One of the very best Peruvian restaurants around, though it masquerades as mainly a chicken place. The rice dishes here are the real winner, for instance the chaufa is the best in the region. One of the two or three best lomo saltados around. The ceviche is good, but avoid the “spicy sauce,” it is much better plain. Great location, never too crowded, so definitely recommended and while it feels a bit corporate it still has a casual vibe.
Any idea if the other locations (Rockville, Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Potomac, Glenmont) measure up?
When my work sent me to Rockville for SAS training, I would eat at Don Pollo. This was back in 2013/2014. It was highly delish food and I would drive from Old Town once a month after I discovered it.
I’m actually a little surprised it took Tyler so long to find this place.
