New Pollo Regio restaurant being developed in Alton 



Pollo Regio was founded by Mr. Juan Bazaldua in Austin, Texas.  He set up a special trailer that was outfitted with a charcoal grill, over which he cooked his special recipe marinated chicken.  The demand for his chicken was so great that it was not unusual for him to have sold everything he brought with him by noon each day and have people placing orders for the next day.  It became obvious that Mr. Bazaldua needed more space so he moved into a regular storefront.  He has since expanded in Austin, the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Houston, Waco and now the Rio Grande Valley.  We welcome Mr. Bazaldua and his chain of grill chicken restaurants.  Establishment will be located along Alton Blvd.
