RE: "Pollo Campero" Phenomenon
There are several in Northern Virginia, have been for some time now. When they first opened the crowds were HUGE, lines around the building (and police directing traffic). They have since settled down to a thriving business. Latino customers predominate, but the crowd has a lot of variety. They seemed to me to be OK, but not tremendously better than Popeyes. I prefer the "Peruvian" chicken places myself (rotiserie).
