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.

Pollo Campero is maybe one of the few restaurants Salvadoreans can call traditional and a must if you visit our country. This is not a fancy restaurant; in fact is a fast food chain originally from Guatemala, but that has been in our country for many years, and has endured the toughest moments in our countries history without never leaving...

This a place for those who want to try Salvadoran style fast food (think KFC). The place is so popular with locals that they take chicken pieces to other countries! nothing fancy at all, just a good taste. If you are the fried chicken type of person, you can try the breakfasts which are pretty typical dishes too
