“This place delivers....best BBQ chicken in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

2 and half chickens, bbqed to perfection, delivered to The Beach Tulum. Comes with all the fixings (Rice, tortillas, slaw, sauces) all for 360 pesos. Fed 6. We ate this pool side and it was easily one of the best meals.

“great cheap eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

For some of the best grilled/barbecued chicken anywhere at a price that's hard top beat, check out Pollo Bronco in the center of Tulum Pueblo right on the main st. For about $10 two diners can have their fill of their tasty grilled chicken, tortillas, salad, salsa and a drink. Be advised that beer and wine are not sold here but you can bring your own if you are are discrete about it. Also take note that you cannot depend on Pollo Bronco as a dinner option, as they usually sell out of the day's supply of chicken in the late afternoon, but if you happen to be in the pueblo for lunch, don't miss this classic.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Probably the most flavorful chicken I have ever had and probably the cheapest as well. I think it was 65 pesos for half a chicken, a baggie of rice and about 20 corn tortillas. If I had a car, I probably would have eaten here a few more times.

It's not going to win any awards for presentation and the restaurant is plastic chairs and tables place but the food was damn good.

“Best chicken in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Stopped by for lunch while shopping and thoroughly enjoyed it. Split a half chicken and also got a bottle of cold Coke. Came with rice and tortillas to make tacos out of. Chicken was very tasty.

“best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not only was it the best meal I had the whole time I was in Mexico but it was the best chicken I have EVER had! I was not too thrilled when my husband pointed out the restaurant and said "I want chicken tonight" but boy was I thrilled when I was done eating. I can't wait to go back and visit Tulum and have some more chicken!
