Not sure what all the fuss is about other than this is a "home team" Guatemala family brand. Fried chicken is fried chicken. Get it to go to avoid the "fast food" experience.

We went with a group of 11 people and ordered a couple of the family specials. You get chicken, fries and a pitcher of drinks with the family special. Choosing the largest one gets you a salad, too.

It's good chicken and a fairly cheap way to feed a large crowd. But I was disappointed that they no longer brine their chicken, that used to be the best part, that it was super juicy because it was brined.

Campero is something close to the national restaurant of Guatemala--they have many outlets beside the one in Antigua. It's not fancy and it's not exotic, but it is where middle class Guatemalan families probably eat most. Guatemalans living in the States long for it (they have stores in LA and New Orleans, probably more). The chicken is crispy and usually hot. You really haven't had the full Guatemalan experience if you leave without trying it.

CentroAmerican fastfood place with a lot of different chicken dishes. Not very good and the price isn't right for what you get. Bad quality food , you can find better in Antigua.

This company tries to up the game by placing a red velvet strap and being pretentious about the service (wait to be seated). The food is expensive and not very good. The French fries are HORRENDOUS! Their coleslaw is flavorless mayonnaise type stuff. They keep their ketchup and picante bottles almost empty, and getting them to serve you more is horrific. The service is at best very poor and the price horribly high for what they serve.
