The restaurant is nice. Greeted immediately and was seated. Then it went down hill from there. Seemed like there a confusion on who was going to be assisting us. It took 5 minutes before someone came to take our drink order. After ordering it took another 20-25 minutes to get our meal. We ordered guacamole, patacones, arroz con pollo(chicken and... More

Not a lot of options to chose, the chicken was ok, a little overcooked I ate here because was close to my hotel, but better to take a taxi somewhere else if you can

A nice place for a family or larger group to stop for a quick meal. All the food was tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. A normal chain restaurant atmosphere.

really nothing special. Slightly higher end than fast food with a better than average fast food atmosphere at elevated prices for very basic food. Nothing wrong with it, but there is definitely better

Went last week while in San Jose and found it relatively pleasant and definitely affordable. I had roasted chicken and it honors the store's name. It was good. The waitress offered me a corn on the cob as an appetizer and I accepted but it was cold. Sent it in for reheating and it was acceptable. The meal was good... More

This is a restaurant that specializes in chicken, which they do very well. There are a number of locations around San Jose, and they are pretty consistent regarding the food, the service can vary a little. Be prepared for fast food restaurant decor, but the food also comes it quick. If you would like a good, quick meal around the... More

Rostipollos is an old timer, that refuses to grow old. Thank Goodness. It is a chiken bar-b-que restaurant, that has managed to improve and continue to give good service with a Costa Rican touch in their menu. Beside the chiken, the side dishes are alway good and well made. Enough parking and takeout facilities. Express service is available. It is... More
