Although we had to wait a long time to get a seat, the food was totally worth it. The atmosphere was surprisingly upbeat for a Monday night. The food was simply delicious! Like other reviewers we ended up ordering way too much food for 5 people (a Matador Combo and a large Jalea), but it was great! Their chicken, one of the best I've had; their jalea (seafood platter) was unlike anything else I've tried and I totally recommend it. Have no fear. We had a great time at this place and can't wait to go back. Great for a birthday dinner with friends or family. Place is small, so you'll have to wait, but you'll be glad you went.

We went for my mother birthday a couple of weeks back and the food was sooooo good. We actually ordered to much food, we didnt realize that they gave so much food. We left we a bunch of leftovers. The only thing I didnt like was that they only take American Express there, so i had to go find a atm but that aint important when food is involved.

...that coworkers have taken my leftovers from the fridge. The lunch special is a terrific bargain. The place can get packed and the service a little aloof, however, so make sure you call ahead of time for take-out so you don't have to wait.

Great food but, felt a little rushed to leave. It's small and the tables are close together so it's great atmosphere however, this means they want turnover! Overall, would definitely go back again!!!!

This is definitely one of my favorite places. The food is insanely cheap and the chicken and tostones are awesome. It's also my favorite place for Sangria!!! The Jalea is the only thing that's a bit of a waste. If you try the new location on 94th and Amsterdam, they have a great Seafood salad (Pacifico) as well as a tasty fried rice.

Order from Pio Pio and you will wonder how you ever lived without it. The chicken is amazing but watch out for that green sauce - it may burn your mouth but you may not be able to stop eating it. A whole chicken may be too much - a half chicken should suffice. ALL the sides are delicious too, so go nuts. They are usually so overcrowded in their very small space, that you will probably have to wait. If ordering over the phone be sure to speak clearly (the restaurant is usually so buzzing they may get your order wrong).
