Pollo Campero, L.A.

The largest fast food chain in Latin America, Pollo Campero (meaning “country chicken”) was first founded in Guatemala in 1971. Then, in 2002, the franchise expanded to the United States, beginning with this flagship location in downtown L.A. Here, lines extending out the front door are not uncommon, as patrons are willing to wait for the restaurant’s Latin-style fried chicken, prepared with a special blend of herbs and spices. While seated in the spacious, brightly colored dining area, customers enjoy their chicken with warm tortillas, fresh pico de gallo, and authentic sides like sweet plantains and fried yuca.
