The food was phenomenal. I would highly recommend this place. The enchiladas are great, pancakes are wonderful, and the burgers were great as well. My 3 picky preteens enjoyed it. And did not complain once. :)

Don Pollo is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There are many choices, so it never gets stale eating here. Very large space, great for meetings. Very friendly owner and staff. One of my favorite places to eat in town.

the sign out front is much more sophisticated than the inside is. The inside is much more casual and, typical of Mexican restaurants, too colorful. Still, we are here for the food and so the special of shrimp and grits was very tasty. The service...More
