My first try at this Salvadorian classic but I was told it's usually better. Fried, salty without much flavor with a side of decent fries and some white bread. Don't expect a healthy meal here!

After years of not eating pollo campero i can say that its flavour hasn't changed a bit. Always tasty, juicy and crunchy. I would say everybody loves this chicken but unfortunately it is expensive..

Went there with group. Called ahead and they had plenty of tables. Fried chicken was excellent and the side dishes were good.

This is El Salvador's best chicken restaurant from Guatemala, honestly bad service, greasy food, if you do not have a good stomach, avoid it, if yo want a cheap meal with consequences you can try it, flavor is great.

I visited Pollo Campero Boulevard de los Proceres for lunch!! Even though the food is good, the staff and service is the worst. I promised my self not to go in the restaurant ever again, but I can always go drive through.
