I remember a day when the line was out the door for lunch. It use to be awesome but what the heck happened. The chicken use to be so tasty and we are sadden by how the standards have dropped. Would not be surprised if...More

I grew up eating Campero, so whenever I see a joint I like to have some, but the last time I was taken aback cause their prices are out of control, I paid 12 dollars for 3 pieces of chicken and 2 sides. I think...More

I remember the time when Pollo Campero opened in Herndon. The lines to taste the pollo with South American recipe was beyond belief, and spilled on the street. However, those were bygone days. The restaurant has far less clientele once the initial hoopla subsided. I...More

Delicious chicken- their campers beans is why we eat there at least twice a month. Service can be slow and frustrating- but food is worth it.

Went to Pollo Campero in Guatemala so was excited to see it here. Maybe if I had stuck with their regular fried chicken it would have been good but tried their grilled this time which was marinaded with unpleasant taste. So probably wouldn't return.

Pollo Campero is a good Guatemalan fried chicken franchise. Their best option in my opinion are the nuggets or as they them "camperitos" with hot mustard sauce.

The service was quick and friendly with no arguments on using a coupon. (Unlike the nearby Popeye's) The fried chicken pieces were nicely sized with a very good and unique flavor which was not spicy. The only downer was the selection of sides is quite...More
