This place is the real deal. The chicken is always tender and each time is like the first time. Plantains are hard to make properly but they do it. Let's just say I've refused to visit commercial chicken joints since I found this place.

I work for a shipping company in Sterling and all of our employees love your chicken. We usually buy from your Sterling Park location and take the carry out. I think we buy more and more each week because the chicken's so tender and tasty. Many of us enjoy the hot green sauce too. I think I go through 3 cups of it between just a quarter chicken and the beans and rice. Good work, guys. We're big fans

Finger-licking good! I tried this place after reading the yelp reviews and I'm glad I did. I ordered a half-bird with black beans and rice for less than $8.
The chicken was very flavorful. The skin was slightly crisp and the meat moist. I like spicy food so I enjoyed the green sauce with the chicken and the rice and black beans. I have eaten Peruvian food once before but I enjoyed this meal much more.
I got my meal to go and it came out quickly and hot. My plan was to make it 2 meals but I couldn't stop after the first quarter. Needless to say this spot is new favorite of mine.

I've gotta be one of the luckiest kids around. I work in Falls Church and a co-worker brings me free El Pollo Rico (friends with a manager). Then I come home and live 2 minutes from something just as delicious.
Now, since I only eat EPR as carryout- 15-20 minutes after it arrives- I might be missing out on some of the crispiness that other people are talking about. As far as flavor, fries (yes, I LIKE the fries) and yellow sauce (I DON'T like spicy), however, they are downright identical.
Best in Sterling.
