Serving the Best Pollo a la Brasa Since 1996.
El Gordo Restaurant is more than a unique dining experience; it’s a family experience. After 15 years in business, the Armero family stands strong as a pioneer in bringing authentic Peruvian cuisine to the tables of multi-cultural families across the Paterson/Passaic area.
The spices, ingredients and love put into our food makes everything on our menu authentic. Don’t believe us, just try some of our customer favorites like Pollo a la Brasa or Lomo Saltado (and don’t forget to have the green sauce on the side, we’re notorious for it).
Exceptional dishes, outstanding quality, and impeccable service hones in on the pillars of why we’re still here serving our community and allowing the masses to experience what real Peruvian cuisine tastes like.
So pull up your chair, have a Chicha Morada and enjoy the delicious flavors of our Peru.
