Pollo Dorado

Tasty crispy-skinned chicken. Hot corn tortillas. Refried beans and rice. Salsa bar.

We got there at about 4pm on a Sunday, and we were the only ones there. But for some reason, they must have had 20 chickens splayed-out over the grill. They cook the chicken spread-out over fire, like El Pollo Loco. It’s not roasted on a spit like Zankou or Al Wazir.

So the breast is dry. The dark meat is moist, though. But what makes it delicious is the crispy skin. I actually don’t mind a breast that’s a little dry as long as the skin is well-seasoned and crispy. And when you put it into a tortilla with some refried beans and a little salsa…voila, you’ve got a bite that’s hard to beat.

I think the half chicken was $7.95 and the quarter chicken was about $4.95. We got a half chicken to share, but were still hungry so we got another quarter chicken. It’s more expensive that way, but we didn’t end up with too much food, and the second quarter chicken was hot when we started eating it.
