This tiny hole in the wall is always crowded so when you do takeout, call ahead. Parking is not great but that's LA! Corner of 8th and Western. <br>The chicken is tender and moist, the rice is better than the french fries. They have a spicy green sauce. If you want extra, they will charge you. Good value for delicious chicken!
For me sole reason to come to Pollo a la Brasa is the anticuchos. Very few places around L.A. carry the succulent beef heart skewers, which are a staple of Andean street food. While their chicken is infused with the smoky flavor that only comes from a wood burning rotisserie and their dry run is quite good, I have more than once found the meat to be on the dry side. They also serve fried yuca and chicha morada.
