Pollo Campero - Fast Fried and Grilled Chicken in Chelsea

We just got back - it's near where Uncle Pete's used to be. We loved it - beans and rice not great, but fries, fried chicken, and grilled chicken - excellent. Get there early - be prepared to wait for a table or snake one while you wait in line.

Pollo Campero. Yes, the fried chicken is what all of Chelsea is lining up for. But don't overlook the grilled. (OK, get both.) It has a citrus-y flavor, with plenty of herbs, and a nice char on the skin; the lime wedges it's served with do much to perk up dry white meat.
