“Rancid Smell, Filthy Restaurant”

El Pollon Restaurant
Ranked #47 of 104 Restaurants in Iquitos
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 August 2014

It hits you as you walk through the open doors - a horrible rancid smell of garbage. I was almost sick from the smell. You would think a chicken roasting restaurant would have a wonderful roast meat smell, but not at El Pollon.
There were piles of garbage bags, the floors were filthy dirty. The whole place needed an extreme cleaning.
Had to leave, could not eat with the rancid sewer smell.

Basic fried food, roasted chicken and hamburgers. They offer good fried banana slides. The potato chips are quite not so crunchy.

I'm usually a vegetarian but my friends wanted chicken and for once I broke down. Very tasty and authentic.

Great nice-spiced, roasted chicken and terrific fries. What more needs to be said? The fruit drinks looked good too!

What a smell coming out of that place! I thought for just a minute it would be nice to try some of their chicken. I don't know if they do not clean their kitchen or garbage cans but there must be some endemic bacteria there because I have never smelled something so rancid wafting out of a restaurant
