Great find on TripAdvisor! This local spot had wonderful grilled chicken! We got an entire chicken, rice, coleslaw and tortilla shells for $10! This meal easily fed 2 people. My husband and I ate here several times during our trip to Tulum. Just be aware, they do not take credit cares nor do they have AC, but you can get... More

Wow. Seriously great chicken. I love a place that does just one thing, and does it well. The skin in the chicken is perfectly crispy, cooked in their big wood-fired oven. You also get a great tomato-based salsa, rice, salad and tortillas. This is place is a must.

This is the best chicken. A whole chicken, slaw, rice, salsa, and tortillas for about $10. We loved it!! Servers were very friendly as well.

This was the best chicken I have ever tasted. It is marinated for one hour in a mixture of pineapple, lemon, garlic, salt and water, and cooked in their brick oven right in front of you. The wait staff are very friendly and excited to tell you about chicken. It was so good that we went back the next day.... More

This is a great place for a quick take out. The Chicken is very well spiced and tasty. This is not a place if you are looking for ambience. It is excellent value for what you spend.

At the end of a day trip from Cancun, My wife and I stopped here on advice of others. Great advice! We got 2 chickens! This wood fired garlicky chicken is among the best we have ever had., It comes with salsa and slaw, but we also got the spaghetti. A Kilo of tortillas is about 8 pesos! Excellent !... More

This was, hands down, our family's favorite restaurant during our recent trip to Mexico. And ironically, I think it was the cheapest! For $12 USD we got a whole grilled chicken (which they cut in pieces for us), tortillas, rice, and cole slaw. Then for a few dollars more we added on one potato per person (they are cheesy mashed...

I've stopped in this place only because I was in a hurry and need to buy something fast. However, that was a good surprise, good taste. The specialty of this place is roasted chicken. If you are looking for a place, simple, cheap with a nice food, don't be afraid. This place is amazing.

The chicken at Pollo Bronco is great, and all for so cheap too. You get a huge portion of chicken that is hot and delicious, plus all the sides for just 90 pesos. Can't be beat. We picked it up and took it back to our hotel for an amazing beach front picnic of freshly grilled chicken, warm tasty tortillas,... More
