If there is a master list of the best takeout options in Durham, Alpaca would have to be in it. The food is just incredibly juicy and well seasoned. Prices are very reasonable. They do catering which I can also vouch for their professionalism and quality.

I was in town with my 2 year old and sister for the day and we just happened upon Alpaca. It was surprisingly great! I had the chicken tacos and my sister had the 1/4 pound meal with plaintains. It was excellent! My only complaint is that the parking lot is extremely tight! There was lots of backing up and waiting and letting people out. But that has zero to do with Alpaca, the food and the service. What a nice little surprise!

A great chicken restaurant at a very affordable price point. The staff is cordial and authentic. The meat is succulent, nicely cooked, and has charcoal/smoky aroma to it. The sides are cool, but could have more flavor and character. I will definitely be returning.

Will only give you a plate if you ask for a plate, otherwise you will eat off the metal tray they give you. The chicken is good and the sauces are pretty decent. Little high priced for chicken ($21.99) for a small rotisserie but good for a young couple who are comfortable with each other and don't mind looking sloppy in front of each other.

This place was a wonderful surprise. The chicken is grilled and you can really taste the Mojo they marinate it in. The fried sweet bananas are great, but the tostones are hard, bland and taste frozen. That is really the ONLY thing we didn't like about it. EVERYTHING ELSE WAS AMAZING!!! We will definitely being going back soon.

Everything was very good. Chicken was tasty and coked perfectly. Green beans were excellent. Will definitely be back if ever near an Alpaca again. I will also definitely be looking to copy the chicken myself. Also do not forget to get some of the spicy green sauce for the chicken. I forgot but tasted it afterwards and it was very good.
