It's probably not national, but there's an excellent chicken place around here called Pollo Campero. I believe it's a Guatemalan restaurant, and it's really good. Not only is their fried chicken good, but they also have yummy grilled chicken and sides like black beans, fried plantains, cucumber salad, etc.

Church's is soooooooooooooo bland tho.

Used to only go cause of great specials (20 pieces for $10). But ended up giving them to my dogs.

Popeyes is far tastier and they have a great Tuesday special $1.29/2 pieces. I order like 20.

Yep - Pollo Campero is great. We stop at one in Atlanta at least once a month. We stop so often we know the night manager - and we're four hours away. I always order the same thing - two-piece dinner with frijoles, fried yucca, and horchata.

Yes! They really should rename it the Chicken Ranch. Their chicken is amazing while their pizza is just mediocre.

It is a little take out place, and they probably have one in PA... I know there are a few around. I'll have to give the fried okra a try

Mom uses the same cast iron frying pan from her wedding. I think that's one of the secrets.

I like KFC's chicken but it so expensive that I usually just pick up chicken from the deli department at Fred Meyers while shopping.
