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.

Best option for fast food. Real food to go. Everything is fresh because there is always people on the drive trough and inside. Recommended.

First time at Pollo Tropical. It was ok, but not really good. The chicken was not very flavorful. The yellow rice was ok, the white rice very bland. The beans had little texture. The Tres Leches Cake was actually pretty good, nice spicey flavor.

This was my first time trying this restaurant. The sauce bar is interesting as they have numerous types of sauces to add to your food. The menu is pretty large: they have smoked chicken, ribs, and other Cuban style foods. Its not really authentic but...More
