About Pollo Campero

Pollo Campero started as a tiny restaurant in Guatemala with a prized recipe for chicken passed down from generation to generation.  Hundreds of restaurants later, Campero’s passion remains the same: to serve the best meals possible to family and friends. The name “Campero” is rooted in Latin American heritage.  Derived from the word “campo” which references vast fields for agriculture and raising free range animals as well as the craftsmanship that goes into it, Campero means “from the campo” or from the earth. Inspired by earth’s natural flavors and its Latin heritage, more than 40 years later, Campero’s Authentic Latin Chicken has stayed true to its roots.  From the delicate hand-breading, its unmistakable combination of herbs and spices, to 100% natural Latin drinks as well as earthy Latin sides, the restaurants deliver a true Campero experience: unique, exciting and natural flavors straight from the earth.
