If you are ever in El Salvador this is a must. It is were the locals go. i guess I would say its like a Salvadorian KFC.

First time I tried it, it is awesome. Now I understand why people bring buckets of this chicken on the plane.

Fried chicken, it is good and there is parking and on hot days they have A/C. Don't eat the cabbage salad, I think it is nasty. If the fries are fresh they are the best in town.

I took my Compassion child to the one at the Metropolis mall. It is nice and spacious so our group could sit together and enjoy some good chicken and fries, for a very reasonable price! They even give Compassion International a generous discount! They did have a ball pit/jungle gym, but we didn't have to use it, but it looked... More

This is tasty, crispy chicken that is a little less greasy than KFC and similarly priced. They use a local central American recipe. I go to San Salvador every two years and eat there once on each trip.

This is the big fried fast-food chicken franchise in El Salvador. Restaurants everywhere with convenient delivery service. The taste is nice, probably better than KFC's original recipe and the spices are well balanced. At the restaurants, the menu has many options (including pizza!) and now includes some really tasty salads, which is nice for those who don't like greasy chicken.... More

This is the best chicken in the Country. It is so good that when El Salvadorans (and other visitors) travel to the USA they take a huge container of chicken with them. Found it to be quite good!

Our family always enjoys visiting Pollo Campero when we visit El Salvador. As foreigners, we always ask for the chicken to be cooked a little longer and we steer clear of the coleslaw. Our children have a wonderful time in the play area and the service is great even at busy times.

Eh. It's like KFC. Chicken was pretty greasy and the mashed potatoes weren't that great. I doubt I'd eat here again. Sorry Pollo Campero.

This is way better than KFC and other Fried Chicken Restaurants. They are very friendly and the food is great. It seems a very popular restaurant all over Central America. And it is traditional too! My parents and sister have eaten in Pollo Campero something like 20 years ago! And they say the taste is the same! I really would... More
