Peruvian chicken - replacement for El Pollo Rico?

MPJ | Mar 20, 2008 08:49 PM

We live in Germantown (well, not for long, but I digress) and we would regularly drive to Wheaton to get El Pollo Rico chicken. Now that they're closed after the fire, we're clueless as to where to go! We had El Pollo Sabroso with friends, and it was delicious, but it's too far for us to drive for takeout.

Anyone have any suggestions for replacement Peruvian chicken? We're willing to drive to Silver Spring, Wheaton, Bethesda, Rockville, etc. Nothing further south than Chevy Chase Circle, if possible. I know there are a few in VA that people have recommended (Super Pollo, Edy's, the other EPR, etc.), but it's just too far. :(

I've heard good things about Chicken on the Run in Bethesda: http://www.chickenbethesda.com/ but I'm skeptical. It seems too good to be true - fabulous Peruvian chicken a block from my work? Is it true? I looked for reviews on here, but couldn't find much.

Any suggestions/advice is greatly appreciated! Please help this pollo addict get her chicken fix. ;)
