El Pollo Norteno

528 W. Lincoln Ave.
Anaheim, CA 92804-3935

El Pollo Norteñol is a chicken restaurant in Anaheim, Garden Grove and Santa Ana. Get the chicken combos—two piece, or three, or half a chicken or the whole pinche thing, joined by two sides, your choice of flour or corn tortillas and a grilled jalapeño that’ll burn ya. The mesquite treatment leaves the skin golden, the edges transformed into chicharrones, the flesh as juicy as watermelon. Douse it in El Pollo Norteño’s famous red salsa, an onion-forward concoction that doesn’t burn so much as sear. Finally, wash it down with Orange Bang! the best drink in the world to go with charbroiled chicken.
