This place is delicious! The last time we saw a Pollo Tropical was in Puerto Roco, I think. So we absolutely had to stop. So glad we did. Love the sweet plantains. Yum!

This is my go to restaurant every time I'm in Tampa. Fast and is usually very good. Sometime off on the food but it's more of a nice fast food place so kind of expected. Love the variety of food and all the yummy sauces....More
