This is a great option to try out local Dominican food. The menu is very limited but they focus on, yes, chicken. Drunken Chicken is their specialty. I was told that the chicken was cooked in some sort of beer-derived sauce but I found it a bit sweet. These are the huge, factory chickens (really plump) that you'll get in... More

Ordered a ton of food for not much money -- chicken, beans, rice, and everything was good. Was a nice take out meal for an easy dinner.

Real Spanish food brought from the countryside to the Bavaro area, for everybody to enjoy, at very adequate and modest prices. Staff and owner are very attentive. Service is good.

El Pollo Borracho means drunken chicken. That is their specialty. Low key roadside dining this place delivers solid chicken in a spare environment. Worth a visit. Directly across from the Sunmix gas station.

Food was good, reasonably priced, and good service. I recommend the sandwiches, wings, (out of calamari, but we had eaten a lot of it already!)

We drove past this place located across from a gas station on our way to pick up groceries. Our friend from Montreal had mentioned the name and told us to remember Drunken chicken, and we will. We actually ate their four times and brought friends to their signature dish. Its two pieces of tender chicken in a beer sauce and... More

I met the owner, Isa, through a mutual friend. She is the owner of this small wonderful restaurant. It is located on a busy intersection with many sites to be had. I enjoyed a few ice cold Presidentes and ordered my meal. In short order I had a beautiful plate of chicken with a side of crispy fries, delicious. You... More

A cool little open air Dominican diner with great fried chicken and cheap beers. Located near Plaza San Juan at the Coco Loco intersection, you'll want to come here at least once on your visit.
