Mexico has all of these wonderful chicken grills that waft mouth watering smells as you drive by. Yesterday we stopped and bought the "full meal deal" - a whole chicken, rice, beans, diced cabbage, salsa, pickled onions and tortillas - all for $20 bucks. What a deal and it was delicious.

Love to eat here! Thatched Roof, outdoor restaurant. Chicken cooked on a grill right in the open area. Basic fare. Grilled Chicken, Rice, Beans, Tortillas, sodas. But very inexpensive. Plenty to eat. We eat here at least once each time we visit Puerto Peñasco.

This place is hands down one of my favorite places to eat when visiting. I had it for the first time in August 2014, with a couple of repeat visits that trip, and again during my most recent visit. It is always on my list of places to eat when visiting Penasco. The chickens, beans, rice, and tortillas are divine!... More

Just grabbed a entero chicken, beans, rice and tortilla. Wow, I have had chicken on the open grill in Playa Del carmen but this blows it away. Sitting in the room at Dream Weaver with the football playoffs on eating the best chicken. Great taste, portion, rice and beans!

We have been there twice in 3 days. The first visit was five stars. 130 pesos for a half chicken, beans, rice, and tortillas. Generous portions. The 2nd visit was at night (a 2 star visit). We had 15 people and they made a comment that they only had 7 chickens. A group of the same size came in after... More

This is THE place to eat pollo in PP. It's right on the main drag and can't be missed. We eat there at least 2-3 times every time we're in PP. Lots of chicken, beans, tortillas and salsa for cheap. Cooked fresh and served up hot.

The bird is small but then that's a good indication it is also hormone free! If you can drive past that enticing aroma of roasting chicken over an open pit then you are stronger than most... Close as I have seen to Hawaii's Huli Huli Chicken - and as always at a good price - if you see the locals... More

We have eaten at Pollo Lucas numerous times with both large and small parties. Every time the service has been fast and pleasant and the food good. The ambiance is good as long as the weather isn't extremely hot or cold since it is all outdoor seating under a palapa.
