Yes. Yes. Yes. My family and I eat here. My office orders lunch from here. You absolutely can't go wrong with this restaurant. The food is sooo fresh, service is awesome.

This place is definitely a hidden gem. The food is delicious and always fresh. I love that I can order and pay online. They seem to be doing a great job keeping up with COVID-19 precautions. I highly recommend the chicken, fries, and street corn.

Delicious food every time! Al Carbon's chicken is leaps and bounds about the rotisserie chickens in the grocery stores. The flavor is consistent and the chicken moist. The side dishes are good as well especially the street corn (whether on or off the cob), fried plantains & mac and cheese. I also appreciate their use of paper-based c ... read more

I really want to read it one star so no one else will go and I don't have to wait in such long lines because it's so yummy. double check to make sure you're getting all the sauces you ordered because they get busy and sometimes that can be overlooked.

Delicious rotisserie chicken and sides. But the tacos are *chef's kiss* amazing.
Sherry Bryant via google.com - Jan 12, 2021
It was really good. The chicken was delightful and we got to try Pork Ribs (which we were told were being added to the menu) - that was rich and savory. The drinks were enjoyable - and I would gladly go back again. I was slightly disappointed that there weren't more Peruvian options - but overall everything was great.

Friendly staff, fresh and delicious food.

Not quite 5 stars but close! My favorite thing was the street corn, that was awesome. The chicken was really good too. I found the tacos to have good filling but the corn tortillas were very dry and sort of ruined my tacos. I'd like to try them again to see if it was a fluke given how good the other food was and everyone else's revie ... read more

Best chicken in C-ville. You owe yourself a visit to this spot. Please keep supporting them through the pandemic so we don't lose another great resteraunt. Their curbside pickup is very clearly covid compliant and quite speedy.
Jim Gaul via google.com - Dec 11, 2020
Great chicken and sides at such a reasonable price! A family meal can feed 3 people and comes with three sides as well! Their plantains are mouthwatering and the jicama fries, cactus, and green rice are also a must-try! Also, my friend has a lot of allergies but she can eat most things here which is also great ... read more

Good tacos! Fast service! Clean restaurant! I recommend the Al Pastor tacos and their rotisserie chicken. Nice and juicy! Picking up your order inside was a bit confusing but overall a good restaurant for those late night taco cravings.

Awesome food, their chicken was delicious and their sweet sauce was crazy good. They also make really good pork tacos and yummy yellow rice. Plus their staff was friendly. Great experience.

Wow! Exceeded expectations. Covid compliant with a cool, hands free thermometer. Very good service and excellent food. Great value! Thank you!

Delicious sandwich - worth the 10 minute wait. Lots of space to spread out in the waiting area too which was nice here during COVID.

Absolutely Delicious Chicken & Plantains
This chicken is absolutely amazing! We live 5 hours away but travel to the Charlottesville area frequently and always stop at Al Carbon. The food speaks for itself!

This is our second time, getting food from Al Carbon and our experiences were spread out a bit. Ordered the family meal (chicken and sides). Also guacamole, choriqueso, and churros. Food is good and made in-house. 6-7 out of 10. Portions are a little meager. 4-5 out of 10. 4 stars instead of 3 because it's a local business. It's g ... read more

This place is one of the best restaurants in Charlottesville. The rotisserie chicken is out this world, and the tacos are amazing.

My partner and I ordered a family menu (la familia), which came with a whole chicken and three sides. We chose street corn, beans, and green rice. Beans were just okay but the corn and rice were really good. The chicken was yummy too, as it was cooked nicely. For sauce, we got aji and chipotle crema- both were not spicy at all but we ... read more

Al Carbon has some of the best food in town. They have a lot of options beyond their chicken (which is delicious). I love their tacos. The staff are helpful and friendly. Great service.

Family meal is a joke! A large side of street corn is one cob. The food is good but their sides are not family sizes. Expensive for what we ordered.
