Cha Cha Chicken Opens in Annapolis

Annapolis, MD (8-14-14) Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides is pleased to welcome Cha Cha Chicken to Annapolis.
Cha Cha Chicken, home of authentic Peruvian charcoal broiled rotisserie chicken, features all natural chicken that is marinated and charcoal broiled every 45 minutes.
“The atmosphere is festive and offers an opportunity to feel like you are in Peru without having to leave the City,” Mayor Pantelides said.
Owners Stefanie & Gennaro DiBenedetto offer a combination of Peruvian and American specialties, affordable prices, and a casual atmosphere for lunch and dinner. “The traditional and seductive flavor of our chicken remains the same as when it was offered in Peru with a marinade formula that took more than 30 years to develop,” Stefanie said.
Cha Cha Chicken, located at 1411-B Forest Drive in Annapolis, also offers jumbo wings, salads, entrees, grilled meat, sandwiches, and tacos.  Cha Cha Chicken is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Friday & Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, call 443-837-6127 or go to
