Tiny, fast, friendly!! A well priced lunch spot where the owner makes you feel welcome. A very good burrito and freshly squeezed juice.

While visiting the city as tourists, my husband and I stopped and ate lunch at Original Pollos (Corner of Shattuck & Addison) because of it's convenient location and because a relative who lives in that area had recommended it to us. It is immediately adjacent...More
