Went there with my family and after being short changed a few cents by the cashier we proceeded to sit down and eat but after my young son noticed a roach we just decided to take the good to go. Honestly you can't throw a rock in Herndon without hitting a Peruvian chicken restaurant and should your rock hit this... More

The service was quick and friendly with no arguments on using a coupon. (Unlike the nearby Popeye's) The fried chicken pieces were nicely sized with a very good and unique flavor which was not spicy. The only downer was the selection of sides is quite limited with the website listing some nice ones not sold here. One thing I'm sure... More

So I mostly get take out. They have two kinds of chicken a fried and a roasted- I prefer the roasted or whatever they call it (baked etc.)- the sides are good- the staff is efficient and the manager will help you if you have a problem- it all has a south of the border taste which I like- mostly...

Pollo Campero serves Peruvian fried chicken. It's crispy, juicy, and comes with your choice of side. The food was pretty good.

We had dinner here Tuesday after my liquid fast. I was so hungry but the food did not bring back my appetite. After previous experience eating at Super Chicken this place made me sad. Chicken did not have any taste, the tortilla was nasty. Popeye chicken taste better. Extremely disappointed and will not come back.

you tired of KFC or Popeye's...? this is the best alternative chicken place you'll find. In fact, I only rank Chick-Fil-A as a better tasting fast food chicken... Awesome place... excellent for large take-out parties...

Things must have improved since the previous reviews were written. We were in the area and had read about this small chain of central American chicken places, which the manager said that for now was only around DC. It was an interesting experience--most of the patrons were Hispanic , the majority of whom were getting take out. The staff was... More

We were curious about Pollo Campero especially after reading how popular it is among people of Central American descent. When they opened restaurants in the US, the lines would literally be out the door all day long. So, we assumed it would be really great chicken---wrong! Our daughter went in there one day to get takeout food for the family.... More
