the chicken (pollo en brazas) is for me the best in Caracas, really good. The place is not cheap but you can eat some semi-traditional food . You can find for the same price maybe a lot better atmosphere, but not sure if the same flavor.

This is a typical "pollera", an inexpensive restaurant where they have thousands of chickens cooking at the same time, slowly roasting. You can eat right there, or you can buy the rotisserie chicken and eat it at home. A wonderful option for a family lunch or dinner without having to cook. Chicken is delicious, not fancy at all.

Nice place for what it is... Good chicken (not the best, I have my own favorite somewhere else I've been going since I was kid, sorry!). It's ok!

Good, cheap and with lots of Venezuelans flavors. There are a lot of "polleras" in Caracas and this one probably the best.

The place is to go when you are reaaal hungry. The food comes in big portions. and real tasty. The chicken is the best in Caracas. Steak, pork ribs are reaally tasty too. Not pricey. The waiters are very friendly. The place is not good for romantic moments. soo noisy.

Far better than our expectations, "El Pollo" had the best meat in CARACAS. Owners were superkind and the Pollo (Chicken) was magic and fresh. A MUST in Caracas.
