Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken

I was wondering if you could help me find a good place for Peruvian rotisserie chicken. Back when I lived in DC, we had this place El Pollo Rico in Wheaton, MD, where basically all they made was this amazing wood-fired rotisserie chicken that they would serve with plain steamed corn tortillas, a garlicky mayo, and salsa verde. You could smell the smoky deliciousness from blocks away and there was always a line out the door of this super hole-in-the-wall. A bottle of Jarritos and a half chicken with sides was one of my top ten go-to meals to hit the spot. Is there anything like this in or around Boston? El Pollo Rico spawned 4 or 5 competitors in the DC area with nearly identical menus (including a place right next door), none of which rivaled the quality of the original. I would drive up to an hour to have something even similar.
