Our last trip here was our last trip here. The chicken was wrinkled and hard. The 'rice with vegetables' consisted of a small pile of rice, with two peas, two pieces of carrot, and one chunk of something green but otherwise unidentifiable. The staff offered us a 'fresh batch,' which was delivered half-frozen. Ptui.

This is always a great place for take out or sit down. I love to pick up dinner here for the family. Their chicken is moist and favorable. We love the black beans and yellow rice.

Sort of reminds me of "fast food" but top shelf. Got alot of food for the price. There was 4 of us and it came to $42. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had extra to take home. We will go back im sure. Like I said like "fast food" but very good fast food. Good value for the money.

Finally went to Pollo Tropical to try it. SOOOOO glad we did, don't get me wrong, it is more like a fast food place - but it is so much better than all of the other typical fast food places. The Chicken was so flavorful. We will definitely be back.

Most of the time the food is very good with the exception of their rolls which are always dry. I wish they offered a substitute. I always forget to tell them to skip the roll & I end up throwing it away. If they served some butter with it, that would make it a little better. The rest of their... More

yummy take on spanish/caribbean fusion eats! Well run chain and a well run store. We do not generally have an issue eating here, though it can be a little pricey for what you get. ($10 for a chicken leg and yellow rice? really?)

Here you can get chicken platters, sandwiches, wraps etc. with chicken with caribbeans flavors AND SIDES and your choice of condiments to match. If you do not favor chicken, you can get pulled pork or pork loin. Rice comes in "colors" red, brown or yellow. Clean.

Worst place I have ever met, they mistaken my order by 3rd time consecutive since I am coming here to eat something. Service is HORRIBLE Not recommend it at all.
