Pollo Campero (Bailey's X-Roads) What Happened?

Mike | Jul 20, 2005 08:07 AM

When this place first opened, it was always crowded. After a while it became possible to get in for lunch around 2 o'clock and I'd do that a couple of times a month. The chicken was always juicy with a crisp skin, portions were generous, and if I came at the right time, eating wasn't a hassle.

Yesterday I was in the mood and went there about 1:45 expecting the usual moderate lunch crowd. The parking lot was practically empty! While the chicken was still tasty, the portion was about half the size it had been, a tiny leg (if it was an apetizer it would be called a "drumette") and I've seen babies with a bigger hand than the thigh piece.

I would have gone to Flavors but that's always too much to eat for lunch and I don't care for leftover fried chicken. Oh, well.

Next time Crisp and Juicy.
