Pollo Campero

5616 Bellaire Blvd

Instead of KFC or Popeyes, try Pollow Campero. Started in Guatemala, this fast food fried chicken joint has spread thoughout Latin America and now the United States. They marinade their chicken and bread it in a way that makes the chicken flavorful, tender and tasty. The fried flavor can best be described as fried in lard--which if you don't know, is a fantastic compliment. The chicken comes out not greasy, but still full of flavor.

You can have your chicken with fries, plantains, or fried rice. The fried rice sucks and the plantains are medioce. Ignore the sides... The real gem here is the chicken. Order the $4 worth of chicken and get gelato at Paciugo's for dessert.

One of my favorite things about reading your blog is your fearlessness. You will write a review on any restaurant or dining establishment. From Arby's to Pollo Campero to Pho Nguyen.

Great blog and if you get a chance, check ours out too.


Thanks! Hank & Andrea

I love Pollo Campero. Its a bit of a drive to get to this place but I make the trek every so often. The chicken is soft and tender and just falls off the bone. Perfect!
