Best grilled chicken I've ever had!

This place has amazing tasting grilled chicken! We were more than pleasntly surprised at the flavor of not only the chicken, but of the pickled onions.served with it. The beans seem to have been put into a blender, they were so smooth, and the rice was just okay. The quantities are what you have to... read more

Good food, good prices, pretty good service: we waited about 45 minutes for our meal. So, be prepared to just chill out for a bit. :)

We come down to RP as a family quite often about 10-5 times a year, by SUV, from Phoenix. Lucas Chicken or Tacos Brisas is usually one of our first stop into town to pick up food to take to the condo! My 7 year old Grandson, Braden says, "It's the best chicken, salsa, beans and rice ever" if you... More

Not many menu options except the size of the chicken you'd like to order. Whole, half or quarter. They offer usual sides like mexican rice, refried beans and macaroni salad. Chicken is very juicy and flavorful. A must try to believe. We stop every time we're in town at least once or twice.

Roast chicken on the grill two sides, homemade tortillas and salsa with a Coke Mexican style for four about $20. You won't walk away hungry or disappointed. Served under a thatched roof open air as many of the local restaurants are in the area. Locals and tourists alike pack in here. I definitely will eat there again.

If you like chicken, come here. The menu consists of 1/4, 1/2, or whole grilled chicken, homemade tortillas, and rice and beans. We went twice in a row, we liked it so much. We got the whole chicken and had lunch leftovers for the next day.
