Don Alex Restaurant

Reviewed By 571bradp

Don Alex is an unassuming Peruvian chicken restaurant in Rego Park, Queens. White tablecloths and an elegant setting await diners but the real treat here is the chicken...it's perfection. Marinated in spices and rotisserie roasted to perfection, this chicken is an elevated expression of a modest bird. Paired with the green sauce, it's an instant classic. Sides are good too especially the salad...and the odd (yet good) French fries with cut up hot dog. If you're in the area, DO stop in. Oh, and they deliver too.

I ordered the 1/2 Peruvian Style chicken with yellow rice and black beans to go from the counter. Service was super fast but the chicken - compared with other Peruvian Style chicken I've had at other locations - was merely passable. It wasn't particularly juicy or flavourful - and the white meat was actually pretty dry , the rice was rather gummy and the beans were swimming in water -straight from the can? You can't really complain when a passable dinner is only about 10$ - but maybe for 15$ they could have done something to make you WANT to come back? It seemed like there was no effort coming from the kitchen - make something halfway decent and maybe they'll come back since there aren't that many other options in the immediate area - seemed the philosophy. In fact there ARE other options so they need to get their game up .

My husband and I are in search of a Peruvian restaurant in Queens that has both great food and attentive customer service. Our search continues after visiting this small, restaurant in Forest Hills, Queens. My husband reports that the rotisserie chicken was moist and flavorful; the portion was smaller than we are accustomed to. The yellow rice and beans were yummy especially when the green spicy sauce was drizzled over them.Tostones were crisp and satisfying, accompined by a lemony, slightly spicy dipping sauce. I was disspaionted with the ceviche mixto; the portion was small and there were too many red onions and not enough fish. Oh and service was OK, I mention this because others have reported subpar service and customer service impacts my diniing experience.

It's been around since 1931, probably before Beverly blvd was paved, and has been dishing out huge portions ever since. The drinks are also heavy pours, god bless'em. But the best part is the atmosphere. Several different rooms to choose from, or eat in the bar, which is always great people watching.

A small tapas restaurant. While the entrees are very good, I prefer to order multiple different tapas to share with my tablemates - so many different flavors to taste. Great presentation.The staff is friendly and even strangers at the bar share tastes. We've come many times.

For the first time in the 3 years I have been dining there, I after write this bad review. Stopped there last sunday for brunch....ordered the spaghetti carbonara....which is my personal favorite on the menu. I couldn't finish it which was a first. Got home and proceeded to get violently sick for close to 24hrs and it was close to 3 days before I could keep any food in my body.......

The natural orange juice is delicious and so are the empanadas. They have a variety of flavors to choose from. The downside is that they are a bit pricy and had items listed in their menu which they did not have at the cafe. Other than that, it was a great experience.

My entire dining experience was fantastic! The ambiance to the excellent customer service & scrumptious food I must say this restaurant is A1. Our server Diego was truly the personification of class & professionalism, nothing was to big a task and his dining choices were on point! I had the red snapper which was nothing short of delicious along with the turmeric rice and black beans, I also tried the steak which was . Would I return definitely, would I recommend ABSOLUTELY!!
