We love the Chicken Soap they have with White rice. Brings back childhood memories. The portion is huge and the price :)

While in the Gwinnett area on Jimmy Carter Blvd, we decided to stop at Pollo Norteno because we were in the mood for some Mexican food. My wife and I had never been to this spot. It was totally unplanned. The service was absolutely fantastic and the food was excellent. We definitely plan on going back. I highly recommend it.

REAL Mexican food made by Mexicans! There's not a bad dish on the menu! & their chicken is amazing!!! 6 different kinds of salsa on the "chip bar" along with radishes, onions & tomatoes. Plenty of parking, easy to get to & reasonably priced.

At one time, Pollo Norteno was named El Norteno. We had been loyal customers of their Chamblee location for many years. We loved driving by and smelling the delicious smoked chicken wafting out onto the street. We even had them cater a birthday party for us one year. When they closed, we were sad. A few years later we remembered... More
