I found another article in the archives from my time as the Houston Barbecue Examiner. This time, it is a little food truck on I-10 East called Pollos Asados el Rodeo.
|Pollos Asados el Rodeo|
Walking up to Pollos Asados El Rodeo, the smell of smoked chicken fills the air. Located on the Southeast corner of South Wayside and I-10, the yellow trailer is the perfect place to stop for a quick bite in the east side of Houston. The menu is simple. Six dollars will buy a half chicken, with homemade corn tortillas, charro beans, green chili sauce, and a lime. If that is not enough, ten dollars will buy the whole chicken. Additional side portions are available for another dollar.
On the down side, there is no place to sit, but the food is wrapped up ready to take home or back to work, making it ideal for a meal on the go. Overall, the food at Pollos Asados is basic. But that is the charm. The chicken is cooked to perfection, leaving anyone wanting for more. This writer is ready for the leftovers in the fridge and planning another visit. Happy eating.
