    Just wanted to post about the Pollo Factory over near Five Guys and The V. Absolutely delicious Peruvian chicken and I had a double order of fried plantains to go with it!! They were dead at 8pm and the guy working there said that every Monday evening is their slow day....I wonder why it was so slow when everything around them was busy. We would definitely go back!! :)

    I agree- they are spectacular. tried the new place in lansdowne- their beans are excellent but the chicken can't touch Pollo Factory. Fave before was La Chocita in Leesburg, but Pollo Factory beat them too on chicken! The Boy and The Man are huge fans of the Lomo too. everyone should check this place out- it's awesome!

    Agree with everyone, love their chicken! They are also very reasonably priced. I hope more people get the word out. This is one place I'd hate to see go out of business.

    Good chicken, disappointing sides.

    Anyone know if their chicken or certain sides are gluten-free? We've wanted to try over there but haven't had a good time to go and ask questions. Maybe on a Monday night.....

    Their chicken is definately one of our favorites. We usually get the black beans and plantains when they are ripe. I recommend you inquire before ordering. We did find out the rice has MSG in it so we skip that.

    I agree - Pollo Factory sides aren't that good. And the big guy who takes the orders isn't a very pleasant person. We weren't impressed with Firebrick.
