Fried Chicken Joint on First Avenue in the 90s

Infamy Mar 31, 2007 06:25 PM

I overheard some folks rave about an unassuming place on First Avenue somewhere between 90th and 96th that serves up what they claimed to be "the most excellent" fried chicken. Anyone know what they're talking about and can vouch for the claim? Thanks.

    Sure it wasn't rotisserie chicken?

    Pio Pio is on 1st and 90th. They make amazing Peruvian chicken with an addictive spicy "mystery" sauce.

      I used to live on 1st and 90th. IIRC the place was a peruvian place [Pica Pollo ?] on the east side of 91st and 92. not sure if its still there but chicken was good-nothing special.
