You must try Pio Pio! I was there this past Friday, March 30th and loved it. The food is great. I ordered the Matador Combo, while this is the most expensive plate ($26) it serves 3 people...that's a good deal. The service and atmosphere are ok, though. The restaurant is big, but they have filled every corner with a table. This is a bit uncomfortable when you are trying to run to the bathroom; but if you wait to go once you are done and on your way out, you'll be fine and the only ones having the trouble squeezing through are the servers.

Tasty chicken with even better sauce; each item on the menu is a winner...a bit greasy, but it is good.

The new PIO PIO on the UWS is outstanding and much bigger then the UES local.Althought they can't seem to get bring the salad before the meal right, the food is great along with the friendly service. I highly reccomend PIO PIO

I have been on the U.E.S. for 25+ years and prior to Pio Pio the same location, with same food, was called El Pollo. When P.P. showed up after it was a joy to have good chicken back on the table. As of the past few years P.P. has begun to slide in each of the rating criteria. I will continue to eat there from time to time but I am reluctant to praise it so much to others. The strongest request to the owners/employees would be to take time and care about their customers once again. The product will continue to please (when prepared properly) but I feel they have forgotten those of us that have been around from the start and what it is like to be in the service industry.

This place is great and the food is excellent. The take out menu is not a fair representation of the menu that is available in the restaurant. The drinks are strong, the waitstaff is very attentive. The appetizers are not as good as the entrees, at least the 2 times that I went there they were not as good as the excellent entrees. Definitely worth trying. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

...Otherwise I have to concur with the reviewer who said that their chicken (while otherwise delicious) isn't always fully cooked. The Woodhaven location we go to is always maddeningly crowded, there's no place to park, and there's no place to stand while you are waiting for your pickup. I wish there was nearby alternative - any suggestions?

I've been going here with my friends for a while and all of us love it. The seafood platter is huge and you can share it with your friends. The Ceviche is great. And I love the atmosphere of a little whole in the wall. And it's always crowded. You might have to wait 30 to 60 min, but it's worth the wait.
