During my last visit to Cabo San Lucas, BCS, I returned back to one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Cabo. I say this not because it’s the most expensive place in town, nor because it has the best food in town, but because El Pollo de Oro, year after year, is reliably delicious and extremely inexpensive.El Pollo de Oro boasts brightly-colored tablecloths, pointsettias galore and sure-to-have-been hand-layed brick. The ambience, however, is not the first thing I would mention when recommending this authentic mexican joint- it would be the chicken. El Pollo de Oro slow cooks whole chicken on rottisserie for hours. When it arrives at your table be prepared- the skin is flavorful, crisp to perfection and the meat is tender and moist.
The best part? A quarter chicken with rice, beans and tortillas- only $3.50 USD! GASP!
Although the service is reliably slower, El Pollo de FANTASTICO far surpasses the experience I had at one of Lonely Planet’s top 5 recommended restaurants, O Mole Mio.
El Pollo de Oro is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner from 7:30-10:30pm.
Located at the corner of Cardenas and Morelos.
