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

The chicken is really tasty and the price might be a little higher than the standard salvadorean meal but for a foreigner might be an excellent price. Completely worthy to try it!!
