Typically awesome

Pollo tropical rarely disappoints me. This location was no exception. Conveniently located near the beach and amongst other standard shopping.

Check your order! Always have to go back in and make sure everything is actually there. Don't get the avocado salad. Disgusting. Stick to chicken and the yucca.

The ribs are good. Our favorite is the tropi-chop. You can select chicken or mojo pork on white/ brown rice or yellow rice and then add beans, corn, chopped tomato and onions. Makes a very satisfying meal for under $6. The chicken Cesar salad is great also. It's definitely fast food, but better than the burger joints.

Don't go to that location !-not clean -employees are not as nice and clean.. as other Pollo Tropical location -this is like a franchisee that doesn't care enough about his/her location. Chicken is almost always burned !!

My husband and I both ordered chicken platters;I got the quarter chicken, he got the half chicken. The chicken was cooked well, but not dry and overdone. The sides of Caesar salad were cool and fresh tasting. He got the yellow rice, which he thought was bland, but they offer a number of sauces on the sauce bar that could... More

Great for "fast food". One of my favorite places to go for a good quick meal. Take out or eat in the food is always good and fresh, The yellow rice is yummy.

Not a greatest environment. Be aware that their chicken salad has 1100 calories. It is a hefty meal for a salad. However, from fast food places, dishes are descent and grilled mostly, which is give you some advantage against greasy OTHER fast foods.
