We ate there on a Saturday night and had very good food. I had a quesadilla and the cornbread casserole thing. It was very good. I tried all the sauces with my quesadilla and enjoyed the rum pineapple sauce the best.

First visit so was a bit baffled by what I was suppose to do but figured it out. Food was really delicious and the sauces were fantastic. Would like to say I had a favorite but each was unique and wonderful so I just mixed them all up and ate it! Will be going back.

Having been to other locations before, stopped in here for lunch. We know the food is always good and portions are filling. They have the BEST chicken anywhere.

I have gone to this location for five years. I recently started going often. Good food, tasty chicken, good side dishes. All at a reasonable price. It can get crowded on a Sunday. I mainly get the grilled chicken, but they have other good entrees. A good family place. Another plus is they give you condiments like hot peppers and... More

Tropichop is a great value! The mojo pork and yellow rice with veggies are always awesome. Sign up for the text message coupons to get great deals.

The grilled chicken in this restaurant is outstanding. A half chicken with soda costs less than $10. You can order take-out or eat in the restaurant. I have been there many times and every visit has been good.

The Chicken and mojo pork are our favorite meats though we have enjoyed everything on the menu. We are usually with a group of 5 or more and start with a family meal and then add in other things. You do go to the counter to order and then get your on condiments and drinks. But they bring the food... More

We went here while on a visit to N. Ft. Myers. The chicken has a very good flavor. When you arrive, you place your order then go to your table with a number. Someone then brings your food out on REAL plates. We were please with the staff and food. They also have beer! Great fast food place.
