Super Pollo review - Costa Mesa

elmomonster | Nov 23, 200411:41 AM     5

Finally tried Super Pollo this last Saturday. After scarfing down a quarter chicken meal, I still think I prefer Zankou, eventhough this was a pretty decent chicken. But again, this is a different type of cooking. It isn't a rotisserie bird. It is grilled, much like how El Pollo Loco does it, but better than that. You have the option of having it dry, or slathered with a garlic, butter and lemon sauce. This is how we took it. The garlic and butter packs a mighty punch, and gave the bird most of its flavor. The sides were fine, but nothing noteworthy (Spanish rice and refried beans). The meal comes with three sauces, a house-made picante, pico de gallo and a guacamole sauce which seemed toned down with mayo or sour cream.

There is a side effect to eating this chicken though - you will be tasting the garlic and butter sauce every single time you burp for the rest of the day (and you will burp often because of the beans). This may be good or bad depending on how much you liked the chicken.
