Hearty Food, Great Value

What joy to find tasty, South American-style food in a neighborhood awash with pricey tourist restaurants!

Good basic food, marinated Chicken with Rice and beans, cant beat eat, the decor may be basic and the food on disposable plates with plastic cutlery but the taste is great and the cost wont break the bank

We stopped in on a whim. Chicken was awesome, loved the meal. Enjoyed the food. Can't say enough good things about this chain. Wish there was one local to me.

I went here in a whim & was SO glad I did! The chicken was so flavorful & freshly cooked. I really enjoyed my meal & will definitely dine again when it's an option.

coming from a Caribbean background, the food was right at home for me. The in-house free wifi was accomodating for me as well.

I first ate Pollo tropical in Miami and remember thinking wish we had this in Texas where I'm from. Now we have 2 in Texas (not as good ) as the Miami chain though.... can't touch Caribbean food but it's a nice substitute when I can't have Caribbean food. Healthier way of eating

So, you go to a McDonald's and the Big Mac always tastes like it is supposed to. That is what I expect from a chain. Otherwise it wouldn't be a chain. If you agree, this place is for you. Other than the taste (I love it! Great for a low priced grub! Not nouvelle cuisine or michelin stars but good),... More
