Free Chicken at Pollo Campero Next Week

  • Pollo Campero

Free chicken, free chicken! Next Tuesday, the lines may be longer than usual at the newish Mission spot Pollo Campero (2740 Mission St.), or as we like to call it, the Best Juicy Guatemalan Fried Chicken, Evah! Pollo Campero is rolling a freebie leg OR thigh between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. on April 9. We're thinking that this free offer may or may not be in response to the major Tuesday draw at nearby Popeye's Louisiana Chicken: where $1.29 nabs one leg and one thigh pieces of chicken all day, every Tuesday.

Pollo Campero is a chain of chicken joints that have a cult following--the chicken tastes fresh and is less greasy than Popeye's. The restaurant's proprietary 12-herb mix on grilled and fried chicken is all licks of citrus and oregano with an addictive garlicky note. Insider tip: we've found the in-store dining wait to be more reasonable than the to-go line. Their yucca side is a must try or hit up the new Pollo Campero dessert item: "sweets sticks," which are strips of lightly fried flour tortillas sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar crystals.
