Can anyone recommend a good place to get good Peruvian chicken or similarly cooked chicken? I live in Alexandria but will drive anywhere. I just have a craving for some good chicken!!!
You're Not Far. Arlington Has A Few, On Or Around Leesburg Pike. Best used to be Edy's, but I hear they've declined a bit since moving to a bigger place (don't miss the alfajore cookies). Try them, though, and some other places near there. Also, you're close to

re: Jim Leff
I just had their chicken on Monday night and it was GREAT. We generally go to the Crisp & Juicy in Falls Church, but I decided to try this place instead. The chicken has more flavor and a bit juicier. The only down side is when I ordered beans; I did not get the black beans. I got something that was more like refried beans instead.
I have had really good luck at Crisp and Juicy in Falls Church. I can't say the same for the branch in Rockville.
I'm not entirely certain that it's Peruvian, but there is a chicken place in the little strip mall directly across the street from the Huntington metro on North Kings Highway. There is also a great latino market there...
Pollos Inka in Herndon. With a name like that, it better be good, and it is.
The whole chicken with a salad and a mess of yuca for $11.99 is a great deal.
I recommend Edy's (5240 Leesburg Pike). It's some of the best chicken I've had in ages. The beef is pretty good too. Excellent yucca too.
el pollo rico in wheaton, across wheaton plaza is great, much better than crisp and juicy in rockville.
how can you tell it's good? long lines of hispanic locals during lunch and dinner! cheap too!
