  1. I have seen this place...it's a couple of miles from my home. I noticed that this is your first post on the Chowhound board....do you own or have a stake in this restaurant? I'm burning.

    1. "I have" lots of different types.... ????

      I personally have no problem if an owner comes on and says; 'hey CH dudes--- pop by my shop when you're in the area and say hello---- we make killer Peruvian rotiss chicken & other excellent stuff....

      If I had a place I would love the opportuity to do that----- but it gotz to be honest....

      1. I am sorry for the crappy review. I meant to say I had a lot of different ones, in larger cities (miami, new york and other heavily peruvian populated areas) and also in Peru. The chicken is pretty awesome. I also think is consistency, is always fresh not reheated, am never disappointed. The sides are good if not great. The chicken comes with the typical mayonnaise infused hot sauce which is good, you also get a separate sauce a chimichurri like sauce. I havent really tried anything else they make, but its an awesome chicken place.

          LOL!
          Thumbsup!!

          I'll be in Riverview on the 27th...
          I will go there---- and I will order too much!

            Well...now that you put THAT way, I think I must have one of these Peruvian chickens of which you speak for myself. Perhaps I'll stop in for some takeout one evening this week.

          2. It's funny that you mention this place because I actually just wrote a review about it an hour ago. My friend and I ate at Cuenelli's this past weekend. My friend had their Bisteck a lo Pobre (palomilla steak with rice, beans, plantains, french fries and an egg) and I had a Chicken Sandwich and both were excellent. Service was great as well. It's was my friends first time having Peruvian food and now my friend will be coming back for more. My family are regulars here and order to-go all the time. There's more here with some pictures http://bit.ly/aPp8fP

              It does sound good. Do you remember if they offered beer and wine, or just soft drinks?

              1. re: sweet_polly

                I'm pretty sure they don't offer any beer, wine, or liquor, just soft drinks, juices, and coffee.

            2. Well, thanks a lot! Now that I've decided I MUST have a Peruvian chicken RIGHT NOW...I swung by the place on my way home from to work only to discover that it's closed on Mondays. I am waaayyy too much of an Instant Gratification Girl for this kind of letdown. And now I have to cook. Grrrr. ;)

                Aw sorry about that, I forgot to mention it here (though I mentioned that in my post). My family finds ourselves wanting Cuenelli's on Mondays too and on numerous times we have forgotten it was closed.
