We always get excited when new restaurants open up in our community! Recently we checked out Oli Pollo in LaGrange.

Oli Pollo is located in LaGrange near Walmart and Baptist East at 1024 New Moody Lane.  If you know where the old Sonic was located, you’ll find Oli Pollo.  The owners have transformed the old Sonic building into a Peruvian Rotisserie chicken restaurant.  We were curious what Oli Pollo offered and what Peruvian rotisserie chicken tasted like, so we checked it out for lunch.

If you want to stick to just chicken, there are several combos you can create to include your choice of dark, white or a mix of meat and sides.  You can also purchase an entire rotisserie chicken for around $13.  We hear their cilantro sauce should definitely be added to your order!

Oli Pollo is open seven days a week and offers dine-in and a drive-thru.  Follow their Facebook page because they post daily deals.  We hope you will support this new restaurant in Oldham County and see what Peruvian Rotisserie chicken is all about for yourself!
