About Us

Established in 2013, by the owners of Sardi’s Chicken.

We wanted to start a new “Peruvian” concept, after being involved in the business of Peruvian Pollo a la Brasa with great success!  Let us give you Picca Pollo a la Brasa…a new Peruvian concept that will amaze you in every way possible.

We are not just 2 guys dreaming, we are a group of people who think alike and have our hearts and souls devoted to conquer the palettes of the world with the greatness of the Peruvian kitchen.

Picca Pollo a la Brasa will offer you what no other restaurant has offered you before!
