Pollos Asados Los Norteños, of smoky fame
, has more competition these days.
The Culebra corridor gained a new chicken-centric eatery on March 7, with the opening of Super Pollos Asados Los Primos
which offers mesquite-grilled roasters available as either half and whole bird with rice, charro beans, grilled onions and lime. Unlike Pollos off Rigsby, Los Primos offers a larger menu with all-day breakfast, mini tacos, burritos, tortas, and a slew of lunch plates with flautas, a Mexican burger, super tostadas, super quesadillas, super papa (of stuffed grilled potatoes), molcajetes, parilladas, nachos, chicken wings, and ribs.
The restaurant is complete with sassy, but amazing, servers and is plenty spacious with ample parking, for now at least.
Though the similarities to Los Norteños will be and have to be made, Los Primos held its own during our quick lunchtime visit with great flour tortillas, juicy chicken and an addicting, creamy green sauce that'll clear up those sinuses.
Super Pollos Asados Los Primos is open 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. They'll celebrate their month anniversary with live broadcasts from a local radio station and specials.
