Houston Press' Description
When this fried chicken franchise first opened, people waited in line for five hours to get in. What's drawing the crowds is the yearning for a taste of home. For Houston's 115,000 Central American residents, Pollo Campero conjures up intense memories. The chain's trademark, a chicken in a cowboy hat, is part of Latin American pop culture -- he even appears in a cartoon show for kids. Oh, yeah, the chicken isn't bad either. It's moist, tender and amazingly grease-free.
Tips from foursquare
Great fried chicken, always fresh. Service is amazing- definitely not your standard fast food place.
Try it. The South American taste will surprise you. Avoid the Saturday lunch crowd.
Peruvian Grilled Citrus chicken - super delicious and it's not greasy. Yum yum.
Yummy horchata and other Latin beverages!
