“Elizabeth residents have been driving more than half an hour to satisfy their cravings for Pollo Campero’s famous Latin fried and grilled chicken. Now we are right in their backyard,” says Gonzalez.
Pollo Campero is known for its marinated grilled and fried chicken that is hand prepared the same way it is in Latin America using a signature blend of Latin spices. The restaurant also is known for its Campero beans, flavorful rice, crispy yucca fries, and sweet plantains. Its Latin specialty drinks including horchata, tamarindo, and guava are hard to find in the United States, making them instant fan favorites.
Pollo Campero was founded as a family-owned restaurant in Guatemala in 1971. The restaurant quickly grew to become the world’s largest Latin chicken restaurant chain and is embraced by more than 85 million people worldwide.
“When a new Pollo Campero opens it’s not unusual to see long lines of customers just waiting for a taste of our crispy Latin chicken. We look forward to introducing bold new flavors to food lovers and serving a new community of devoted Pollo Campero fans in Elizabeth,” said President and COO of Campero USA, Roberto Denegri.
