Every time I am in Florida I find a Pollo Tropical. Good chicken, yucca in butter, green. Evans and cottage fries. It is steps above KFC and makes you feel like you are back in the islands! Decor is standard but always clean

Got two pork meals to take out and truthfully we feel it's superior to pollo tropical's chicken which we find is often over cooked. Pork was moist and delicious, rice, beans and plantains fabulous. :-)

Standard Pollo Tropical décor, easy entrance and parking, and very busy. They have a good staff, the standard menu, most of the customers are local and latin. I had ice tea, chicken breast, yellow rice, onions and salsa.

The service is a bit off as they seemed to have forgotten the children's dinner I ordered although I had asked if they had taken down my order properly. Beyond that, the food was delicious and incredibly inexpensive. This is a must visit if you...More
