ONE THING.... Chickeeennn!! this place does it really well! LOVE IT! its a good walk from Joya towers but it was worth it none the less! only pet peeve with the food they serve was the chicken was more like a Chick (ofcourse, im exaggerating) but I would love to have a bigger portion for it. other than that this place was a 10 in my book!

Dim-lit ambience, widely open to the public, not too crowded, tables spaced out evenly, another dinner to remember.

I truly love the open space in restaurants if they aren't airconditioned. It disperses the warm temperature, smoke and odor and allows free-flowing cool breeze in.

For starters, I had adequately sized jalapeno and cheese quesadillas (P133) with mayonnaise and tomato sauce. Not as stinging as I expected and the cheese melts fairly. Nothing unique about it but a good tummy filler before the mains.

Though they reminded that it'll take 15-20 minutes to prepare, their one-piece spicy fried chicken (P145) with two side dishes (spicy rice and patats bravas) came in early followed quickly by a modest glass of limonada corrupta (P120). l thought I needed a bit of spirit to cap off the night. Chicken was fork-tender and juicy under that thick crunchy layer served with a not so remarkable, somewhat lukewarm gravy. I expected for the leg part as previously said but I was served with a bit challenging bony piece. It was delicious, nonetheless.

The spicy rice was ok, a curried serving of loose grains. I was looking for their dirty rice but it was probably removed from their menu. The patatas bravas were warm and mushy and just right with mayonnaise and ketchup.

Lemon and lime are probably the snakiest ingredients for a cocktail. You enjoy their tanginess forgetting the alcohol in it and the moment you stand up, you suddenly feel your legs becoming heavy. That's how I felt with their limonada. I quite love it actually. They have this all-you-can-drink cocktail spree from 11am-8pm and you can choose among four really good cocktails for P400! How cool is that!

Definitely be going back and trying their roasted chicken with their famous chimichurri sauce. Hmmmmm. Got me curious!

This place is always full. I am not sure if it's the time we came by but we always come here for dinner.
Eventhough it's full, we still want to come back. Why?
We just loooove their roast chicken. I can even finished a whole chicken in one setting, seriously!128540
Or sadja talagang matakae ako? Hahaha128514

You can order half or whole chicken and you can choose 2 sidings. It's best to eat chicken with beer.127867

It's an open place so expect a noisy crowd.128077 it's a good place to drink as well. Good for barkada and colleagues.

Crews are very attentive. Quick service.

I love CHICKEN and this place gave me another reason to love chicken more.

I've heard a lot of good things about Señor Pollo and I'm glad I was already able to try it myself!!! The chicken was too damn good especially with their Chimichurri Sauce (made up of finely-chopped parsley, garlic, vegetable oil, etc)!!! The price of 1 whole roast chicken wasn't bad at all. For P680, you get to choose any 3 side dishes to go with your chicken. For our meal, we got the Spicy Rice and Patatas Bravas. It was the best decision ever!!! It was really super good!!! I will definitely come back to get more Señor Pollo chicken!!!

We ordered the Señor Pollo roast, hot wings, spicy rice, Colombian beans, patatas bravas and mac n' cheese. It was good, but forgettable. I liked the interior and general ambiance though. Will I go back? Probably.

Unlimited drinks b*tches! Haha

For a good PhP 400, from morning till 9PM they offer a drinks-all-you-can with 4 kinds of cocktails. We had ourselves hammered through till 9 and my favorite was limonada corrupto or something like it. Sadly no photos to show evidence of the crime haha!

After our brief stay at El Chupacabra,  i wanted to some skewered treats,  Tambai is just across.  We were both dead set on hanging there for a couple of hours.  After x number of minutes,  we both decided that Tambai is not our scene anymore.  There were kids with colored hair speaking in some unknown language there.  Some dude in a funny hat and the joint reeks of too-cool-for-school vibe. 

I felt a lil out of place and ancient all of a sudden.  We decided to check the other street.  Then we saw Senor Pollo - a lil peaceful and less crowds.  It is time for some chicken.

Since we were not that hungry,  we decided to order the two piece chicken with two sides.  They offer two flavors - original and spicy, you cant get mixed flavors so i opted for the original.  Server said wait time is 15 minutes. 

We were seated outside as it seems a lil dark in their indoor dining area and no AC.  And oh,  they play good music -  The Killers  Presidents of the USA,  Nirvana and Incubus. 

