“Rosti-poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

when we first starting to come here to Costa Rica Rostipollos was one you could always count on. As of late the prices have gone up, the quality of food and services has well bottomed out. The quality is hit and miss and the portions are down. They were better when they did not try to change it to suit the North Americans and visitors, they were busier back then and the food was great. The best time is right before each lunch hour or dinner hour. Still not a bad place to eat. Sure beats KFC.

“Had a late lunch here near San Jose airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had a couple of chicken and veggie dishes followed by the Tres Leches (three creams dessert). It was a good choice while waiting for the Grayline shuttle to Liberia. A chain but a family feel to the service.

“Chicken done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is the place to go with the family and enjoy a nice lunch. You can try chicken in various ways but will always come back for more. Apetizers are nice and simple. Price wise they should remember it's only chicken! Several locations around San Jose.
