This beloved local chain will mark its 30th anniversary next year. Most of its locations are comfortably situated in the ’burbs, but co-founder Jorge Perez opened this D.C. branch with partner Alfredo Izurieta a decade ago. After so many years in the business, their charcoal-chicken game is strong. Smoky, salty, herbal and succulent, the birds almost live up to the name out front. I say almost, because crispiness can be a fleeting thing with pollo a la brasa. Allow a fully cooked chicken to linger under a heat lamp, or sit too long in a holding unit, and its skin is bound to turn flaccid. But if you hit Crisp and Juicy shortly after they’ve pulled birds from the oven, you’re likely to encounter a Peruvian chicken that borders on the ideal.

Crisp & Juicy: Local Restaurant Supporting Shepherd’s Table

The past year has been difficult for the restaurant industry, forcing many businesses to permanently shut their doors. Crisp & Juicy, however, has not been deterred from giving back to the community that’s supported the restaurant throughout the pandemic. In response to a national hunger crisis, the restaurant is donating an entire chicken to Shepherd’s Table with each purchase of a Superbowl Platter. All members of Montgomery County and the DC area are invited to support the project and help feed our neighbors.

Best Peruvian chicken, yuca fries, and hot sauce around. Been coming here for years and customer service and the quality of food are always top-notch!

I give this place a big five stars for great food and positive energy. I will continue to come here every other weekend. Food is very delicious. I visit the silver spring location every weekend and I always get positive attitudes mainly from the cashier and bagger. These two are two young ladies who are hard workers and always have smiles on their faces. The boss has done a well-done job picking his workers.

I have been ordering from Crisp and Juicy for years, and this is the first time I have actually gone into one of their locations. The chicken is even more delicious when it is fresh. I always get a half chicken and split my meal into two. There is always plenty. I love their plantains.
