“Gold Mine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Want to succulent, tender roosted chicken with two tasty sides? This is the place for lunch or diner. Look around, the diners are happy, smiling, and busily devouring their tasty chicken. Really efficient, your order is out is 3-5 minutes and you can sit down and watch some soccer game being played in some South American city.

“Best Spot for a Quick Lunch Hour in Bethesda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I can't tell you the number of times I've been to Don Pollo in the past few years. It's just a short ride from my work in downtown Bethesda and I probably go there about 40% of the time I go out for lunch. What's not to like? The food is fresh, the service is friendly and prompt, there's always seating and the best part is that you can get lunch for about $6. And it's a filling, fresh hot lunch. What's not to like! My favorite there is the Chop Chop - chicken off the bone with rice, beans and salad. Also I keep an eye out for whenever they have chicken tamales as a lunch special. And for those days when you need a helping of extra comfort, there is mac n' cheese. It's the best!

We go to Don Pollo primarily for take out. The chicken and the cole slaw are fantastic and the price is unbeatable.

“Very good Peruvian chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Good Peruvian chicken rotisserie in the heart of Bethesda. In our opinion this place comes in a close second to the best Pollo Rico in the area - the Leisure World Crisp'n'Juicy. Prices are typical for Peruvian Chicken: $20 for a whole chicken with sides and a soda.

“Wow this place is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great fast service and excellent quality and tasty food! Try the green sauce (spicy but worth it). The price and value is unbeatable and this place is always consistently great. Kid friendly too!
