Mr. Pollo

Perfect For: Date Night Impressing Out of Towners Unique Dining Experience. Going to a tasting menu restaurant can be a lot like going to the symphony. You buy expensive tickets in advance, get dressed up, and act on your best behavior while watching the masters at work in front of you. Mr. Pollo is a tasting menu restaurant, but it’s nothing like this. Set up in an old chicken shack of the same name in the Mission, Mr. Pollo serves a four-course tasting menu for $30, to about eight people at a time, and everything is cooked, run, and operated by two people. Mr. Pollo, if anything, is more like a like a kick*ss garage band that makes food.
