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.

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.
