This place offers a rather simple menu of Island inspired chicken, pork and ribs served with beans and rice and other various sides. The food is pretty solid sauces are amazing and the price is just right. This is a go to spot for me

This is a locally owned fast food chain of restaurants specializing in in tropical marinated chicken and pork. Marinated in lime juice, garlic and other seasonings. Must try. Meals served with 1 or 2 sides: black beans and rice, yucca with garlic sauce (extra starchy potatoes), plantains (fried banana). Remembered this from when I lived here 20 years ago. Remains...

Great food and we sat outside watching all the traffic and people. It was a very busy and interesting place.

Great food, excellent price! Their service is also good. Worth trying their 3 leches :) Pork and chicken are very tasty, their salad could be better

This is a great spot to "Hit the Spot" when feeling for "something"... It is efficient and flavourful with variety.

This is one of the few fast food restaurants where one can eat as healthy or as indulgently as desired. Great condiment bar.

Pretty tasty. Reminds me of Chipotle but not as good. I got the Tropichop with chicken, yellow rice with vegetables and all the works.
