Has anyone tried Pollo Campero?


Who's been to this joint?

Saw it in Kenner. Never heard of it, but I could clearly tell it was a chain (and clearly a Latin chain).

Easily the second best fast food fried chicken in the area (arguably the best, if you get Popeyes on an off day).

Interesting place.

Have you tried anything else there?

I got two pieces and the campero beans. Really good stuff.

Who the hell knew there was Latin fried chicken?

Had it in Houston a few months ago, thought it was pretty good as well, especially for grilled chicken.

Is this the same place they have at downtown Disney? If so I thought it was pretty good. Something different than the typical strips, fries, and sauce. Really liked the plantains.

If you guys really want some good, cheap, fried chicken, yall should try one of the Brothers food marts. Imo they have the best in the area.

Brothers is solid. This Latin place is a bit better.

I stopped yesterday at one in the east and got a Chicken fried Kabob.

It was pretty good, was sausage and chicken and onions and peppers on a kabob and then fried. For $2.

I would eat that again. I like their batter.
