I am so glad we ate at this restaurant. This was one of our favorite meals and it only cost $14 US for 5 of us including soft drinks. Its open air so it can be a bit hot in the summertime. The chicken was so tasty and the sides were great. It sure was a nice departure from all the expensive tourist restaurants!

We arrived around 4 pm and the chicken is stacked up high on the edge of grill.... and so we got ours and it was flavorful but dry and not at all hot or moist. Was disappointed given the other ratings and remarks. It is $70 pesos for 1/2 chicken, rice, pickled onions, tortilla shells, and fresh tomato salsa (see pictures). They have bottled beverages. This was a very inexpensive meal but can’t get past that the chicken is literally sitting out without proper refrigeration or heat temps maintained as would be done in the states. If the chicken had been served hot, or even warm; I might go back. Definitely would not go out of my way for it.

For 70 pesos like 3.50 us you get half a grilled chicken rice marinated red onions and corn tortillas and a drink, very good food taste out of this world chicken you can’t not go while in PDC.
