You'd be hard pressed to find better fast-food chicken than what they're serving up in the Dallas branches of this Guatemala-based chain. If you're used to KFC and Church's, the pressure-cooked fried chicken is a revelation, from the crispy, nearly greaseless batter to the juicy, tender meat within. Unlike many chicken chains, Campero also does rotisserie chicken well, with hints of citrus tang hinting at the restaurant's "secret formula" marinade. Served up with a couple tortillas and some Campero beans (pinto beans stewed with bacon, sausage, tomato and onion)—on real, actual dinner plates if you dine-in—this pollo is easily one of Big D's best fast-food offerings.

What are you guys talking about? Pollo Campero is N A S T Y! Gimme a break, do you know what the HELL you are talking about? This is basically KFC with a bit of cayenne pepper. Don't give me this crap about it being the best in Dallas. Go to Rudy's chicken in Oak Cliff if you indeed want some REAL fried chicken. GEEZ....

Pollo Campero is the best fried chicken in Dallas. And unlike Bubba's, you won't need your cardiologist on speed dial.Love the fried plantains, too!

I guess the secret is officially out. Campero is hands-down the best chicken. I'm partial to their fried chicken but if you like grilled that's great too. But the fried has a thin, yet really crispy crust that is to die for. Whatever spices they use in the crust is unlike anything out there. It is seriously addicting!

Totally agree. Campero is great chicken - specially the grilled. Also dig the Horchata drink. Mmmmmmmm... I even love their advertising. Big fan.
