Great lunch spot in Tulum. We ordered a half chicken and shared it between the two of us. It was more than enough as it also came with side dishes. It was very tasty and the service was excellent.

$130. Pesos gets you an entire grilled chicken, spanish rice, salted cabbage salad, fresh tomato style salsa and more corn tortillas than you know what to do with. We fed 3 adults with leftovers to take away. We found little in the town of Tulum that was anywhere near as affordable.

After an epic bike ride to the Mayan Tulum ruins and then to the El Grande Cenote, my buddy and I were STARVED! After the cenote, we turned south and headed to downtown. We rode around the area, just checking out the homes, shops and locals and finally found Pollo Bronco. Very simple menu: chicken - served with rice, corn... More

looking for a real Mexican chicken, this is it. Get in line, they go fast! More of a take out than dine in place!

This is a small local spot popular for takeaway chicken with the locals. A very cheap meal, two can eat here for around 100 pesos. The chicken is super tasty and juicy, and they serve it with awesome tortillas, Mexican rice and a really spicy, flavorful red salsa. A great stop for lunch while shopping in Tulum.

We had lunch here after diving one afternoon. The grilled chicken,warm tortillas, fresh salsa, and papas con queso were delicious. The atmosphere is simple with tables on the sidewalk on the main road in Tulum...nothing fancy...Just great food and service with a smile...A must try!

Tulum town is generally your best bet for food in Tulum. Food near the resorts is often very overpriced and the quality and portions doesn't match what you can get in the pueblo. Pollo Bronco is one of those great restaurants that does one thing incredibly well - they roast chicken. For about $8 you can get 3/4 of a... More

We were on our way from Muyil to Gran Cenote and needed a lunch stop. I consulted my handy dandy Tripadvisor notes, and we were lucky to spot it driving down the street as we weren't sure exactly where it was. One more vote for totally delicious chicken! We also got come papas con queso that was tasty. We didn't... More

60 ps. for half a chicken, tortillas, rice and salsas. We liked it so much we ate here 4 out of the 7 nights we were in Tulum. I still daydream about eating here!

One of the few great hole in the walls we found in Tulum. The chicken is juicy, flavorful and delicious. the rice and beans were full of flavor and the red salsa brought it all together. Good prices and tasty.
