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.

Pollo Campero is a Central American institution. I am not kidding. At the airport in San Salvador, the Pollo Campero packages chicken that the locals then pack as carry on to take all over the world. That eventually proved to be too stinky, so Pollo created an airtight bag for carry on. Salvadorans love this place. And for good reason.... More

The local Salvadoran people told me to eat here while on business in El Salvador. I'm glad I tried it! Very delicious! Much better than kfc, which is gross in El Salvador.

This a traditional fast food chain that holds a nostalgic spot in all Salvadoran hearts...yet it sucks balls! Seven bucks for two pieces of fried chicken and fries is nuts in El Salvador. They have a unique flavor/seasoning, I'll give them that; but it doesn't justfy such rates for such common food and old/tacky infrastructure.
