“Well prepared but nothing spectacular”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The menu hasn't changed in over 20 years, and I just don't see any reason to go back. It is typical Tico food.

“Roast chicken and burgers and good in a pinch”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

RostiPollos is a ubiquitous fast food chain in Costa Rica that offers dishes made with roasted chicken. Their sandwiches are tasty enough and probably better for me than the crispy wonders served at Pollo Comperro, but I’d rather head to Soda Tapia or some other place offering more typical Costa Rican food. Still, it’s a decent place and the food is a bargain. Give it a shot.

“Totally unsatisfying experience”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The franchise of Rostipollos that I visited is situated opposite the Sabana Park. The meal I ordered was delivered very fast but arrived at my table almost cold. The only thing hot enough on my plate were the two chicken drumsticks. The amount of chicken could have filled a one ounce jigger. And they brazenly called it a chicken dish!
Not only was overall quality of the meal substandard, but it was also overpriced. That meal plus a bottle of a local beer came to $11.75 incl. taxes. Not once was I asked by the server if everything is satisfactory.

“Rosti-poor”
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.
