What Is Pollo Campero?

Pollo Campero specializes in deliciously seasoned and expertly prepared chicken and unique sides like yuca fries and sweet plantains. Their menu is based on generations of family recipes.

We’re talking about marinated to the bone, slow-down-and-enjoy-every-bite, food. Flavor that’s more than skin deep—that’s bold, complex and a little unexpected. Flavor that is not only in our food but baked into our DNA and expressed with our passion.

"Campero" translates to "countryside" in Spanish, reflecting the brand's commitment to a rustic, home-style culinary experience. At this restaurant, it's not just about the food – they say they strive to turn your visit into a celebration of family and traditions.
