Reviews for Mama's Chicken

Maybe this is one of those places where the food is no good the later it gets in the day. The chicken was dry, fries were good but plaintains were not fresh. The flavor was ok but you ezpect more from a latino place, In summary, mama’s chicken had no love.

The food I had was excellent (Fajita, No. 8) and the service friendly. The amount of food served was slightly excessive, which in combination with it being so good can be dangerous if you have no self-control (like me). Apart from that I totally recommend this place.

The pollo a la brasa (chicken on a spit) here is one of the best I've tried in Virginia. It's not 'spicy' as in 'hot' (as another reviewer seemed to believe without even trying it). The chicken is cooked with spices, of course (news flash: so is KFC), but they are the kind that give flavor to Peruvian-style chicken. You can ask for the delicious green hot sauce ('ají') in small containers, or use the Peruvian-style mayonnaise. I had the yuca and plantains as full review
