We were on our way home from a four day camping trip and were looking for a hole in the wall kind of place that wouldn't mind how dirty we were. We saw El Pollo Rico and figured with luck it would be okay. It was way beyond okay. It was really, really good, authentic Mexican food. We both had the chicken enchiladas and they were outstanding, covered with a flavorful green sauce that included diced avocados. The beans and rice were equally flavorful. Service was very attentive and friendly. The house margarita was a little different than the traditional margarita, but surprisingly good. It had a "fruitier" taste than your typical margarita, dominated by oranges. Different, but excellent. No question, next time we go through Carbondale, we'll stop at El Pollo Rico again.

Everything was delicious. I had a chicken burrito and my husband had a carne asada burrito. Everything, including the rice and beans, were perfectly spiced and the flavor was great. It took awhile to get our food, but it was fresh and hot. It's just a small place in a strip mall, but the food is really great. The lunch menu is very small compared to the dinner menu. I would absolutely come back!
