Pollo a la brasa might be the lure, but the lip-smacking doesn’t end with the juicy, spit-roasted birds. The star of this order-at-the-counter operation in Rockville Town Square is asado de tira, a thin, grilled short-rib steak with more flavor than some porterhouses. It’s backed by an unusually strong supporting cast, from the soups and sides (a great tamale) to the sandwiches and house-made desserts.
