Since she was unable to go out, I went to El Pollo Rico at the suggestion of a gentleman who was also visiting a patient. It was a little difficult to get to... read more

I'm a Mexican I I always avoid to go to mexican restaurants outside the country, but we were in this mall in Carbondale and we decide to give it a try. I was expecting the same tex-mex taste, but instead I got a nice ceviche, and the rice was very good, just like home.

Just came into town from Crested Butte. Stopped in this strip mall to get my bearings and found this restaurant. Really good Mexican food!

We were on our way home from a four day camping trip and were looking for a hole in the wall kind of place that wouldn't mind how dirty we were. We saw El Pollo Rico and figured with luck it would be okay. It was way beyond okay. It was really, really good, authentic Mexican food. We both had... More

Everything was delicious. I had a chicken burrito and my husband had a carne asada burrito. Everything, including the rice and beans, were perfectly spiced and the flavor was great. It took awhile to get our food, but it was fresh and hot. It's just a small place in a strip mall, but the food is really great. The lunch... More
