Perhaps the best deal in town belongs to Peru's Chicken. The Chicken Bowl - Marinated, rotisserie, pulled chicken, over rice, beans, sliced tomatoes, onions, with hot sauce in a bowl, for $7. Insanely good! — Agentvipp

My list of new places to eat included Peru's Chicken, at 3050 Valley Avenue, Suite 101, so I headed that way a little after noon on December 17, 2009. I found the restaurant in a corner location in the Opequon Center Business Park, on the east side of Valley Avenue across from the Creekside Business Park.

Peru's is a small Hispanic operation occupying a single module in the building at 3050 Valley. It has eight square tables seating four people apiece, and a small patio with two iron tables out front. Orders are placed at a counter, with the menus displayed on the wall; a paper menu is also available.

The chicken is roasted in a charcoal rotisserie located behind the counter, which includes a preparation area. After placing your order and paying for it, you pick up your plastic tableware and napkin from the counter, select the canned or bottled drink you have paid for from a refrigerator, and sit down to be served.

Choices include 1/4 or 1/2 chicken with two side orders, a whole chicken with or without two sides, and larger orders for multiple diners; these range for a single whole chicken, a whole and half chicken, and two whole chickens.

Side orders are French fries, yucca, coleslaw, plantains, rice, beans, mashed potatoes, salad, and salsa. Beverages are canned or bottled soft drinks, juices, or water. Paying $1.25 for bottled water in a restaurant seems a bit expensive to me.

Chicken sandwiches are available, as are quesadillas and burritos; there are also steak and cheese sandwiches and cheeseburgers. Incidentally, the rotisserie chicken is seasoned with Peruvian spices, giving the establishment its name.

I ordered a half-chicken with white meat, rice, and beans, and a canned Dr. Pepper. The beans were black, and the food was served on a foam plastic plate, delivered on a tray. Two small paper cups of condiments were furnished; one apparently held spicy mustard, and the other looked and tasted like hot green chilies.

The chicken was very good. Diet faddists would probably be shocked to know that I didn't remove the skin, because that's where the Peruvian seasoning was. For a lunch I should have ordered the smaller 1/4 chicken; as it was, I decided that this would be my big meal for the day.

I recognized this place as being the former Marcella Char Broil, also a Hispanic chicken operation. My wife and I had eaten lunch there on May 25, 2008. There appeared to be no significant change in the room layout since then. In fact, the printed menu noted that the place had formerly been Marcella's Chicken.

The restaurant was in a corner location, with entry doors in the front and on the left side. Neither one had a vestibule, which meant that the constant in-and-out traffic let in cold air. This made the room cool enough that I kept my wraps on while I was eating.

Homegrown fast food that ain't "fast food". Multiple visits and deliveries have always left me satisfied. Chicken is consistently flavorful and juicy with the nicely crackly skin that proper roast chicken should proudly display. My personal favorite side is the yuca. A light crispiness like good french fries combined with a fluffy, starchy interior that is refreshingly airier than a spud. The Latin style black beans are a comforting treat, too. The green sauce (aji verde) is a MUST. Spicy, vegetal, and fresh- the perfect accompaniment to the rich fare. The (ample) burrito is another solid option for a quick meal that won't leave you with that queasy feeling like the Golden Arches or the Bell. I'm glad Peru's is cooking when I don't feel like doing it myself! — Anonymous Reviewer

Really enjoy their food. Too sad though that they took my order, knowing my address, and then called 10min later to explain that I was out of their delivery area. Checked and I am only .9miles outside of this area. Really upset to find out they charged my card also. Get with the program Peru's. If you are going to deliver within the city limits, then deliver within the city limits! — Anonymous Reviewer

Peru's frustrates me. Their food is excellent and deserves a 5. Their service is also good. The problem I have with Peru's is that when you order things over delivery it is extremely difficult to get your order, your address, and your credit card number understood. I have had several failed deliveries from them because of this. Twice it was because they couldn't get my card number right. Once it was because they didn't get the address right. This is a great place to eat for EAT IN or PICK UP. Don't order delivery because you may not get it for some reason or another... — Anonymous Reviewer

Excellent burritos. Fresh ingredients and good price. A better (and far less salty) alternative to chipotle any day. — Anonymous Reviewer
