Pollo Express


1315 W 18th St, Chicago

Occasionally a place is so fantastic, you don’t understand how you haven’t been eating there every week. And unless Pollo Express is already your Thursday post-gym dinner ritual (in which case, congratulations), you should make up for lost time. This small, cash-only spot has only about eight tables and a short and to-the-point menu: Chicken. Granted, you can get it in a bowl, burrito, or quesadilla, and OK, steak is an option too, but ordering the half or whole chicken is the correct move. The meat is juicy, and comes with a pile of soft tortillas, pickled onions, and salsa. Plus if you go on Tuesdays or Thursdays, there’s a buy-one-get-one-free half-chicken deal, so you’ll be able to eat charcoal-grilled chicken every day of the week.
