Great chicken, full of flavor, and this place is so cheap! I love it.

Just walked in for the first time the other nite, thinking it's just another ethnic fastfood place. Totally not! The menu may look expensive for the neighborhood, but it's family style, and they gave us so much food! The chicken is absolutely to die for. The ceviche is one of the best in town. Plus I never saw so much food for an appertizer. We have to pack half of our chicken home, and that lasted 2 more meals. Service is great and very friendly. Saw lots of regulars here on weekends. Remember they only take AE card. Definitely would go back. I hope people will come here enough to keep this place in business, but not too busy to have to wait for a table. :)

Really great chicken, and it seems expensive, but the matador combo easily feeds 3, so basically the more people you go with the cheaper it gets. Good sangria too.

I live right in the neighborhood and have been to pio pio several times, and always make it a point to bring out-of-town guests there. The sangria and chicken are amazing, as well as the calamari, rice and beans, etc., and you cannot get a better deal than the lunch special. The place is very small and crowded on weekends and you often have to wait to get a table, but it is well worth it!

I now make it my business to reserve a table every friday after work.

I have been going to Pio Pio's for four years. (There is another in Queens). I live in California and whenever I am in NY I insist on a trip to Pio Pio's. My husband prefers take-out as it is always very busy there. I find the food to be excellent, the chicken very tasty and the salads are beautiful. My favorite has to be "ahee" the green pepper sauce. I actually bring a quart of the lovely green sauce home with me on the airplane in my carry on. My husband laughs at me, he's Peruvian, he says I eat it like soup! I could!

Congratulations, I have no real complaint about Pio Pio. The only aspect that I would improve is the size of the restaurant. It is a bit tight inside, due to the great number of custormers on weekends and afternoon from monday through friday....thank you. I drive all the way from Jersey (1hr drive) that's how good Pio, Pio is...
