El Pollo Norteño is a chicken chain in Anaheim, Santa Ana and Garden Grove. You can still order epic meals of chicken, the skin turned into golden shards, the meat as bouncy as a marshmallow, the two soaked in lime juice and chile powder that embeds itself down into the bone. , they sell burritos and tacos and even other meats, but one always goes with your choice of chicken size (quarter, half or full), sides of pinto beans and rice, and corn tortillas that should be better but you always forgive because everything else is so delicious.
