CLARKSVILLE, IN (April 13, 2022) – Southern Indiana residents have a new dining option with a Peruvian flair. Carali’s hosted a ribbon cutting event at it’s newest location at 703 E Lewis and Clark Parkway in Clarksville. Carali’s serves fresh, hormone-free rotisserie chicken that has never been frozen. The chicken is marinated in a blend of Peruvian spices and cooked in a charcoal rotisserie oven for mouthwatering flavor.
Carali’s is a special restaurant with a special name. The “Ca” is for one of the chain’s co-owners named Carlos, “ra” is for the other co-owner Raphael Dapello. Raphael says the “li” is in honor of his mother Lidia, who passed away years ago, but always pushed for Raphael to open his own rotisserie chicken restaurant. Raphael says the Clarksville location is the sixth Carali’s he has opened, and the first in the Hoosier state.
Clarksville Town Councilman Mike Mustain says he has already eaten at the new restaurant, and that the food is delicious. He wished owner Raphael Dapello the best of luck during today’s ribbon cutting.
“Carali’s will be the stopping place for many in the region heading to Origin Park picnic basket and blankets in tow for a picnic in the park,” said Mustain. “Bienvenido a Clarksville que prosper. (Welcome to Clarksville, may you prosper).”
Also in attendance for the ribbon cutting was Clark County Councilman John Miller. He thanked the owners of Carali’s for investing in Clark County.
“I want to start by welcoming Mr. Dapello and his family to Clarksville. I am ecstatic to see his family business grow and expand into southern Indiana,” said Miller. “I have heard nothing but good things about how great the food is and how welcomed customers felt during their visit. I wish Carali’s and Rafael Dapello nothing but the best of success! Carali’s Rotisserie Chicken is another big win for Clark County residents!”
Carali’s menu includes a variety of appetizers, Pollo a la Brasa, soup, salads, Peruvian inspired dishes, sandwiches, wraps, and delicious sides.
