The menu at Pollo Supremo will feature pollo asado with three sides, a soup, and churros or flan for dessert. A family meal option will be available as well. 

Along with the food, the counter service restaurant will offer horchata, aguas frescas, and possibly beer and wine. 

“I know it sounds crazy, but I don’t think it’s a bad time to [open a restaurant],” Le told Atlanta Magazine. “It’s a good time to get good rent in a location we want.”

The location, designed for outdoor eating, will reportedly feature a large, 40-seat outdoor patio, and drive through. While the exact location has not yet been disclosed, further reporting by Eater Atlanta pins Pollo Supremo in the former Bento Mac space, at 792 Moreland Ave SE.

Le is also working on a boutique seafood market called Fishmonger near Ponce de Leon Avenue. The market, still in its early stages of development, hopes to offer fresh seafood and oysters along with sauces and dips. As with Pollo Supremo, Fishmonger’s location has not been disclosed.

What Now Atlanta has reached out to Le for comment on both Pollo Supremo and Fishmonger.

    1. I had to do a lot of Googling to figure out your reference.
      I guess they weren’t on my radar in the 80s…
      They have very interesting song titles though.

      1. They weren’t on anyone’s radar in the 80s and not much on any radar any time since, but they have one of the strongest cult followings you’ll ever find. Weirdass band you’ve never heard of would sell out the Tabernacle and play a 3 hour show with no opening act and every single fan knows all the words. If you’re in the cult (I am) it’s amazing. If you’re not, it’s totally bizarre.
