Best Pollo Asado

El Pollo Rico

That smoky smell wafting down South First Street leads to a swift pollo asado drive-up. In mere minutes, a bag of the grilled, hot, steaming goodness passes through the window, complete with all the fixin's: rice, beans, tortillas, salsa y limón. Three locations churn out authentic Monterrey cuisine, presenting their specialty: the whole or half pollo asado, and a slew of other goodies for a reasonable price. But South First has the drive-through.
