I have NEVER had better Fried Chicken and Rotisserie Chicken. Today I had the Rotisserie Whole Chicken. The flavoring was delicious and the meat was juicy. I have read other reviews stating the chicken has no flavor and is dry. Are those people sure they were at Monkey's Chicken? I had family in last week and they asked if we... More

We have eaten here on every trip to Manzanillo, some trips several times. Went again this year. As I stated in previous reviews, the staff always seem to have difficulty in getting our order right. Happened again this year - the side of fries came well before the rest of the meal, we had finished them prior to the chicken... More

Great food, good prices. Clean restaurant. Good service. Good location right on the main drag. We had the meal deals and they were very good and inexpensive. A nice change from the hotel food.

Ate here in the past so tried it a few times on our recent trip. The chicken is good, way better than most of the fast food places. Prices are OK. Only complaint is that they struggled with our order every time. Despite pointing it out on both the English and Spanish menus, it invariably took one of the senior... More

With recommendations from friends and comments on this site, we tried Monkeys again. Chicken was dry with very little taste. Even the Colonel is better. The coleslaw was very good.

Manzanillo has two Monkeys restaurants; one on Miguel de la Madrid in the hotel zone and another downtown. More of a fast food restaurant, although they do have seating and do sell beer. The chicken is head and shoulders above KFC, more like Popeye's if you are aware of them. We pick up a meal and take it to the... More

Excellent Spicy fried chicken sandwich. Very, very tasty. Family always insists on stopping at Monkey's as the last meal in ZLO before we leave.

I am surprised that more people here for the season don't know how delicious Monkey's chicken is. It is so affordable and handy for take out for dinner at home or a picnic to the beach or mountains. The only problem is the smell of that chicken before you get there. You may have to pull over and have one... More
