quick cheap family dinner

had dinner with family while in Belen, did not want to go all in, so this was great alternative. Grilled chicken is key, tasty and affordable. call it a semi fastfood place with table service, which worked fine for us.

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.

Always visit Rosti Pollos when in San Jose. :) Yummm Love the avocado and pico de gallo! The plantain dishes are superb. Always a great affordable place to grab a bite.

We stopped here before dropping the rental car off, heading out of town. The food was less than average. The chicken arrived without skin. My plantain after the rest of the meal had been almost completely finished. The selection was poor and the waiter was just there. All in all, I would have been better off eating at kfc.

I guess if you like chicken in a large variety of ways, rosti pollos is the place. It is all fast food and no so healthy but some people like that. It is a family place too and the price is OK.

Near Clinica Unibe hospital in San Jose, not the one in Alajuela, but they are all about the same. I frequently travel there with groups of Americans going to the hospital for medical care, members from Samaritan Christian Healthcare Ministries. We usually eat there at least once during the day, between appointments. So, I have eaten there many times. For... More
