I got the Borracho Wrap, which was absolutely amazing! My boyfriend enjoyed the Mac n'Queso, but said that it definitely was not the best Peruvian food. We shared a side of Yuca fries and the price is not worth the amount of fries you get. Im not sure I'll be ordering from them again, but I might just for the wrap.
Chicken + Whiskey has become a fixture of our takeout rotation! They offer delicious South American style rotisserie chicken and sides (plantains, salads, rice and beans, yuca fries) at reasonable prices. The portions are a good size for the price and they are open for takeout or delivery 7 days a week! In addition to this they also have curbside cocktails to-go. Chicken + Whiskey is also partnering with Off Their Plate to provide meals to healthcare workers. Great all-around food and drinks and well worth the price!
This is the first time I tried Yucca and didn't spit it out. These folks really know how to work with yucca, but I would still prefer a good ole potato french fry. Drinks were both great and strong af. The chicken and plantains were mauled. Will definitely return when I am back in the area!
Had the Pollo Frito with both side sauces today. This was hands down the best sandwich I've ever eaten in my life. I look forward to trying other menu items very soon. Don't pass this place up!
