Crisp & Juicy Restaurant Review

: The food here is pollo a la brasa, or charbroiled chicken. It's a Latino cooking method that's caught on in a big way here, but these eateries offer more than delicious and crispy chickens: The menu includes Argentinean steaks and sausages in sandwiches, and even trendy Gruyère chicken breast sandwiches. But those in the know will stick to the basics: cut-up chickens sold solo or a chicken platter with two sides. We love the fried yuca and plantains, the most traditional combos with Latino chicken. You can buy and eat plenty here, all for about $10. Don't come for the ambience or décor---there isn't any. Also located at 4540 Lee Hwy., Old Dominion Dr., Arlington, VA, 703-243-4222, and 913 W. Broad St., Falls Church, VA, 703-241-9091.