I was surprised to see that the chicken was fried not roasted.  I was expecting this joint is similar to El Pollo Loco.  The chicken is really flavorful,  crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.  I am guessing they used some sort of dry rub before frying these babies to perfection.  The sides we got is a lil redundant,  patatas bravas and mashed potatoes.  He liked the latter as it is laced with minced garlic.  The patatas bravas on the other hand is mediocre,  the sauce they used is a lil weird.

It being a Friday night,  yuppies started to come in around 7ish,  place was packed!  Best to come in early to avoid crowds. 

Overall,  i liked my first meeting with Senor Pollo.  They serve good and affordable food in a relaxed setting.

I personally like their fried chicken better than the roasted one. You have to be willing to wait for 20 minutes though. Order cheese and garlic quesadilla as appetizer!

Surprisingly, I enjoyed this visit more than the first time we went here. Now I understand why a lot love Señor Pollo. 128513

Ordered quarter roasted chicken w 2 sides and 1 order of the cheese and jalapeños quesadillas.

The quesadillas was just okay, not overflowing with cheese but the white sauce and salsa was good and I enjoyed adding the spicy sauce in it.

The roasted chicken was good. I had the breast part and it was still flavorful. I enjoyed every part of my chicken! 9786️ Plus the quarter size was big enough already. 128077🏼 For the sides, I chose the tossed salad and fries for Ony. The salad was surprisingly good. For a side order, I wasn't expecting that much but since it was really good, I would consider buying a whole portion of this salad if ever they offer one. The dressing was citrusy and the lettuce was coated well. It was very refreshing! 128076🏼 I also got to try the mac n cheese, coleslaw and patatas bravas which were all yummy!! I liked the mac n cheese the most. Soooo cheesy! 128155 The dirty rice and garlic rice were also good too!

Since it's friday and I survived one of the most stressful week of my working life, I decided to get one order of Margarita. #FeelingBadGirl 128517128520128541 But I wasn't able to finish it hahaha and according to my friends, the drink wasn't that good.

Service was good and fast. Our chicken arrived in less than 5mins. Maybe they have a lot of chicken already prepared and ready to serve. Plus even though it's a friday night and the place was full, as in, the servers were still attentive. It was just hard trying to get the bill but overall, it was an okay and chill experience. 128513

Good thing we did not bring our car. The road was narrow and streets were full of parked vehicles. Vibe was impressive. It is as if you are not in Makati. Food was good. Chicken was better with chimichurri. Quesadillas was nothing different. Macaroni and cheese was okay if macaroni was soft enough to chew. Servers were nice but it took a while for our food to arrive.

I'm kinda not getting why their chicken taste bland. But it is one of the tender and juicy chicken I've ever tasted.

Ordered also their cheese quesedilla and I definitelt recommend to all of you. The dip & salsa combo compliments the generous cheese of the quesedillas.

Would definitely pay it a visit again (just for the quedesillas).

P.S.

Nakakainis na may extra bayad ang extra chimichurri. Ugh. Dapat libre lang. Hahaha

First issue was parking. Narrow street but got to park on a lot across it. Liked the vibe of the place. Ideal for chill Drinking and they have a bar. Ordered their bestseller roast chicken. Liked the taste. Though I think s&r' is more tasty. The chicken was soft. And sides were just okay. Macaroni salad and tossed salad. Would come back to drink next time and try their bar chow.

Halloween Afterparty Dinner with my friends. Ordered roasted chicken with sweetpotato mash and fries, quesadillas then some beer.

Chicken was okay but not something I'd crave for but I do have to try their fried chicken next time! Quesadillas needs a lot of improvement. Cilantro's sets the bar really high for me!

Good service! Nice ambiance!

Something for lunch? Try this señor pollo at makati ebro St. Although the place is hard to find (for me when we first go here our driver didn't know this also). They offer a huge variety of foods and drinks. I ordered the roast chicken and sisig a must try!, I also love their iced tea hoping that it is unlimited lol (when I go to restaurants I look first at their juices,teas,beverages) . The place is not aircon but the ventilation is good and the art wall, grafiitti was add to the artsy of the place. The price is affordable and they offer also alcoholic beverages, cocktails, etc. I guess they are open until late midnight. :)

Their Lechon Asado Rice was amazeballs. Bit overpriced and the serving was small for its price. However, it's a must-try. The pork is very tender and savory while the skin is crispy. You can eat it without the spicy soy sauce. Pair it with spicy rice and you'd be wishing it's lunchtime again so you can order it once more (well if not for the price....)

Had sweet potato and latin coleslaw as sides to the quarter chicken. Everything was really good together. 128522

Service was great but the vibe of the place, I didn't like so much. It's just really too dark here. 128516
