Street side Mesquite broiled chicken, Yummmmm.

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.

A quick stop for dinner, or lunch. Outside sitting area and nothing but Pollo is served. You can buy 1/2 chicken grilled with tortillas and all the fixings for 5 bucks. You can add rice and beans, drinks they have soup and salads too! great place to eat and see the world go by. Very resonable price for good food..

We stopped there for lunch and found the prices a little on the high side. The chicken is BBQ'd fresh on the grill but it wasn't as tasty as the chicken at the Satisfied Frog down on the Malicon.

The chicken is Char Broiled on an outdoor grill and is nice and crispy (a little touch of spice) If you get the full meal deal ($12) it consists of chicken, fried beans, cabbage, Mexican rice, pickled onions, salsa, limes and warm tortillas We took it back to where we were staying and it was two meals for the two...

This place is also referred to as crack chicken. The chicken here is so good, and definitely somewhere you will want to go back to over and over. as others mentioned it is a great value, and amazing food. Typical atmosphere for style of restaurant, but you're there for the food not the environment.
