Chicken Out Tonight on Memorial Dr.

CHICKEN OUT TONIGHT ON MEMORIAL DR. Pollo Bravo, 5440 Memorial Dr, Rice Military, Houston, TX 77007Hybrid Peruvian-Mexican restaurant Pollo Bravo will be flying the coop at 5 PM — the Memorial Dr. and Reinicke St. location will close permanently this evening. The chain’s remaining 2 locations on Hillcroft and Richmond will remain open, and the owner is currently looking for a new space to roost. The locale, which previously housed Hartz Chicken Buffet, converted to a Pollo Bravo by the end of 2012. An LLC connected to developer Amir Taghdisi purchased the property in May, adding to his existing holdings a few blocks west across the street; his strip center at 5801 Memorial Dr. currently houses a Dunkin’ Donuts and Piada Italian Street Food.  Photo: Google Places

  • This place was soooo good

  • Dang it. I love this place.

  • Dang it! What a bummer! Where will I go to get salchi-papas and plantains for my kids now? The food is good, price is reasonable, and the ladies working there always pleasant!

  • Pollo Bravo means “brave chicken”. You have to be brave to eat at a place like that.

  • Pollo Bravo is delicious! I”m very sad – one of the few affordable, delicious and (at times) nutricious options in the area. Great Pisco Sours, fabulous chicken + green sauce… I hope they open up somewhere soon.
    This, combined w/ the recent closure of Te House of Tea is most a most bleak harbringer of 2016 :(

  • Gus Fring is not pleased.

  • Certainly the best place to eat in this neighborhood. Such a shame. And, I thought business had been better lately.

  • Wow!!! That is a shame! I picked up did from there frequently. I work nearby and it was very convenient delicious and tasty food I don’t affordable price. I am sorry to see it go! I hope they’re able to find a location nearby.

  • I wonder if the adjacent apartment building is for sale. That lot would be prime for development of a nice residential or mixed use development. Currently it looks slightly in disrepair. Thoughts?
