The quesadilla accompanied by a refreshing Fanta apple soda proved to be a welcome and filling lunch. 

There is always a crowd at Whatapollo & More. 

Once you taste the food, you will know why. 

The little orange building, a former gas station from years ago, has been a popular spot in Baytown for Mexican food lovers the past 18 years. 

Of course, if you want pollo asado, this is the place where you will get more than you will ever need. You can get a Whatapollo meal with full-sized onions, jalapeños, a taco, red sauce, salsa, and a whole chicken. Or get a family size. If you are not that hungry, there is a half-sized Whatapollo. 

Of course, there are traditional Mexican food choices such as tacos (with corn or flour tortillas), fajita chipotle, enchiladas, quesadillas, and burritos. The burritos come with rice, beans, mozzarella cheese, pico de gallo, avocado, sour cream and nacho cheese. Some of the burritos are as big as a strong man’s arm. 

If you want a whole chicken, Whatapollo is ready to serve one up, or just get a half. Add a half-a-pound of fajitas and throw in some grilled vegetables as well.  Either way, your chicken will come with a glazed marinade that gives it a flavor that is not too spicy or under-spiced. Plus, it will retain all of its juiciness. The chicken is really the star of the show at Whatapollo. 

Whatapollo & More does not have any seating, so if you decide to visit, be prepared just to order and go. It gets crowded, and the parking lot fills up fast, so be ready to use your best driving skills to get a parking space. 

The little restaurant has been in Baytown for 18 years, and gains more popularity as each year passes. 

To visit this hidden Baytown gem, go to 500 N. Main St. They are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day but Sundays, when they are closed. 

For to go orders, call 281-420-0170.
