Al Pollos Restaurant

$$$$

The menu at Al Pollos is long, but it’s easier to navigate than a picture book. That’s because you’re at this counter-service spot for the chicken. The charcoal-grilled bird, which is served with a layer of caramelized onions on top, tastes like it’s been slow-smoked, and it’s the reason this place should be top of mind when you’re looking for an inexpensive but delicious dinner in the area. Get the $11 special that includes a quarter chicken, fluffy rice, and flavor-packed pinto beans.
