Pollo Campero Restaurant Review

: This fab 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 jalape├▒os serves as ground zero for topping spicy fried birds, which regulars lovingly tear from the bone and wrap in warm corn tortillas. If you're in the mood for something a bit lighter, try the citrus-infused grilled chicken. Sides are out of the ordinary too. Be sure to try the sweet, caramelized plantains, cilantro- and bacon-flecked pinto beans and lime-laced Campero coleslaw.
