I ordered the chicken breast, with yellow rice, lettuce and marinated tomatoes. It was reasonable and tasted really good. The staff was friendly. Areas looked clean. I like the different sauces esp. The one with cilantro. Lots of selection here.

Recently added a lite menu. Great selection of Caribbean style meals with pork, ribs or chicken. Try the fried plantains for variety. Portions are good size while cost is fair.

The grilled 1/2 chicken w/ one side is a great deal at Pollo Tropical. It also tastes great. I haven't found a side I Love yet. I'm a big fan of Black bean and rice, but Pollo's just isn’t that tasty; IMHO. But you still can't beat the value and taste for fast food. I’ve eaten at this location 4... More

This Pollo Tropical is very different from any other we have been to. You place your order for dine in and you get a table number and server brings your food out to you. No tips required. Impressively clean restaurant and restrooms. The restaurant sells white and red wines along with a variety of beers. My family had a awesome... More
