LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Metro Atlanta is known for its fried chicken - and now a new restaurant is adding some more spice to the mix.

Pollo Campero will open its doors in Lawrenceville June 14. The Guatemalan-born fast-casual restaurant will serve up juicy, hand-breaded fried chicken and slow-marinated, citrus-infused grilled chicken as its highlight menu items.

"Using family recipes passed down from generation to generation, including a fried chicken recipe that is considered a national treasure of Guatemala," a news release reads.

Other customer favorites include its empanadas, sweet plantains, and its yuca fries. 

The restaurant will host a ribbon-cutting grand opening on June 14 at 10 a.m led by the Consulate General of Guatemala Telma Borrayo and other city dignitaries. The first 100 guests in line will also get a voucher to receive Campero for a year.
