Chef Hector Santiago's new restaurant, El Burro Pollo, is now open at the Collective Food Hall at Coda. Based on the Puerto Rican chef's long-running burrito and ceviche pop-up, El Burro Pollo will soft-open this week, meaning that hours, menu availability and service could fluctuate as the restaurant prepares for the food hall's grand opening March 19.

Labeled as a burrito and ceviche cantina, El Burro Pollo will feature cuisine modeled on the culinary styles of the Pacific coast of Mexico. The restaurant will be open 11 a.m.- 9  p.m. during its first weeks and will also serve beer, wine and cocktails.

“El Burro Pollo is a love letter to Mexico that will offer guests an authentic taste of 1980’s Juarez street food and Mexican Pacific Ceviches. Flavors that will carry you through the exploration of  the Mexican palate with fresh, spicy and boldly delicious simple flavors unlike any other in Atlanta,” said Santiago in a prepared statement.

The Collective Food Hall, also home to the recently-opened location of Poke Burri, Aviva by Kameel, Wildleaf and more, will host a grand opening party on Thursday, March 19. After Poke Burri, El Burro Pollo is the second restaurant to soft-open in the new Coda space.
