Dallas Observer's Description

Pollo Campero--"country chicken"--is the first Dallas outpost of a Guatemalan fast-food chain that is hugely popular in Central America. (The New York Times reports that Guatemalans often carry boxes and bags full of Pollo Campero victuals on their flights to the United States, filling the plane with the aroma of fried chicken. The chicken is either distributed to homesick relatives or sold by the piece for a profit.) It's the only mass merchant of what it calls "Latin American fried chicken," crispy and coated with adobo seasonings. It's drawing crowds in Dallas now. If you don't mind chicken that still has a few deep-fried pin feathers--the "country" attitude evidently extends to plucking--you'll find the stuff addictive. It's served with white corn tortillas or rolls, plus a few sides--the best was the "Campero beans," fat pintos spiked with strong bacon flavor.

    I LOVE pollo campero! Really. I am Salvadorean and we have Pollo Campero in El Salvador, when we visit its one of the 1st places we visit.. why? well because its good fried chicken! and it tastes nothing like what your used to with KFC, this is real chicken that is juicy and tasty. This place, while not the same as what we have in El Salvador is the best fast food fried chicken in these parts!
