Whole Pollo Asado, or Grilled chicken in Encinitas?

Hello All,

We are vacationing in Encinitas, and are about to be decended upon by my husbands family for an inpromtu dinner for 14.

We figured that the best way to feed the wolverines would be with whole roasted or grilled chicken served Mexican family style. We can do this easily at home, but are not sure if there is a source for this kind of thing here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

  1. Never been there, but is this what you're looking for?

    1. Though a bit north Panca Peruvian rotisserie great Peruvian roasted chicken and sides.

      1. It doesn't advertise itself as a "Mexican" style place (though they do have "Spanish" rice and beans along with steamed veggies and corn on the cob) but for convenience in terms of location (Encinitas), there is Chick's Natural
        However, I 2nd Panca Peruvian and think it's the best (even better than my rec) it's just that it is in Oceanside and might not travel well.
