School Bus Chicken

For some reason, roast chicken dinners often come from "taco school buses" rather than taco trucks. I like Pollos Asados La Silla, a school bus parked at the intersection of Lawndale and Highway 225. It's bright yellow with a giant chicken character and the saddle-shaped mountain peak called "la silla" (the saddle) painted on the side. "La silla" is a landmark of Monterrey, Mexico.

For six bucks, these guys give you a half of of a tasty charcoal-grilled pollo, a bowl of frijoles, salsa and a stack of tortillas. A whole chicken is ten bucks. -- Robb Walsh
