Chicken on the Run

Peruvian chicken to go.

From February 2005 Dirt Cheap Eats

Bethesda families love this place, which serves crispy-skinned, well-spiced Peruvian chicken. The "fiesta for four" ($19.99) comes with a whole chicken plus four sides. Our favorites are the fresh coleslaw, black beans and rice, and brightly flavored salsa fresca. To really economize, you can get the "chop chop" ($6.50), a hearty mess of pulled chicken, black beans, and salsa on a bed of rice. The six tables don't leave much room for relaxing, so most take their meals home.
