“must try this succulent, delicious (and cheap!) bbq chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

For a mere 35 pesos, I just had one of the most delicious meals I've had in Mexico. I was attracted by the delicious scent wafting through the air and when I saw the line of eager customers, I knew it would be golden. I got 1/4 chicken, two baggies of coleslaw, a giant stack of at least 30 fresh soft corn tortillas, and an amazingly balanced, flavorful salsa. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone with tastebuds and an appetite. Just beware they close at 7pm and not a minute later, so make sure you come before.

“An Easy Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Not my favorite asadero in town, but a solid choice for a tasty, substantial, easy meal. Eat in or better yet, get it to go and have a picnic on the beach. Comes withfree salsa, tortillas, cabbage salad, and rice. Other sides available for purchase. A whole chicken goes pretty far when you utilize the tortillas and fill them with chicken, cabbage, rice and salsa. Yum.

“Unmissable for all BBQ Chicken Lovers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We got atracted by this place thanks to the excellent reviews in Tripadvisor and one more time...no fail!
The place is very well located, in Tulum Avenue on the left hand side coming from Tulum ruins. Simple and pure mexican style, red plastic tables and menu written on the wall. We were the only two foreigners eating in.
They do only BBQ chicken and very good priced. Half chicken for two with rice, hot tortillas, white cabbage and hot tomato sauce for only 70 pesos! 3/4 of chicken for two costs 100 pesos!
Great deal!
ONE OF THE BEST BBQ CHICKEN EVER EATEN
Give it a try!

“great cheap eats”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
