Reviews for Mama's Chicken

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
I didn't realized you were already closed, so I parked on the side of your restaurant. Some crazy old lady employee of yours came out and started yelling at me in some unintelligible language! If this is how you treat your potential customers... you can count me out! I'm not going to spend my hard earned money at an establishment that abuses the customers!' And you, not this wacko employee own the parking lot anyway! If you don't get a grip on your employees... you're full review

I don't like the spot. Every time I come here there's something that leave a bad taste in my experience. Some time they have over-cooked chicharrones, last time it was a undercooked ribs. The rice is plane cheap rice and beans are not well cooked. ;(
