Aaaah, Pollo Tropical. How I miss thee. On the fourth day of our two weeks in Miami, we decided that we were too hungry and had spent too much already to bother with a restaurant, so seeing as our apartment was next door to Pollo Tropical we went in. Now I was apprehensive as I always am with fast food..... More

The food was amazing. I had the trio, chicken wings, chicken quarter, and ribs. Simply amazing, flavor was out of this world, meat was very tender and sauce was exceptional. Portion size was well worth the price.

Caribbean inspired chicken and food. Best time to go is lunch or dinner time when they are busy. The best deal is the family meal. Whole chicken is $12.99. The best chicken I have found. In the Miami area they serve with all disposable plates and utensils. If you head towards north Florida you eat on real plates and metal... More

Chicken overcooked, dry and burned. Some sort of potato cake instead of fries, that tasted too much to flour. Wouldn´t come back

The food was tasty and portions were nice once I finally got what I ordered. The cashier spoke VERY limited English which did not help the ordering process. I had to go back to the counter to get what I asked for (even after POINTING to pictures in the paper menu while ordering).

This is quite a place....though a franchised chain, it's not fast food as all the meats are grilled. It has a Caribbean tropical flavor theme, though there's food for everyone here......Nice selection of side dishes, all healthy, cooked fresh ....a definite stop for me every time I am in the Miami area......all franchises are well staffed and the food is...
