While El Pollo Rico is no sight for sore eyes, it is a dream for your taste buds, and that’s what counts, right? With some of the best Peruvian chicken around (char-broiled with crispy skin flecked with garlic, cumin, and citrus, and amped up by house-made sauces), this Arlington joint is no stranger to lines out the door. But don’t let that deter you -- service is quick, friendly, and will pass off your meal to you in no time at all. Close with something sweet, like alfajores, flan, or milhojas, the cherry on top of your delectable Peruvian meal.
