If you like to try new things, this is a great place to get your chicken. Not the typical chicken dishes but very flavorful and the service is topnotch.

Having Peruvian style chicken is a great experience to have. We enjoy it at least once a month. Lucuma ice cream is a must.

The place was empty at 11:00 am and I was wondering is this gong to be good??? At 11:35 the place was packed and the food was exceptional. Much better than Pollo Tropical and I like Pollo Tropical. The chicken has excellent flavor and as mentioned in another review the green sauce is exceptional.

While there are four sites, we visited the one on Hillcroft and 59, right on the edge of "Little India". We all had the 1/2 chicken (they sell 1/4 and whole), but we each tried different sides.

Pollo Bravo is one of our favorite lunch places in Houston. The rotisserie chicken is superb and they have the best fried sweet plantains in Houston IMO. Their crisp garden salad with a fresh avocado garnish and creamy dressing is also a refreshing delight. They also serve a great fried yucca with a super spicy green sauce. Plus, though the... More
