“Chicken done right!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Love their chicken - it's juicy and well seasoned. I also like their yucca, corn pico, and plantains. When I want to go healthy, their chicken salad is also very good.

“Gold Mine”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Want to succulent, tender roosted chicken with two tasty sides? This is the place for lunch or diner. Look around, the diners are happy, smiling, and busily devouring their tasty chicken. Really efficient, your order is out is 3-5 minutes and you can sit down and watch some soccer game being played in some South American city.

“Best Spot for a Quick Lunch Hour in Bethesda”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I can't tell you the number of times I've been to Don Pollo in the past few years. It's just a short ride from my work in downtown Bethesda and I probably go there about 40% of the time I go out for lunch. What's not to like? The food is fresh, the service is friendly and prompt, there's always seating and the best part is that you can get lunch for about $6. And it's a filling, fresh hot lunch. What's not to like! My favorite there is the Chop Chop - chicken off the bone with rice, beans and salad. Also I keep an eye out for whenever they have chicken tamales as a lunch special. And for those days when you need a helping of extra comfort, there is mac n' cheese. It's the best!

“Best Deal for Delicious Chicken in Bethesda”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We go to Don Pollo primarily for take out. The chicken and the cole slaw are fantastic and the price is unbeatable.
