Best chicken ever!

We've been going here for 10 years and this is a must. The chicken is fresh and it comes with all the side dishes. We normally get it to-go and take it back to the house.

Love the chicken! The fixings that they give (beans, tortillas,onions) are also top notch. Will definitely go again and again!

Their chicken is sooooo good. We look forward to stopping here each time we visit. We took our extended family for a post-Christmas dinner and they loved it. It was freezing outside so the inside of the restaurant was equally cold. It was the ONE time I had wished they had walls.

A fun place for the kids with fast friendly service. We ordered a full chicken with a few sides and it was enough for two adults and two children. The balloon man was a hit with the kids and kept us all entertained. A great olace to dine in or take home from on your way into town.

Casual dining with amazing food. Chicken freshly roasted on outside brazier. Great beans and rice . Outdoor seating under palapa type covering. This place is a favorite for tourists, residents and Mexicans alike

I have been eating at this chicken place every year since 2002, and have never been disappointed.I have watched this covered outdoor restaurant upgrade its facilities and price over the years. There are less expensive places to buy grilled chicken, but this is the best pollo carbon in Puerto Penasco, and worth the price. It's best to get there around... More

Family of 11. We ordered 3 birds with the works. Chicken was really good and super fast service. We only had one hour to eat and this place more then met our needs and expectations. It cost about $50 for 11 people.

Authentic dirt floor place where the local families gather. They live here and know value and flavor. You may have to wait 30 minutes for the chicken to get done. So what.. you're vacation. Relax and live, you are not so important; be a human being and look around, there is plenty here so see and the food is good... More

I ordered half of a chicken with rice, beans, and tortillas. That comes with limes, shredded cabbage, salsa and shredded red onion. We ate on the beach on Thanksgiving and watched our two boys run while we dined. My wife made me return to get more from Pollo Lucas about four hours later. Moist and fresh chicken with phenomenal sides!
