Editorial reviews from the web (2)

The Peruvian chicken is so "finger-lickin' good" that folks are eating it "before they're done paying" at these "bare-bones" counter-serve roasters; indeed, everyone from "Anthony Bourdain" to "three-piece suits to day laborers" raves about the "delicious greasiness" that can be had for just a "few bucks", and since service is "quick", nobody clucks too much about occasional "lines out the door."

El Pollo Rico Restaurant Review

Although this shirt-sleeves comfy place has had many local imitators, none have ever really met its degree of gritty buzz. Packed from opening to closing with the hungry, El Pollo Rico is the place to pick up Peruvian roast chicken with your choice of fries or coleslaw, plus drinks and several Latino sweets. Formerly in cramped quarters in a parking lot behind some office buildings, EPR now...

The chicken is so incredibly juicy and rich in flavor, and even the fries and cole slaw are quite good. But no yucca? It'd be nice is they expanded the menu a little bit.

I have been carrying out from Pollo Rico for many years as I live close by in the neighborhood. The chicken is delicious, the steak fries get stolen from me by family members and the cole slaw is cold and crunchy. The line may be...

The best Peruvian Chicken

My friend has me hooked on this place, love the Peruvian chicken (although I was skeptical at first). I usually go for the breast/wing combo. Once you try, you are going to love it! They can get very busy, so the parking will be interesting...

The menu is chicken, 1/4 of a chicken, 1/2 of a chicken or a whole chicken! Add a couple sides and that is your meal. However, simplicity of the menu is not to be overlooked, because this is the best chicken anywhere!!! They excel with...

"None of the Peruvian rotisserie places that have cropped up in the area turns out a bird with as much flavor. Tender, juicy, succulent - this is a chicken to rhapsodize over. Ask for extra sauce - both the mayo-yellow mustard and spicy cilantro-lime, which come in tiny plastic containers, are addictive."
