I went to the location on Davis dr in Durham. Nice staff easy to find but they are super slow. It took them 15-20mins to prepare my order i called ahead and paid over the phone as they opened. This is the slowest out of all of their stores. I ordered 2 piece dark with green beans white rice and a side of coleslaw.

The chicken is perfectly cooked, juicy, and delicious. The maduros (fried banana) are sweet and balanced. I’ve been a bunch of times and the quality is there every time. If you enjoy chicken you need to check out this place!

I got the Lomo Saltado and a side of Yuca Fries and the Chi Cha house-made drink. It was very delicious and the staff member I spoke with was very nice and professional. I appreciate the casual atmosphere at all their locations and the Peruvian music/decor.

Food is always good. Service is always fast. Small location and limited parking.

Stopped by for lunch at this Alpaca for the first time. I would usually order the chicken when I visit other Alpaca, but this time I ordered the Peruvian fried rice (arroz chauva). The food was good and it also came with a salad and dressing. However given that it is a bit more expensive and the portion not as big as the regular chicken I get, I am not sure if I would order this again. I think I’ll stick with the rotisserie chicken. The staff members were friendly and the restaurant is also clean.

Better than I remembered. Used to eat here frequently when we lived in Durham. Prices back then (2018) were much lower, and I always felt Alpaca was more about the value than the flavor. Eating here in August 2022 I am pleasantly surprised with how delicious it is, especially the chicken and the green beans. Will be back.

The food is spectacular! The flavors are amazing! We had the chicken breasts, black beans and rice along with the green beans and sweet plantains! My favorite stop when traveling on I85 from Charlotte NC to Virginia.

The food is delicious here! And the service was good. Definitely a must try if you like chicken and fries. They have quarter pound and half pound servings available of white and dark chicken. Recommend trying the green sauce too!

After many visits to Peru and Cusco, it's truly a pleasure to enjoy great Peruvian style dishes in the United States. Frankly, the Peruvian styled rotisserie chicken is probably one of the best chicken dishes in the world. Alpaca does a great job of matching the taste and style of the restaurants and great cooks in Peru. Couple this with the authentic sides (and American styled sides) and you have a great Peruvian meal lined up.

Consistently delicious across every location and you can order online. This location can get kinda crowded in the parking lot but that's not their fault.

Food was good. Customer service was amazing. I especially loved the way they engaged with my child. They treated him as if he was his own customer which made him feel special. Highly recommend!

Charcoal rotisserie? Well, sign me up! This local hot spot fills up quick for a reasonably priced and hearty lunch. Before you even enter you are hit with waves of roasting meat and charcoal aromas. The sides were all okay, but nothing I can celebrate in a review. The true hero is the chicken and it is a true marvel worth stopping for.
