good food. typical service for a quasi-fast food place. The food was fresh and hot. Lots of parking. Convenient location too. Worth a trip if you've never tried it before.

Chicken is REALLY GOOD if it's fresh....it's not as good later in the evening.....sides are really good except the black beans lack seasoning....the yellow rice and plantains are the best. ..yucca is decent. ..they call it Caribbean food but it's really Cuban food, without as much seasoning. ...there is no Jerk season here..that I know of. ...

Was going to try this on Sunday for lunch, but it's just a fast food taco stop. We walked in and looked at the menu, there were no customers at the counter, 2 employees just stood behind the counter watching us never said a word we stood there for at least 5 mins. then walked out. I would of at least said hello or welcome to any customer walking through the door,

Were introduced to Pollo Tropical by getting a coupon - this was used at the Kennesaw location - we fell in love with the different (and refreshing) new taste!
Visited that location a few times (a bit far from where we live) and were so pleased when the Woodstock location opened.
Food is great, options are great too, as we said we loved the different refreshing taste of chicken dishes served - one can get tired of Zaxby's, KFC, Chic-fil-A etc. Oh, and the service is good as well!

We have dinned at other Pollo Tropical restaurants, but this was our first visit to this location. We arrived towards the end of a Friday dinner rush. The restaurant was bright, inviting, and clean. The menu options are broad and can be overwhelming for first time visitors, but paper menus are available. Similar to other restaurants, you order and pay at the counter where you are given a number. A server then delivers your food to your table. There are signs on the walls that state that tipping is not required.

Everyone in our party of four ordered something different. As noted by other travelers, the portions were relatively small and most of the food was lukewarm. I had the Chicken Quesadilla Wrap with Brown Rice and Black Beans. The only "heat" in the wrap was from the "tangy chipotle dressing" - which was actually on the mild side. The rice and beans lacked lacked any noteworthy spices. I tasted a few of the other dishes ordered by our group, but did not find anything better than average. The Corn Fritters were good, but the Sweet Plantains were overcooked and not very sweet.

Pollo Tropical is an alternative to traditional fast food, but with small portions, small flavors, and small values.
