When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of rotisserie chicken and other Peruvian fare at The Pollo Factory in Sterling.
The Pollo Factory harnesses authentic spices and ingredients imported from Peru to fashion a menu showcasing its claim-to-fame charbroiled chicken. Stomachs can ride solo or join up with other empty vats to warmly embrace a half ($7.69) or whole ($13.29) rotisserie-grilled chicken, also known as pollo a la brasa. The popular Peruvian-style chicken comes with two sides of the chewer's choice, including steak fries, coleslaw, fried plantains, and sweet corn. The lomo saltado—beef slivers sautéed with fresh veggies and seductively laid out, like a ketchup-bottle centerfold, on a bed of fries ($11.99)—and the arroz chaufa—fried rice laced with vegetables, chicken, and eggs ($9.99)—join other specialties to provide faces with authentic, cheek-filling delights.
The Pollo Factory
At The Pollo Factory, three generations’ worth of Peruvian-cooking expertise infuses dishes such as crispy fried yucca and plantains, savory chicken, and ocean-fresh ceviche with years of cherished tradition. The scent of roasting la brasa chicken sends stomachs into quivering, hungry rumbles, and the sight of endlessly swirling rotisserie skewers hypnotizes eyes. Shellfish and squid mingle with zesty citrus marinades on plates of ceviche as scallop paella blends presentation and flavor with colorful yellow rice, red pepper, and green parsley. Other Peruvian specialties such as imported choclo corn, marinated beef-heart kebabs, and olive-stuffed tamales introduce taste buds to new horizons.
