I visited family from Aventura and we all went out to Pollo Tropical. It was my first time in a restaurant like this one and it was amazingly good! I did not think I would like the black beans and rice, but was pleasantly surprised how much I like it! My absolute favorite was dunking my chicken into the cilantro... More

This is a fast food restaurant in Sunny Isles Florida . It is surrounded by very expensive condos , stores and other restaurant . This very inexpensive restaurant served much better food than the very expensive surrounding restaurants . The only minor criticism is that whoever is cutting up the meat portions has not sense in making sure each order... More

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.

The food is fast food so quality is average. The service and prices are fair not great, not bad. The atmosphere is usually quiet.

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
