This place used to be much better. The flavors are not the same. The staff is nice but nothing tastes the way it used to.

Have been visiting Pollos Mario for many years, starting back with the location when we lived in NY. This was our family's Friday night dinner spot - good food, reasonable prices, and great service. However, since about June 2016, the experience has been going downhill. The food is mediocre at best, the bowls of beans are just water with nearly... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very tasty dinner at the Pollos Mario Columbian restaurant in Hackensack, NJ. I had empanadas, chicken and sweet plantains.

Pollos Mario is a large Colombian food chain. This location's food is always consistently great. Food is authentic and as their name states. Rotisserie chicken being their speciality. They offer an array of dishes along with a kiddie menu. It's a fun and family friendly enviornment. Service is friendly though depending on ur server the language barrier can be a... More

It hit me when I was standing in front of the cash register at Pollo Mario's in Hackensack and the not so nice woman taking the money. They are so rude if you are not Latino. This woman refused to greet me when I walked in, but she totally refused to make eye contact with me at this point I... More

When you walk in their is a case of hot snacks and pastries that are reasonably priced and so good. The empanadas are really good and their sugar doughnuts are super sweet. It makes a great and quick snack when you are on the run. They make something new which is a mashed potato ball filled with rice and ground... More

It is extremely rare that I actually write a review but I am compelled to after my recent experience with Pollos Mario. I ordered food from this place and was later informed my apartment was not able to receive delivery (AFTER 45 MINUTES). The women who claimed to be the manager (she would not provide her name) actually blamed me.... More

I went with friends to this Latino restaurant, and was not disappointed in its Latino atmosphere and food. It is a good restaurant, but not one of the best… Not what you would call a classy place. If you are Latino, or use to eating in normal restaurants in Central and South America, then you will find this place to... More

The owners daughter has gotten involved with the recent renovation of Pollos Mario and on top of their wonderful food and take out snacks, they opened a bakery with freshest made doughnuts stuffed with jellies and other fillings and covered with sugar. Their take out snack selection will make this a go to place for people at the court house.
