Since 1971 they’ve been enticing customers with their ancient Guatemalan recipe blend of spices to produce a unique, juicy, crispy chicken. New to the Washington Corridor, this chicken Mecca not only offers their special chicken but also has empanadas, pork, steak, carnitas specialties, salads, sandwiches and more. And from the look of the lines, no one is having a problem in finding something that fits their appetite. Seeing as how they are named after their famous Pollo Campero we had to try that for sure along with their chicken tomatillo taco. The pollo campero fried is their world-famous hand-breaded and fried chicken with their blend of traditional Latin flavor. In my to-go container came a breast and wing with chips and rice and beans. This combo comes with two sides and you can opt to order a leg and thigh or 2 legs and I thigh as well. Should you be on a diet, they offer a Peruvian grilled chicken citrus marinated and grilled to perfection. One bite an it’s easy to see why they are famous for their chicken. It’s crispy, juicy with a flavorful spice blend that wasn’t overwhelming but addicting. The chicken tomatillo taco on the other hand is a regular-sized taco, hence their taco trio combo because you can eat more than just one. Peruvian-style grilled chicken, green tomatillo, panela cheese, red onions and an avocado sauce are wrapped in a corn tortilla. It was very light, tasty and I could have had three of those alone! To dress up your tacos, chips or chicken, check out their salsas with varying degrees of spice. Plus, don’t miss the beverage bar with aguas de horchatas, tamarindo y Jamaica, all traditional Latin drinks.
