About

We first opened in 1994 in Rego Park, Queens, and have since added more locations there are four in Manhattan, three in Queens, one in the Bronx and NOW Brooklyn. At our Hell's Kitchen, Upper West Side, and Jackson Heights locations, we have expanded the menu beyond our hallmark rotisserie chicken & our famous green sauce, rice & beans, avocado salad, plantains, and sangria to include Chinese-Peruvian stir fry, fresh fish, an array of ceviches, and fresh juice pisco cockails. We hope you'll take some time to explore our website, and afterwards as hunger sets in that you'll visit Pio Pio to experience the food.

 
 

Dishing out "huge portions" of "juicy" rotisserie chicken with "addicting" green sauce, these "no-frills" Peruvians prove you can indulge in a "satisfying" meal without "breaking the bank"; some warn service might be "rushed" and noise levels "outrageous", but they're "fun with a group" and "family-friendly" to boot.

"The excellent Peruvian rotisserie birds ... are marinated for twelve hours in a mixture of cumin, garlic, Peruvian beer, and a few other key ingredients the owners prefer to keep a trade secret. Ponder these mystery spices over a pisco sour and a "matador combo," a whole chicken with a tableful of sides."

"The white tablecloths, colorfully chic interior and attentive waitstaff may make you hesitate to eat with your hands. it would be a real shame to miss a single scrap of the excellent rotisserie chicken, so if you are too shy to gnaw a drumstick in public, get your overflowing, affordable platter to go."


Pio pio is absolutely amazing! I've been coming here for over 8 years. They are a great place to eat some delicious chicken. Their sangria and pisco sours are amazing.

We, my husband and I love to eat in Pio Pio Restaurants specially in this Pio Pio Restaurant at 604 10th venue (43rd & 44th Street) New York, it's a very special Restaurant and the food is Excellent !!!

I love this restaurant. All of their food is wonderful, but the rice and beans is so delicious. Most of the dishes are large enough to share with two people. Pio Pio is a great introduction to Peruvian food for me, love it!!
