Armando Tacos - Chicken Flame-Broiled to Perfection

by Benjamin Eugene

San Felipe offers a great variety of dining choices: Mexican cuisine from street carts to fine restaurants, Italian, Chinese, steak and of course great seafood. If chicken is your dining choice and you want to eat in the comfort of your own home, then one of the best in San Felipe is Armando Tacos – Pollo Asada.

Armando Tacos specializes in flame-broiled chicken and steak, cooked to order and served hot either for take out, or you can have a seat in their small dining area with a cold soda, juice or water; no cervesa sold here. The chicken is seasoned to perfection and served with boiled beans, corn or flour tortillas that they make themselves and serve fresh and hot, and a fresh green salad with a vinaigrette dressing. Of course, if you’re taking it home you can hold the dressing for your favorite ranch or blue cheese pulled cold from your own refrigerator. The meals also come with diced cucumbers, radishes and if you ask, grilled scallions.

Every Tuesday, they offer their especial which is a chicken and a half, for only $10. The especial is one full chicken on the bone, grilled to order and an additional boneless half chicken with mild seasoning.

If you enjoy grilled chicken, then you owe it to yourself to stop into Armando Tacos and try their especial. You’ll savor the favor of their chicken and the best part is for only $10, you’ll get enough for several meals.

Armando Tacos – Pollo Asada is located on Chetumal (the main road heading into town) on the left side, just past the power station if you’re heading towards the traffic circle.
