I love their fajitas! They come out sizzling with fresh made tortillas. Their rice and beans are also good. We always order plantanos! They are so sweet, crispy on the outside and the cream they are served with us to die for. The parking can...More

Great neighborhood place. The interior is very festive. Had the chicken tortilla soup which was tasty. Enjoyed the guacamole as well - albeit it is a bit expensive. But it's fresh and tasty. My family likes the shrimp and bacon fajitas.

I go to Happy Hour at Pollo Mex often with my friends from work. The Swirls- strawberry and lime margarita- are the best, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. I have also had food delivered. Love this place!

From the complimentary tortilla chips and salsa to everything one orders, you cannot go wrong. We have enjoyed their guacamole. The tortilla chicken soup is delicious. We have yet to find a main course that didn't meet our expectations. The drinks are generous and strong....More

Though the food preparation was good, the meal I had--enchiladas--was quite bland and lacked the customary Mexican flavors of the other restaurants in the Silver Spring area.

I am not normally a big fan of Mexican food but I really liked the seafood burrito that I had last night at Pollo-Mex. The scrimp and scallops were large, fresh, and delicious. At a previous lunch, I had a quarter chicken for lunch and...More

This is a small restaurant located in strip shopping center with limited tight seating but very good Mexican style food with reasonable prices and decent margaritas. Friendly service and always busy. One of the few places you can get a good meal in colesville md

Our Mexican and Latin foods are prepared with the freshest ingredient. Try our salads, soups or tortas, all served with chips and salsa. Our famous taco salad is served in a crispy tortilla shell filled with crisp romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and beans served with cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream for only $6.95. Our tasty rotisserie chicken is marinated overnight in a delicious blend of Latin herbs and spices and then slowly cooked to perfection. Try a quarter, half or whole chicken with two or four sides. We also grill tender cuts of steak, after it is marinated overnight then slowly cooked on the grill to create our steak and two sizes or solo dish.
