Roast chicken seems to be among the most popular street foods here in Michoacán. For example, every time we drive up through Tzurumutaro we see pollo asado stands along the roadway.

Although there are two related Pollo Coas shown on Google Maps. we patronize only the one near the corner of Avenida Camelinas and Avenida Arriage/Sanson Flores. It's kitty corner from a big IMSS hospital. Oddly, Google maps shows it as "Alimentos Condimentados"
The restaurant is located up a scrolling iron staircase. Unlike many roadside pollos asados joints, Pollo Coa is a well ordered, full service restaurant. Service is above average. Although its specially roast chicken is the star of the menu, you can also order breakfast foods such as hot cakes, eggs, and even enchiladas.

We prefer the Paquete menus, which offers a slice of fresh fruit, a beverage (usually agua de jamaica. For a few pesos more, you can get a soft drink), consomé, chicken, carrot salad, and meh! potato chips. There's also a basket of warm, decent crusty bread and a crock of butter. On the table are two salsas; a picante red and a mild green.
The Individual paquete price is about $170 pesos. But the a la carte menu is also available. If we want a small meal, we would have the consomé. It's offered in various ways to please all.
There are very few negatives in my opinion. A Tortoa sandwich was so salty that I returned it. On my first visit, years ago, the rabbit I chose was inedibly dry.
Although the restroom is very clean, it is down a short flight of stairs. As mentioned before, the restaurant itself is up one flight of exterior stairs.
Due to flaws, I am digging deep into my shareable Google photos, but I don't know why the Disqus comments section doesn't show up. I hope to have these problemsa straightened out in a few months. ;-)

I hope now that these photos are visible to the public.
As for Disqus, it seem to have vanished. But I'll keep trying. This is a life work.
My efforts to reestablish Disqus resulted in the entire post disappearing. But I found a "back door" and got the post back.
Time for a nap.
Here's a copy and paste, from a previos version.
