A fascinating history and some of the finest Chicken (Pollo) in the World.

A fascinating history and some of the finest Chicken (Pollo) in the World. Come hungry. Not expensive. In every city it seems. Better, more complete and less expensive than McDonald's

Solid, dependable food with cold beer on the side. Who could object to that? I thought the roasted chicken was very tasty and the service was quite good.

Large menu, very good shareable starters and good food. We came here immediately after entering the country. Several of our party had never been out of the USA and this was a good entry point. The fried cheese sampler was excellent. In fact everything we had was good in total we had 5 different dishes. We may eat there again... More

We stopped here after we landed because we were hungry and the rental car guy recommended it. He also told us about the Soda (local tico restaurant) next to it. I wish we would have gone there. We had the daily special Arroz con pollo (chicken was dry), chalupas, chicken sandwich, and a fried chicken dish. The fried chicken was... More

Rosti Pollos is sort of the US version of KFC but with grilled and local Costa Rican Items. In fact, its probably an insult to say they arte a version of KFC so I'll change that to an upscale version with local flair. The seating is quant and the restaurants are always clean. If you are looking for a less... More

The location of this quasi fast food restaurant was very convenient to our hotel, so we popped in for dinner. Obviously, chicken is the featured food, so we had a half-chicken dinner and a chicken salad. They were fine but not great value. We enjoyed our seats outside on the patio where we could watch the rush hour traffic pass... More

The staff was friendly and when they found I spoke little Spanish, they offered me a English translated menu. There were people that spoke some English and the ordering went smooth. Staff was attentive and the food was great.

For being a chain style restaurant the food was absolutely great! Would highly recommend it. The food was fresh and filling. Reasonable priced with good portions. Nice atmosphere. It was recently remodeled, very clean, & friendly staff!

Usually I like Rosti Pollos, but this place has gone down hill. It now feels like a full service kentucky fried chicken. The price is great, but the service and quality of food are not what they used to be.
