Been going to this restaurant for about 5 years, because I keep coming back to Yelapa. The meals are huge but can do half order. Their specialty is chicken and its yummy. I rarely eat beef but the arrechera is amazingly good and tender. Meals are served with bean, rice, mashed potato, small salad and tortillas. Impossible to eat it all!!! There I also a seafood option with shrimp or fish. Soda, beer, sangria and margaritas. Gotta go for the chicken and beef!!! Many locals eat here, take this as a good sign and do yourself a favor, go to this restaurant.

You will get your belly full here with good size portions and satisfying, delicious food. There is not one thing on their menu not worth raving about. The staff is professional and prompt. With a name like Pollo Bollo you better try the chicken, but I look forward to the scewers of fish and vegies, mashed potatoes, warm rice...I'm drooling thiking about it. Always busy, not open every day or all season, worth the wait!!!

This is a comfort food restaurant with good service and cold beer, and it's helpful to know this before you go. Do not expect fancy food, but expect good food. It's located in town, and has been full when we ate there. You will see many Yelapans at Pollo Bollo. I had ribs on our most recent visit, and they were excellent. Family members enjoyed their dinners as well. The portions are generous, to say the least, the waiters are attentive and efficient, and the prices are low. The dining crowd was happy and talkative, and everyone seemd to be having a good time and an extra beer. That's the type of place you'll find, and we enjoyed it. You won't need breakfast the next morning.

On the plus side Pollo Bollo has a well staffed kitchen and friendly wait staff. During slow season they are the only restaurant open in the pueblo on Sunday. And for sure you will get good portions. But the food is far too bland especially compared to Shambala and Los Juelos. The side orders never change - mashed potatoes, rice, beans, lettuce and tomato. Too many carbs with same, same exact, cafeteria like portions. No bueno!
