Pollo Campero Restaurant Review

: Located on the outskirts of The Brickyard Mall, this fast food spot is giving the Colonel a run for his money. Inside, shimmy-worthy Latin tunes are cranked, and a salsa bar with roasted chipotle and molcajete verde salsas, limes, cilantro, chopped onions and zingy jalapeños serves as ground zero for topping spicy fried birds, which regulars lovingly tear from the bone and wrap in warm corn tortillas. Sides are out of the ordinary, too. Be sure to try the sweet, caramelized plantains, cilantro- and bacon-flecked pinto beans and Campero rice. Although they’re hardly the main event, flan and tres leches cake offer a sweet enough finish. Also located at 4830 N. Pulaski Rd. in the Albany Park neighborhood.
