All I have to say about this chicken.....IS THE BEST! If you are a fan of char-broiled chicken, this is your ultimate stop. Their specialty is a full chicken order, which is a large tray of a full char-broiled chicken served in roasted onion, roasted jalapenos, and potato fries (similar to the ones served at a Popeye's). The cost of this order is $16, but it serves 4-6 people. It also includes beans (which melted cheese), tasty Mexican rice and salad. Nice deal.
Okay, the chicken is seasoned so well that its addictive, literally. My family's tradition for Christmas is a typical Mexican tradition of serving tamales for dinner. Ever since we discovered Taqueria El Arco (El Pollo Feliz), we replaced the tamale tradition with this chicken! Even when we have guest over our house, we order chicken from this place and they ALL love it.
I recommend you place an order and pick it up, since the restaurant is small and packed daily. The original restaurant is located in Little Village. Trust me, it is worth the try for this addictive and tasty chicken.
