Pollos Mario, Brentwood: More than just chicken

A jolly yellow chicken in a red vest and a jaunty hat graces both the sign and the menu of Pollos Mario, a Colombian restaurant in Brentwood. Interestingly,  the subtitle of the restaurant's name is ”Steak House & Seafood.”

Predictably, the rotisserie chicken  ($8.25, whole chicken) is juicy and full of flavor with skin burnished a bright red. The surprise is the deliciousness of my friend’s tilapia in an herbal garlic sauce ($15.25).

Perhaps the restaurant should add to its logo a fish in a red vest and jaunty hat.

Pollos Mario is at 78 Wicks Rd. in Brentwood, 631-617-5140. There is also a Pollos Mario at 75 N. Franklin St., Hempstead, 516-505-3200.
