Pio Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken Ratings and Reviews
Really great entrees! Our appies were kinda bland, but the dips made them worth it (we had the plantains with feta - but I actually didn't even notice any feta. We also had the yuca Frita. They were kind of a disappointment compared to the ones I'd had before in San Francisco-here they were bland, but again the dips were good.
The entrees made up for any disappointment with the appies!! Sooooooo yummy. I had a bit left over too and the leftovers were even better - allowing the flavours to soak into the meat and potatoes a bit more.
If you like starchy comfort foods, you'll love this place.
Not a huge wine list (1 white or 1 red to choose from) and the red was served cold. But it was reasonably priced!
Service was friendly:)
I'd go again!
Unassuming from the outside; very clean; knowledgeable friendly server who was there when needed; fast service; hot food & well presented. We've not had Peruvian food before and it would seem that this family owned establishment took great pride in their business and satisfying their clientele. We plan on returning!
Great reviews, so we eagerly gave it a try. It surpassed expectations in many ways. First, I expected a dumpy cafeteria-style dining experience. It is not that. Not only is there table service, it is charming and attentive. I expected mainly chicken on the menu. While there is chicken, and it is extraordinary, there is more, and it is nuanced and interesting. The ceviche is fresh and light and perfectly seasoned. The home cut fried potatoes are crisp and non-oily and a perfect counterpoint to the roasted chicken, accompanied by a choice of 2 flavourful sauces. The service was personable and passionate, conveying a true belief that this is wonderful food, which is no lie. We expected dismal atmosphere and instead found a lively, warm space filled with happy families eating delicious meals. The price is right, the flavours are right, the service is right, the freshness is right. They got it right! I'm an instant convert and will be back, every tiime I can manage it. It's one of those places that become the landscape of your dining life, a constant, reliable, homestyle joint you crave and retern to, and it's going to satisfy and please and delight, because it's just great, real food that you want to eat often. This place is a winner!
The location of this restaurant may not encourage people to give it a try, but it is truly worth your while to go. We've been to Pio numerous times and have never been let down. When I think of chicken, Pio immediately comes to mind. The staff is extremely friendly and you get tremendous value for the cost. I've shared the experience with clients, friends and family and they, in turn, are continuing to spread the word. While their chicken is exceptional, my husband and I actually have tried some other dishes and have not been disappointed. Can't say enough good things about Pio!
We had a fabulous experience at Pio this weekend. We were met by friendly, energetic staff at the door and seated promptly. The staff explained the food choices and had all the answers to our questions. We had the signature corn/pineapple drink and enjoyed it very much. The chicken was outstanding. For dessert we had the flan which was perfect and the sweet potato doughnuts. The doughnuts were tasty but there were way to many to finish. We will definitely be returning and bringing our friends.
Our first time eating Peruvian. Nice treat. Service attentive and informative. It's in a strip mall so don't expect tablecloths and romantic ambiance. Expect well prepared and tasty food. Try the offerings, including drinks flagged with the Peruvian 'toque '.
After my meal, it really made me want to visit Peru to compare because it tasted what I would imagine being in Peru would be.
The chicken was tender, succulent, and well seasoned. Pairing it with cassava fries was ingenious.
Ceviche was fresh and you have to get it in spicy. Plantains to snack in are always good.
This is a small restaurant in a mall in NE Calgary. We had a lovely experience starting with the warm greeting from (presumably) the owner, to the friendly service, to the patient explanations of unfamiliar menu items. I think we were the only people there who didn't speak Spanish, which says a lot! There are dishes here I'd never had before. The food was delicious, generously portioned and reasonably priced. An enjoyable evening all around.
