“Simple but perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Half BBQd chicken, shredded cabbage, fresh salsa picante and homemade tortillas...and a bottle of cold coke all for about 100 pesos. A perfect and simple lunch while we explored the town.

This was my second time and it did not disappoint.

“Amazing Chicken!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

This is some of the best bbq chicken we have ever had. We stopped in for lunch one day and ordered the whole chicken. It was so much, it came back to the condo with us for a snack later. We also picked up a chicken to go one day to have for lunch at the beach. We just threw it in the cooler with ice packs; it was the best lunch. Its so cheap too; 120 pesos gets you the chicken, tortillas, salsa and salad. Such a great deal!

“Excellent chicken on the go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Don't miss this for a fabulous take-out chicken. Order a whole chicken, which comes with salsa, rice, and tortillas, and take it home for one of the best meals-on the-go for 120 pesos ! When in Tulum, we never miss this place; conveniently located on the main street, easy to stop in while shopping or just passing through town.

“Still Here Cookin' Pollo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

This spot was a favorite years ago. It is still a great value(120 pesos for a whole chicken with Mexican fixins'), and the chicken is still delicious. I miss the old PIT feel it used to have but the flavor is still spot on.

“I love this place so much”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Every time we go to Tulum I look forward to Pollo Bronco. There aren't a lot of frills but the chicken is f'n good. It's simple, it's cheap, and it really is f'n good chicken. You can eat it in, you can take it to the beach, you can eat it in the streets. Seriously, if you're in Tulum eat at Pollo Bronco.
