Fresco y sabroso

I wanted a quick light meal for lunch and was not in the mood for a sandwich or a yogurt. I saw this place out of the corner of my eye and decided to give it a whirl. Glad I did....nice grilled chicken, super salad, light dressing. Other foods looked appealing, too.

You cannot beat this for fast food. The chicken is freshly made, and the accompanying sides always hit the mark. I usually order the Tropichop, a one plate meal, in which I include, lettuce, tomato, brown rice, beans, and corn. Other items also may be added. The chicken dinners are probably the most popular item. For the price and quality... More

I love their catering food, excellent. Go into this place and rarely get what you order. This is true in many of their locations. I was so impressed with the catering that I talked my husband into grabbing lunch a few times, once in Boca and once in Deerfield. The food does not look like it is advertised. On two... More

This fast food chain restaurant specializes in Cuban food. I love their marinated grilled chicken and usually get it with their especially flavorful black beans, rice and fried plantains. Service is fast and the price is deliciously reasonable. A great change from the burgers and fries routine.

I tried this place on two occasions and found it to be good. You choose the various items you want in your dish similar to Chipotle. The chicken and shrimp items were tasty. You also have your choice of a variety of different types of salsa. It seems like a good place for a quick carry-out meal or for something... More
