We’ve found the perfect go-to for a quick, affordable lunch in EAV—Pollo Primo, which continuously churns out hella seasoned chicken plates, hella fast. It’s pretty simple: order a quarter bird, half a bird, or a whole bird (aye). And it’s not an exaggeration—when you order the whole bird, you get an entire chicken. Each meal comes with tasty rice, beans, tortilla, and salsas. Their lunch special rotates every week but usually features some type of chicken dish, a few sides, and a drink for around $15. Make sure to order the churros since their sugary, cinnamon goodness is the perfect cap to your meal. Their patio is a pleasant place to relax on your lunch break, just know that when the weather is nice, you won’t be the only one there.

This popular Buckhead spot gives you kick-ass food like Tangy Guinness BBQ wings and the crepe-style chicken quesadilla along with plenty of Irish soccer pub charm.
