King Pollo, a local Peruvian chicken chainlet, is renovating space at 2254G Hunters Woods Plaza, according to Fairfax County records.
King Pollo also has stores in Woodbridge, Alexandria, Sterling, Chantilly and Silver Spring.
The restaurant specializes in Peruvian-style wood charcoal broiled chicken. Chicken meals come with sides, including yuca, plantains, vegetables and fries. There are other South American specialities too, including beef and pork dishes and pupusas. See the menu on King Pollo’s website.
No opening date has been announced. Also, two other restaurants that signed leases for space at Hunters Woods in recent years never opened. Chinto’s Burritos was scheduled to open in 2014, but scrapped plans due to financing issues.
A Pho restaurant signed a lease for the former Cold Spoon frozen yogurt spot in September 2015. However, work has not begun and a sign on the window says the space is still for rent.
