The first time I tried I was in shock... the flavor it is amazing... the size of the portions is really generous. The price is low.. the only problem is that the area where the restaurant is located is kind of dangerous, so it's better if you send someone to buy the chicken and eat at your hotel o the... More

Looking for the best roasted chiken in town, then go to Pollo Bonanza. They've only have had one location since they opened about 20 years ago, but the chicken is tasty and delicious. It's located in the Down Town. There's a parking lot in front where you can leave your car.

Salvadorian love eating and are faithfull to the places they like. This is one of those places where locals get crazy and spend hours to be served.

This is a rosticcerie chicken a-la-Salvadoran. It is one of those business who has kept their homemade flavor and have not become greedy at expanding/making their food too industrial. Salvadoran love it and you will see always lines for it especially on weekend. It is not in the best part of town so I doubt almost no foreigner will have... More

My husband remembers eating here with his mother when he was a child over 50 years ago. We've now returned twice. Once was back in 2006 and then again yesterday. Both times we were disappointed with the food and my husband walked out complaining that the chicken was not at all the same as what he remembered from when he... More

With my coworkers we went to get chicken for people at the office because most people hadn't tried it even when they live here in the capital and everybody was amazed by the chicken taste, price and yummy fries. The wait was worth the great meal.

I really like this chicken but it should be very recommended that you guys open more locations in other places because it is difficult to access there, but is worth it for sure.
