Chicken, as only they can do it.

I have been to every chicken place around that tries to duplicate Pollo Lucas.. The quality and the details are always slightly awry, the accompaniments not so good. They have nailed the details on this. Thusly written , it is twice as much but I, for one, prefer paying for quality. Always a great... read more

Although it was a bit awkward figuring out the system, we quickly learned to just sit down, smell the roasting chicken, people watch, and wait for someone to take our order. I thought I was ordering just a couple pieces of chicken (maybe a 2 piece dinner in the US). Man was I surprised when they brought a plate mounded... More

Maybe its the pickled onions, or their great salsa. Certainly the tortillas have something to do with it. But regardless, this is on the top of my list of "must have" eateries in Rocky Point. Price is good, people nice enough. Easily found too. Great for take-out to the beach or condo. Highly recommended.

One of our favorite places to go in Rocky Point. Last time there we had a whole chicken, 2 sides, tortillas, and 2 sodas for 20 bucks.Does it get any better?? Can't wait to go back. It will probobly be the first place we go to eat when we go down ther in early May.

Always have to stop here at least once when in Rocky Point! Very inexpensive, server did not speak much English so a bit hard to communicate.

Consistently delicious ! When we got to town we took our bags up to the condo, took a swim then headed to Pollo Lucas. It is a favorite of ours. The chicken is so tender and flavorful and is accompanied by homemade tortillas, beans and rice. Nothing fancy- it doesn't need to be. The food speaks for itself.

We stop at Pollo Lucas on every visit to Rocky Point. The food is cheap, the atmosphere is good, and the portions are good. Our last visit was just my wife and I and we ordered a full chicken, that way we'd have lots of left overs for the entire stay. Make sure to eat the salsa sparingly, unless you... More

We were uncertain about the "rural" aspect of the place (dusty parking lot, stray dog, etc) but inside, it was clean and airy. KACMANONTHEROAD said in a review said it was a little pricy and not as tasty as Satisfied Frog's? He needs to lay off the tequila. (Satisfied Frog's chicken is great - but it's fried, so big difference.)... More

This place had the right atmosphere to know we were in Mexico, but not have any concerns about eating there. The food and the service were good. Only go there if everyone in your party wants to eat chicken, but your choice of entree is chicken, chicken or chicken.
