Serious Eats from a year ago. They do have El Pollo Rico on top, but also mention three others: Chicken Rico, Ocopa, and Del Campo.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Oh no Thanks for the Crepes, is Mama Dip's another casualty of second generationitis?  That's too bad.  Anyway, I'm sure that there are still plenty of delicious reasons to make a foodie tour of the triangle area of NC.

Hi, divalasvegas.

 

If you come to NC, please don't do so for Mama Dips. They are another that is resting on past laurels. It's a tourist trap now, but was great in its heyday. $3 for an iced tea anyone?

Hi Alex.  Thanks for the link.  Chicken Rico not only looks delicious but their menu offers a lot more than the three sides--french fries, rice and coleslaw--of El Pollo Rico, and the prices are definitely wallet friendly.

 

The other two sound intriguing but YIKES! $18.00 for a 3 1/2 ounce portion of chicken at Ocopa and $24.00 for a 1/2 chicken at Del Campo are both a bit too pricey for my budget even though the former's chef cooks his chicken sous vide before grilling it while the latter massages duck fat into his along with his secret spice blend. Of course I would easily accept an invitation from any of my more well-heeled local egulleters.xD  I was born and raised in DC and realize that it's an expensive city in which to successfully operate a restaurant but really!
