This is a fast food take out joint in my neighborhood which also allow customers to dine in, at reasonably low prices. Even though they have a wide variety of meals to choose from, I normally prefer their chicken with Yellow rice, Yuca, Plantains, Beans...More

Great casual dining on this well established So. Florida chain. Ribs are good, chicken is moist and flavorful. All grilled. Good sides. Sauces, and specials. Reasonably priced. My favorite in So Florida.

This place was directly across the Hampton Inn in midtown Miami. Quite popular, crowded, but the food was reasonably quick and quite delicious and fresh. The salsa / condiments bar was well maintained and refreshing. Really enjoyed the fresh salsa/Pico de Gallo and Cilantro jalapeño...More

So glad I chose here to eat instead of other "fast food" choices nearby. Delicious and fresh and the "toppings bar" was amazing. Definitely try the guava BBQ and pineapple rum topings!

Fries were almost black, chicken sandwich was cold and had 2 strange looking pieces of tomato on it, soda not refillable and more than half was ice. Don’t know if this is the Pollo Tropical standard?

The Food is prepared fresh for every customer but that means, bring some Time and wait. The Restaurant doesn't look clean, there are to many customers and the do not manage well to make up after them.

Some chain restaurants that serve chicken are pretty good (Swiss Chalet in Canada for example) but this one - not so much. The chicken was dry, the sauces not so interesting and the service, slow.
